New home - BT or Orange


[link to this post]
 
Hi Folks,

I'm going to be moving home in a weeks time, and it appears that the local exchange in my new town of Henley-in-Arden has no LLU operator presence.

http://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange/CMHEN

I'm ideally looking for a broadband connection with no download limits, and after talking to BT, Sky, Orange, Virgin and O2 have narrowed it down to BT and Orange.

For the unlimited package Orange is approximately £13 cheaper per month than BT. However, are there likely to be any speed differences between the two? Also, does anyone have any experience on the stability of both providers and can offer a comparison?

I'm pretty much clueless when it comes to broadband tech, so any advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
James

Hi James, Henley-in-Arden not far from me, your broadband speed with BT and Orange would be the same as your exchange has only 8Meg Max available.

I note the broadband usage allowance with BT 10Gig per month and Orange is unlimited.

For the Orange landline telephone, you notice no difference to with BT only you just pay Orange.

Orange WBC 20 Meg. Sync 11864 kbps Downstream, 1189 kbps Upstream.

Hi E7er,

Thanks for the info! After some shopping around last night I finally went with Orange. It was hard to pass up being £13 cheaper per month for an unlimited package, plus the Quidco deal for 3 months free, £150 cashback and £20 in HMV vouchers.

It's good to hear there won't be any difference in speed or landlane quality.

Cheers,
James
