Basically if you're on a small exchange with no LLU options, then it's likely you're going to suffer slow peak times whatever your ISP.
The government goes on about getting at least 2Mb broadband to smaller areas by a certain date, but they just mean synch speeds. I reckon it'll be years before rural areas actually manage decent speeds at peak times
, whilst more and more people in urban areas are happily enjoying speeds of 8Mb or more, even at peak periods.
Just another example of the gap between rural and urban areas.
PS. It makes me laugh when people on DigitalSpy complain about their broadband speed dropping from 16Mb to 12Mb... and they're paying half of what non-LLU users pay...
