2 Year old connection, No Landline Trouble.


[link to this post]
 
I have had a virgin media connection (cable i beleive) for the past two years, it was at the time advertised as an 2MB broadband connection, with Limited downloads, it was originally around 18 pounds and over the years has risen to 21.50.

My question is complicated as it deals with multiple angles.

I bought a line rental for my landline, for it to be activated, but it has since been deactivated, and i am now looking for a cheaper, faster connection.

If i still use the Cable Connection will it slow my connection.
Why is it i still receive a connection after a year and a half of my Landline Deactivation.
Do i need to buy a new line rental and activation - and / or - new Broadband Cabling Installation.

Could you indicate your exchange? See http://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange_search

Knowing your exchange shows the options available to you.

Do you have a fixed line phone at the moment? Is it a Virgin or BT line?

Have a look at Sky LLU and Be LLU. Both should offer speeds of 15 Mbps+ on ADSL over your BT phone line.

Unlikely to be Cable if it's a 2 Megabit (2 Mb) connection, if that's what you meant to write.
