I'll get right to it, sorry this might be a long post, but bear with me.
In an ideal world I would get Be broadband, or O2, purely because of past experience, their customer support is decent (compared to the competition) and, as far as I know, their FUP is not as horrible as the rest (see http://www.kitz.co.uk/isp/caps.htm
When I contacted Be they said the exchange was full, which I suppose means they have no more lines on my exchange, or something. O2 claims they don't cover my area, which I am assuming is the same issue as Be since they are on the same infrastructure?
Virgin media doesn't cover my area either. Not that I wanted them that much, but I was starting to get desperate.
My exchange is LSWAN
btw. So that leaves me with the following:
The rest of the ISPs on the exchange, I wouldn't bother with, unless someone here thinks otherwise.
I am not sure which is the better, we don't do P2P, so I don't care about that being throttled that much. I do
care about streaming video and audio though. Also, I read that Sky takes ages to set up, so I'm leaning towards BT, but I am not sure this is a good move. I already have a phone line from them. Whichever I end up picking I'll end up getting an "unlimited" package.
Does anyone have any experience with BT or Sky they can share? Or any general advice on how to move forward when the exchange is full, whatever that may mean?
Thank you all in advance.
