I told you I was working base 10 for ease because I was on my phone. 

 

The only actual error I made there was:
 

That was a genuine mistake, as said, walking around town.

 

Like said many times, we was arguing the same topic with the same conclusion, a bit isn't a byte. Now we've all had that network 101, does any other person want to come in and claim the same thing while they can?

 

You entire posts were mistakes actually, also for future reference you use these symbols > < like this:

 

Bigger > Smaller

Smaller < Bigger

 

The pointy side indicates 'less than' the open two-point bit indicates 'greater than'.

 

When you do *something* < > *something* or > < they become pointless.

 

Now onto the topic, this rumor is ridiculous. You will not get faster internet if you own a PlayStation.

This has got to be the most Cringe worthy thread i've read on here in months...The amount of "your wrong, no your wrong, no your wrong" and "i know what im talking about because i went Uni HURR DURR" ...It's depressing and frankly embarrassing.

 

On topic - I'd never touch VM with a 10 ft pole, I suppose it's the old "once bitten twice shy" mentality, but the fact that a big companies network was so shoddy for such a long time compared to small companies makes me think they don't really care about the product, just profits. ( Now i know that's the majority of business, but i still like to feel the company cares about it's own products).

 

BT Infinity here for about 3-4 months so far and i've been really impressed at ping times/dl speeds and reliability. I just hope BT can keep up with VM on speeds but hopefully don't drop their reliability to the same.

On a VM business line, we'd lose connectivity every so often for between 30 minutes and a few days, and their response was always 'it will be fixed soon'. Emailing their support took OVER TWO WEEKS to ever get a reply, and they were so clueless it was embarrising, not to mention bugs with the router and it's shoddy 'firewall' feature you can't turn off (if one host doesn't reply to a DHCP request properly or a collision occurs, GREAT your router is completely frozen until the power is cycled!), not to mention just suddenly applying traffic filtering and management (these were not in the original T&C when we got the package but they refused to look into it or remove it).

Switched to BT and the worst that happens is every 2 or 3 months the internet line goes down for about 20 seconds and reconnects getting a different IP which, whilst annoying, is pretty excellent really.

 

I highly doubt VM could get 1Gbps speeds, we had a problem with them years ago and the engineer had to come out and remove and install a new copper cable because the one that was in was bent a bit 'too far' round a corner and caused a large loss in signal (we weren't able to get even 10Mbps with it...)

 

Anyway, enough off topic posting.

Someones obviously never coded if you're debating what '<>' means. Google it. I'll give you a hint, its the same as '!='.

 

People get so butthurt on here, I made points relevant to the thread and all people try to do is get one up on the other trying to prove they have an ounce of relevant knowledge. The internet.

Not debating, telling you what it means.

 

Your points are irrelevant when you have no idea what you are talking about.

Butthurt much, <> is a common "doesn't equal" operator.

 

My points are irrelevant? I'm stating how the core infrastructure of the UK can potentially handle the Gigabit internet connections which could be given to people. Like people have said, the only constraints are at the exchange level. I'm out of here, this threads turned into e-penis sizing.
