Am moving house next month, so need to get a new ISP.
Ages ago, had o2 LEGACY broadband, so was able to download & play online games (say Call of Duty which uses peer to peer protocol).
Service was good, ran around 4.5mb for my area, all was good
Moved in with my partner, switched her from BT to o2 (Oct 2010), didn't realise/wasn't told that 'o2' no longer provided real broadband, and that there 'All-Rounder' package was a 24/7 rubbish throttled connection.
So since October, trying to download anything is hit and miss, watching 'iplayer' through the PS3 on the telly sucks (buffers, pixelated), and trying to play Call of Duty MW2 is beyond a joke. o2 said there traffic management system is [censored], nothing they can do!
So.... moving to a new area which states 1.7km from exchange (am guessing cable length is around 3.5 miles).. The exchange (http://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange/SWLLD ) caters for Sky / Orange / o2 / craptalk and BT.
I want to play online games without being routed to foreign destinations, i want to download stuff after midnight, and the wife wants to watch eastenders on iplayer through the PS3 before midnight, so can anyone recommend who to use ??? i'd be looking at there phone service too i think.... was looking to spend max £25 per month for the line + BB
