I got an email from them the other day saying that they had upgraded my broadband (FOC) to 150Mbps. I was mystified, as I recalled them raising it to that about a year back so went and ran an Ookla speed test on them. It came back at 220mbps.
I haven't noticed much difference since it was raised to about 30Mbps. The perceived speed of web surfing is governed by the latency of the servers I think. It makes little difference to the user if the page loads in 10 or 1 millisecond, if you've had to wait for maybe half a second for it to respond.
What I have noticed, shortly after these FOC increases, that there is purely coincidental price increase! I normally get onto them and ask for the speed to be reduced to what it was and no price increase. This they are curiously reluctant to do, but generally one can reduce the amount of the proposed price increase by haggling. On one or two occasions, they have agreed to give me a further speed increase in lieu of a price reduction. It is certainly worth haggling with them.
