    I think they should keep WoW traffic classed as low-priority

    Virgin could then claim to be saviours of many teenagers lives who can come back to living in the real world!

    Another classic ISP moment, trying to stop you using the unlimited service you pay for once again. Obviously you're not going to leak details of your latest update when if you do 13 million people might get pissed off and leave.

    When I had virgin they were absolutely dog in terms of ping for CS 1.6 as well. Truly awful ISP.

    On a side note do ISPs still use interleaving!?

    Adsl2+ ones do like BE, 02 etc.

    Also im am with Virgin Media and get amazing pings on games, i am on 20mb, only time i ever have any problems is during mass peak where i loss a little bit, and thats mainly due to people using really heavy traffic programs on what is simple a hacked up british network.
