    1: What the fff is all that about??? All that crap below your reply I mean, get a life mate
    2: no info on google abt the pace sv5 rang asda they have no idea what i was talking about,
    3: Your total contribution to this forum, bordering on trolling, seems to have been a collection of snipes, one liners & asterisked expletives

    With ADSL, you generally dont get the advertised 'possible' speed and the actual speed tends to fluctuate quite significantly. The real killer though is likely contention. With ADSL your likely to be contending for fairly limited bandwidth with your near neighbours. The more neighbours using the internet at any one time the slower you'll download !

    VM also have contention but its much more managed and there's generally much more bandwidth available to be shared amongst fewer customers.
