Any opinions on which of the above ISPs is likely to have the best latency? (Gaming).
South Wales valleys uncongested broadband exchange, with only the above options (i.e. 3 LLU providers and of course, the standard BT Wholesale), nothing 'coming soon' (no FTTC, probably ever ), and i'm looking to get a 2nd ADSL2+ line installed. May get a dual WAN load balancing router if i can find one that'll work for me (and dedicate a line to gaming ), but am also playing with the idea of having a separate router for this line so i can game in peace while everyone else congests the other line. 2 different ISPs is absolutely fine, perhaps even preferred to reduce the chance of losing both lines at once.
Distance from the exchange currently allows a sync rate of 18Meg down / 1Meg up with TalkTalk LLU. Latency isn't the best (it's acceptable, but could be better), although will definitely be asking TT to turn off interleaving, if i can get their tech support to understand. Regardless, get a strong feeling that i may be better off with another ISP for the 2nd line / gaming...?
