I'm new here and in desperate need to get a good broadband inside my house but the more I ask around the more confused i get . First of all, I dare mention the fact that my location is in Canterbury (If it makes any difference, similar to the mobile networks).
I've read a lot of the topics here and still am confused as hell. I need something like the title says, for a shared house, and would really like to have decent speed (b/n 4-8 mb REAL that doesn't have any peak times or be capped) because all 4 of us are students so we speak over VoIP services all day, download p2p from sites movies from our families and others (nothing illegal by all means) and finally every single one of us stays with youtube or other internet streaming site opened in the browser 24h/day.
Most important thing is not to have any download limit because i had some experiences in my 1st year with download limits and if you get to that point, you will stay the rest of the month with speeds under 100kb/s ). So that's a no-no. Besides that, if it makes any difference, all of us own laptops and we need something compatible with both macbooks and pc (just said there to clear out the fact that we won't connect through a direct link).
My budget would be somewhere around 20-25£/m and a contract would be best at 9 months (heard that virgin may do that but i'm having second thoughts because i've seen many complaints for the lousy services they offer), if not 9, 12 months is ok.
Also i have to mention the fact that i am already in the house so if i would appreciate it if you could also tell me how long will it take before the connection goes active (i saw that be and o2 take up to 2 weeks :| and that would be a nightmare from the stone age).
Thank you all in advance and will check the forum soon
