Just a heads up for people using this service, its no longer unlimited, they have changed the T&Cs and have implemented a fair usage policy. Only really going to affect really heavy users, but a heads up none the less.

Letters are being sent out to heavy users, asking for them to download after 9pm as it is affecting the network.

He works for them so he knows before its released :)

oh well at least i wasnt missing the obvious on the page!!! still sucks though! i assume they are allowed to do this as their t&C's will say subject to change!!!.

i just dont get why they would do this when i read the other week they were ready to introduce much higher speeds to support online hd viewing and 3d viewing etc!!!

Acceptable use policy applies

Thats a bit hard to read mate.

"3.2.1. Virgin Media does not place a limit on monthly network usage. However, in isolated cases (currently less than 0.1% of customers) where excessive network usage at busy times (9am to 9pm) is having a detrimental effect on other users, we may need to take appropriate action in accordance with the terms of this AUP to notify users of the impact they are having and require them to move some of their activity into the less busy period."

Its just a heads up, and wont affect the majority of people. Just posting the info I have.

Thats the way of the network mate. It will go unlimited again when they roll out 100mb speeds. LIke I said unless your hammering it, then I wouldn't worry, and this is just a heads up bud.

From what I understand they are just asking heavy users to move their big downloads to after 9pm. ????

As for HD viewing and 3D, my guess is that will be happening from VM own servers/network so no load on their traffic to internet. Like BBC iPlayer stuff which I believe is cached by VM and not coming off BBC servers.
