    Your download speed looks grand to me, you will be on an "up to 7meg" package that up to is important you could be gettin 1 meg and still be within the contractual guidelines, i am on a 10 meg virgin package and i get between 8.9 and 9.6 meg

    As for your ping are you connecting wirelessly? Connecting wired for starters will help, what anti virus/security software are you using?

    Actually instead of me listin stuff have a look here

    Virgin is dreadful. When I had it mine was meant to be 'up to' 10 mb, I was lucky to get 3 mb for downloads. Not much else I can offer except my sympathies!
