My contract with Aquiss expires next month and I am looking for advice as to which FTTC providers I should look at next. The reason for the move is that the peak allowance will not be enough as my brothers will be moving back home soon and the packages offered by Aquiss with the higher peak usage allowances are quite expensive. As the connection will be used for gaming then latency will be a big factor for me when choosing my new ISP.
Looking at the FTTC comparison spreadsheet the BT retail unlimited 'Infinity' package seems to fit the bill, priced at £28/ month with 'unlimited' downloads and unlimited landline calls.
Virgin's 100Meg service is now live in my area. I actually tried the 50Meg package for a month but latency was a big iffy at around 30-35 ms with a small amount of jitter. I currently get 23ms on FTTC with no jitter. If I was to move over to the 100Meg package would there be any improvement in latency or would it make no difference?
Any advice would be welcome!
