lots of good reports, value for money.

They do throttle P2P during peak hours though

Uh uh!

BT Infinity has throttled P2P.

Most or all of AAISP, ADSL24, Aquiss, IDNet, Newnet, Sky, Titan, Vivaciti, Xilo, Zen do not.

You too, huh?

I live down the road from you, Kings Norton B38 and I've had a never-ending dialogue with Virgin Media over the quality of my Internet connection. They upgraded me to a 100Mbps service, for less money than I was paying on the 30Mbps service, but the performance is atrocious. It is purely an over utilization issue. Yet, Virgin Media keep telling me that there is a 'fault', the name of which and date of repair, change every time I speak with them. wink

I've attached a link to yesterdays thinkbroadband Broadband Quality Meter graph for your delectation. It will carry the title of, 'Yesterday - A typical day in the life of my Virgin Media Internet connection...' A bit of a long-winded title, but worth a quick read nonetheless. smile

I've just ordered Plusnet and have the phone line in operation, and have a broadband activation date of June 7th.

Sadly, I do not have the Infinity option, as my local exchange isn't in any future plans for upgrade to FTTC. (Exchange: Kings Norton - CMKING)

I wish you luck in your quest to find a "...fast, stable, unlimited download..." Internet connection!
