I'm moving house and trying to decide on my broadband connection. I am told the previous tenants in the place we are moving to had Virgin Media so I assume the connection will be relatively painless. I'm tempted by the 30MB or 60MB offering which works out quite competitive with no phone line.
We move in this coming weekend, and the place we'll be moving to is on the high street in Wimbledon Village, and after a quick search for reported problems, it seems as though some people in Wimbledon do suffer from very low speeds at peak times due to congestion. I'd like to know if other users in the area have any problems or not. All feedback is incredibly appreciated.
My main reasons for wanting to go with Virgin Media is that it means if I decide I want some form of TV package with the Sky channels, I can upgrade in the future. The speeds are better than regular ADSL (provided you get the advertised speeds). And also I'm hoping since we move in very soon, the activation times are faster than waiting for a FTTC activation. If I ordered the broadband today, what sort of time frame could I expect it to be activated in?
