After writing a small essay in my earlier post, I then go back and check the samknows website to find Sky/easynet have recently set up kit in my local exchange (SWUWN Llanwern), thus I'm not restricted to BT Wholesale as a supplier..
I'm looking for a replacement for my O2 access package (which is a leftover from a recent house move) which as well as being expensive, suffers massive drops in peak time speed. Whilst the synch is at 2 - 2.5Mbps evening DL speeds drop to 100kbps and less quite often.
Would moving onto some LLU hardware help alleviate this problem?
Which other ISPs use sky/easynet (other than Sky), if any?
My intended usage (I'm renovating the house ATM) would be moderate: gaming, internet tv, sporadic P2P, and possibly hosting.
We're currently not signed up with Sky, but considering getting Sky+ when the work is done and we unpack the telly - I guess this would have an effect on the deal they'd offer.
