Anyone using Virgin as their ISP?

It's time for you to jump ship. According to this article, Virgin have openly admitted that they're going to start throttling your traffic unless the websites you use cough up money. I hope I don't need to explain why this is bad.

WTF?
I'm sure some watchdog will have something to say about that.

Possibly only if they have a clue. After all, Virgin are saying that they're going to give more bandwidth to those sites that pay, so on the surface it doesn't sound so bad...but are omitting that to do so that means that every other site would get less bandwidth.

Thanks for that Chris. Not with Virgin, but it start's an worrying start against the principle of the net.
