I've been with O2 for some years now, but have decided I don't want to fall into the black hole that is Sky, now that they have taken over the O2 broadband. I have literally had no problems with O2 for the past 4-5 years, except a brief period of disconnects due to a neighbour's faulty Skybox blasting radiowaves up and down the street late last year, now resolved.
I'm seriously considering PlusNet, since I want a monthly rolling service, I want to keep BT for landline, and want unlimited broadband (no need for fibre as yet), and the ability to use my own router.
My internet usage consists of standard web browsing, youtube and iplayer video streaming, the occasional Skype video chat (once a week or so), and gaming. I need a service that provides consistent download speeds for video streaming, Steam game patches and game purchase downloads once in every 6 months, and good pings for multiplayer gaming.
How is PlusNet for these things, and if there are any people here who have switched over from O2, how does the PlusNet service compare to O2?
Thanks so much for any help and advice,
