My girlfriend and I are moving house in June (Cambridge address) and I'm looking around for the best broadband options. Unfortunately it is not in an area where Virgin can give us what we currently have (30Mb).
We are having to move over to Sky for our television so I got a quote from them and have some other speeds from varying suppliers below. We really want the fastest possible, so any ideas on options we have missed would be greatly appreciated
Sky £22 per month - between 2.6Mb and 7Mb
Virgin £30.98 per month - between 1.6Mb and 4.4Mb
Orange / EE not sure of the price - Their site estimates 3.5Mb
I think we are 1.2 miles away from the exchange.. but I'm not certain of this. Any way to confirm this and what implications it will have?
For the most part we both use our computers online at the same time. Browsing internet, emails, gaming (Diablo 3 and World of Warcraft mostly) and online poker (Full Tilt / Pokerstars etc). Maybe I'm worrying for nothing and the speeds will be fine and only really affect us when we download large files and game patches. But I'd really like to get the fastest we possibly can.
