Virgin Media don't like customers, or at least customers with diverse interests, or at the very least customers that don't surf exclusively on Virgin's websites. Well, it would seem like that anyway, as in Neil Berkett's latest statement, he warned that public service broadcasters who choose not to pay Virgin for faster access to Virgin's subscriber base would end up in "bus lanes", effectively having their content delivered to consumers at a lower speed.
This is of course mostly bad news for the subscribers themselves, as many large content providers, like YouTube, Facebook, World of Warcraft or other popular online resources probably won't pay this mob-like "speed insurance". In the end, only the users will suffer. Seeing as it is general "Internet access" to content that Berkett is talking about, there is nothing that makes users of X-Box or any other online console service safe.
