Thanks again. 100GB is nowhere near suitable for my needs, so that's one option I have to rule out.
I'm guessing the C&W based service is inferior ... ?
I'm not sure which ISP the previous occupant used, but my connected BeBox reports the following:
Line Attenuation (Up/Down) [dB]: 6.5 / 15.0
SN Margin (Up/Down) [dB]: 6.0 / 12.0
Does that look promising?
I am on a c&w service with ADSL24, speed wise it is not great, but that is because I got a long cable between me and the exchange. But it is unlimited and no traffic management and also no profiling or line management system.
a mate of mine who lives a bit closer to the exchange than me gets 16 megabits on a c&w network
I am happy with the service, no major problems for over 12 months and it is away from Talk Talk.
Sky network is not too bad, the main problem is like Talk Talk it is fully unbundled, so you have to move your phone over tot hem as well, something which is not required for Cable and wireless.
