If IPs met their current advertised 'up to' speeds, the majority would find 100Mbps overkill. I would suggest the vast majority choose their package on cost, volume and maximum speed in that order.

With only the one parameter to judge it on it is very difficult to give the right assessment. I would probably pay £25 a month if it gave a reasonable download allowance, good upload speeds and no shaping at busy times. What I don't want is the equivalent of a Ferrari that will do 200mph but has to stop at every filling station on the motorway. I currently get a constant 7Mbps which is fast enough for virtually everything that I need and sufficient download allowance that I rarely exceed it, and all for £17 a month, so why change?

The question is 'how much would you pay', ie: how much is it worth to you. Of course, we could ask: 'would you take 100Mbps broadband if it was free', but I rather suspect the answer is plain!

Am I missing a bigger picture here? Why would 62% of you (as of this post) want to pay any more than the least expensive option. Whose side are you on?

I dont do much downloading(updates to windows are getting most of my monthly cap)and my severely unstable connection is free(thus proving I get what I pay for)so I have no need of higher than 5Mbs.I have often wondered what a really fast connection would be like,but here in rural nuclear dustbin land with no cable/fibre-optics and the prospect of the UK's version of 4G pending,I'll just have to continue wondering.Besides which,most of the really fast connections I've seen advertised are restrictive with a meagre cap.

If they would guarantee to deliver more than 3MB, I might even consider offering a price

£25 to £30 would be acceptable.

Would much prefer to see the whole country get a fully stable connection of say 20Mpbs first though! still on 2Mpbs here in the sticks, runs very haphazard speeds.

OpenReach announce 330 Mbps download / 20 or 30 Mbps upload.

http://www.thinkbroadband.com/news/5236-pricing-for-openreach-330-mbps-service-announced.html

Standard price £25/month. Intro offer £15/month.

Knocks the bottom out of the £17.99 for 5 Mbps offerings.

I've just had mine upgraded for free from 10mb to 20mb. 1mb is sufficient for my needs, so I wouldn't pay for anymore than the basic Virgin service costs.

I pay around £30 a month for 100 with VM which I get. I get unlimited downloads, if I were to use torrents which I never do I could get my speed capped at peak times if I exceeded a set limit for that day, I've never had my speed capped. I'm quite happy to pay the amount I do & personally consider it money well spent.

Spot on canarieslover and john bunyan, my thoughts exactly.

Price would be very dependent on download limit rather than ultimate speed. What's the point of having that sort of speed if you can exceed your limit in a few hours?

My 9 - 10 Mbps woks fine for the things I need - including iPlayer. Unless you expect to use it for a lot of HD video, I do not know why such high speeds are needed. They should concentrate on a more universal move to 10Mpbs in all locations. I would pay a bit more, say £20 - £25
