Re: SKY vs VM for gaming

i nearly forgot to reply lol i was too busy gaming i cant be any more honest virgin give you the speeds for browsing but as soon as gaming or any thing p2p is concerned its useless and who needs 100mb for browsing lol i just got a new hp envy sleekbook with an amd a6 and it loads pages straight away on sky plus the little difference from peak and non peak is good because you dont have to adapt to drastic measures its a constant good connection my kd on cod has gone from 2.30 and i have got it to 2.90 and its still climbing and i havent had to mess about with the router settings :smileywink:
