my first post - please excuse any unintentional ignorance. I'm looking at changing my provider. Currently have a service with Virgin ADSL and through enquiries I've been told it's LLU at the local exchange, which is Market 3. I've read this is likely to be renting the C&W kit. Through SamKnows and all the availability checkers it seems I can get either BT21CN or LLU connection.
Most of the packages that are using the BT kit tell me I'll get 12mb downstream (same as I get currently), whereas most of the LLU options (Sky, C&W are enabled) are just giving an 'up to' value (16mb, 24mb).
I'm aware that speed is not the whole issue, and that I may still only get 12mb from an LLU service. I also know that my line conditions and the particular ISP handling my service contribute greatly to the whole broadband experience.
So, if I pick an ISP with a good customer service recommendation, and If I've got the choice of both options, is there any general consensus of the pros and cons of going with either?
Is there also anything particularly different if I swapped back to the BT product from the current LLU connection ? Lots of people seem to moan about the BT profiling, DLM etc.
thanks in advance
btw - I'm not on a particularly long line, current DS attentuation is 21db. My speeds are steady at 14000kbps and my ds sn margin is solid at 11db.
