which ISP


[link to this post]
 
Hi all
looking for some advice on choosing an ISP please.
Currently with Titan adsl and Im getting around 1.9 mb speed happy with the service but want cost cut . Currently £22 a month , I have to add I'm approx 3 miles from the exchange.
Just discovered through Sam Knows that the exchange has Talk Talk LLU and Sky/easynet LLU . should I consider either of these ? whats the deal with contention with these ISP's . Previously was with Virgin and come 4 oclock and everything would grind to an unbearable crawl.
Spoke to Plusnet rep via chat and they said this would be inevitable, could Plusnet be a choice? . I dont have this problem with Titan.
Any advice is much appreciated

Is that £22 plus the phone line rental, or does it include it? What download allowance have you got?

Please can you see if you can find and post your line stats from your router? See here for help.

It would be useful if you tell us the exchange.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet Extra Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 54.0/14.9Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Sky, TalkTalk, or Plusnet would be ok imo.
