It might be worth mentioning somewhere in the OP that larger ISPs often provide the more popular distros from their own servers.

I'm with Virgin, and they do it. When I was downloading from the Canonical website it was going at about 80kbps. Now from ubuntu.virginmedia.com it's hitting 1.07mbps. 8-)


That's cool. Wonder if there is a Sky one...?

Yes there is and I think it's now available on Virgin's cable service. There is also Sky One HD. Unfortunately there isn't a lot worth watching on either channel. :lol: :roll:

Sorry, I tried to resist but ultimately failed ;)
