New ISP


[link to this post]
 
I'm looking for an ISP. Here's what I am looking for:

Annex M (Preferably, Up to 1.2 Upload if not Annex M)
Fastpath
The less throttling the better (Preferably an ISP that doesn't throttle at all)
Preferably an ISP that offers up to 24Mbps instead of up to 20Mbps (I can sync close to 21Mbps)

I've noticed they offer Annex M on Business packages, but I don't currently have a home business, does this matter?

ISP: I can choose from:
TalkTalk (CPW) - ADSL2+
BT - ADSL2+
Sky LLU - ADSL2+

Thanks

Sky as far as I know don't use/offer Annex M.

Talk Talk Business do, but not sure about Talk Talk (for home use).

BT Wholesale do also and you'll find a few providers being able to offer this also.

I know, I would love to have BE, I'm thinking of giving IDNet a go, they offer up to 1.4Mbps up, I just need to see if they offer fastpath, one problem though when I run a phone check it says they can only offer me the up to 8Mbps package. Sam Knows & the BT wholesale checker say that my exchange has ADSL2+.

For Postcode XXX XXX

Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial check on your postcode indicates that your line should be able to have an ADSL broadband service that provides a fixed line speed up to 2Mbps.

Our check also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 7.5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 6.5Mbps and 8Mbps.

Our check also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL2+ broadband line speed of 17Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 10Mbps and 19.5Mbps.

Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed between 14.3 to 40 Mbps and upstream line speed between 5.6 to 13.2 Mbps.

The actual stable line speed supportable will be determined during the first 10 days of use. This speed may change over time, to ensure line stability is maintained.

Thank you for your interest.

Please note that postcode and address check results are indicative only. Most accurate results can be obtained from a telephone number check.

Wouldn't FTTC meet your needs? Try using your phone number in that checker.

BT isn't installing Infinity untill 2012, so no, that's not an option.

Even then you won't be able to get Infinity as they only supply that where the estimate is 15Mbps+, unless they change their rule, but you will be able to get other FTTC, see my list on this page.

However for now I see no reason why IDNet can't offer you ADSL2+, did you use their checker on this page?
