Many thanks for the quick response and info
Yes, I'd be keeping my 'land-line' telephone service and checking out prices on something like the 60 meg service, of course it's a better deal when bundled with their phone service.
I don't play games so that's not an issue, but I've just seen that their adverts say you can download as much as you like.... hmm... wonder if that's a sales pitch, or true?
Ok about not cancelling before the service is up and running. Again, my guess is that Sky would require 30 days notice for cancellation of the services so I guess it wouldn't be too bad to have a months overlap of the two services. As far as I can tell, the minimum contract for Virgin Media is 12 months.
I'll have a look around and see if I can get info on any possible congestion issues in our area. I regularly get about 6.5 megs broadband around here, because of the distance from our local exchange, so the prospect of anything like the speeds that Virgin advertise is very attractive
Thanks again for the info.
