Looking for best ADSL provider


[link to this post]
 
Hey, guys! I just moved to a new place 2 days ago and have been using Virgin broadband for almost a year… but sadly, we don't have any fibre optic options in the new area.

Could you recommend me what's the best ADSL provider for gaming and streaming purposes?


Thanks!

Hi there,

sadly the answer to your question isn't straight forward, you need to establish some stuff to filter the answer, roughly how much data do you use a month, do you want a static IP, is UK based support an essential, etc, etc .... and I guess most important, what choices do the checkers state are open for you to order at your new address ?

Thanks for the details,

So the checkers say:
WBC ADSL 2+ Up to 3 -- 2.5 to 6.5 Available
ADSL Max Up to 3 -- 2 to 5.5 Available

Since we're going to use it for streaming and gaming, unlimited data would be great. I would like to have a good customer service, I guess being in the UK is better.

Use the BTw checker to see what is available from the exchange to your property:-

Yes you did. I think he may have meant to give you this link. Easiest is that you just tell us the exchange though, and we'll look it up ourselves smile. The exchange was given on the line above the table that gave you those figures.

Some very odd names in that list, most of which I would not touch with a bargepole.

Use the Ginp Formula to determine if your vdsl2 connection is with or without G.INP.
Divide your IP Profile by your Sync Speed and the answer is 0.9669 (with) or 0.9679 (without)

Indeed I agree, I'm quite happy sticking with Plusnet for ADSL as have had very little issues with the actual connection and line speed, however phoning CS can be time consuming unless you phone first thing in the morning at the start of their shift.
Next choice for ISP would be BT since the exchange is still 20CN.
