Hi everyone. I am looking for some help choosing an ISP. We don't currently have home broadband (other than via 3G).
We are in West Ealing, London and our exchange details are here: Perivale exchange
It looks like we have plenty of choice - a little too much in fact.
We have a BT line fitted but are out of any minimum contract periods. BT Infinity is available, as is Virgin. BT speed estimates are 18Mb on ADSL2+ and 40Mb via FTTC.
We have a very old master socket without the split faceplate and it has a hard-wired extension from it. Would this prevent us getting broadband or limit the speed?
Want broadband for general web access, email, working from home etc. Would use it during the day as well as evenings. Would like to be able to access iPlayer etc and maybe some of the film streaming services. Not interested in gaming.
Have no idea how much data allowance we would need - would appreciate guidance here.
Don't want to spend a fortune but equally don't need to go for the cheapest possible option.
Would appreciate any guidance you can give.
