I am wanting to change to a cheap phone and broadband deal. I'm currently on Madasafish, provided though BT I believe and Plusnet are doing a deal which is cheap for my area, and again I belive this is coming through BT. I've had a look at my exchange and Sky, Orange & Talk Talk have LLU. The BT wholesale info on the exchange is ADSL Max enabled.
Now my issue is I live really far away from the exchange so I have rubbish line speed. Would it be possible that I could get faster broadband from moving away from BT to one of the others? If so how do I check?
Talk Talk were round the other day and they reckon they can give me line speed 5x more than Plusnet reckon they can give me (1Mb plusnet, 5Mb TalkTalk). I'm not inclined to believe cold callers or Talk Talk, so how can I know if one ISP is faster than another? I would ideally like a cheaper deal than I'm on now (not difficult) but not Talk Talk because of their shocking customer service reviews, so maybe Sky would be an option for me? Obv if the Talk Talk line can give me 5x anyone else I'll go with them, but don't want to be tied into someone more expensive for a year than I can get elsewhere for the same speed
