Virgin Media's strategy encourages piracy
Am I alone in thinking that the current strategy followed by Virgin Media is encouraging illegal downloading of TV content? VM deny us high profile content (Sky Atlantic the obvious example) but give us the means to easily acquire it illegally with broadband speeds in excess of what any non-downloading citizen would require. Does anyone need 100mb download speeds if they don't indulge in content downloading, let alone the ridiculous 1.5gb currently being tested?
