absolutely agree!! I'm waiting for the written confirmation from them and will be calling them again tonight to chase
The connection speed
will be fine. The speed stuff comes down the line is a different matter altogether.
There are three well-known (here) extremely bad products on ADSL, which is all you can get. O2 Access which will die soon if it hasn't already now Sky have taken them over, whatever TalkTalk's "out of area" product is called, and Sky Connect.
I strongly advise against it, and the "connection speed" get-out is useless to you as there is unlikely to be anything wrong with that.
As has been said, an important factor is the capacity the ISP rents from BT Wholesale on connections that use that. Sky Connect does. Unlike Sky LLU which is an excellent product but not available to you. The capacity per customer the three I listed rent from BT Wholesale is clearly way below most other ISPs and the throughput speed can be dire as a result.
I suggest you should be looking at BT itself, PlusNet, or one of the smaller ISPs such as Aquiss, vivaciti or xilo/uno, depending on your budget and download allowance needs. Note that the banner prices on PlusNet do not apply at your exchange, you need to get to their "Market 1" pricing which is considerably higher but still competitive with the others.
