Which exchange?

If not Market 1, PN do 'no contract' for which they charge £2.50 pm extra over having a contract.

Bredon ADSLMax, ADSL2+ only. Market 1

To be honest prefer smaller independent suppliers

With no LLU there, makes no odds. It'll all be the same: BTw resold.

Anyone who has had TalkTalk on a BT exchamge would know that all ISP are not the same
To me it is all about size of pipe used by ISP and how it is filled. Overfill. like TalkTalk, and problems occur. The better ISPs manage pipe and increase size to ensure no overfill. This may mean extra cost to consumer but out weighs overfill option

Exactly! That's what I was getting at; you don't go with an LLU ISP at an exchange where they don't have LLU. Same with Sky Connect, O2 Access etc.

In my case even LLU makes 'Odds'. TT unbundled our still Market 1 exchange 20 months ago, then doorstepped the 2,500 properties twice offering 'Cheap' broadband, I assume without mentioning the contention rates. At the opposite side of my village from the exchange, my ISP seems to outperform all the rest with pings around 10, especially TT LLU, so I agree with the smaller ISP idea.

TT LLU ??? And doesn't it depend on purchased bandwidth?
