o I was asking for a good isp cheap


A broadband connection will be as good as the line to your property and the network beyond it, the only difference between provider is that some will have extra features (like BT WiFi) and some might have better infrastructure at their end...

Typically, the more you pay the better the service quality should be and the better the customer service will be...

No ones every gone on the run around for a few quid but for triple that they might starting jumping through hoops...

You best bet might be BT.. specially as they are doing 12 month contracts currently and seem to have the best of all worlds in the broadband market...

BT Home Hub 5 (Decent bit of kit with dual band technology)
Access to BT WiFI Hotspots (at the cost of hosting a public hotspot from your address which will have little to no affect on your service)
BT Sport Online or Sky TV
Mobile Offers
12 months contracts.

Gave me a chuckle when you posted that, but didn't need a reply. I just thought I'd say so, whilst commenting on the fact the poster of it "relative" now seems to have completely lost the plot.

Not helping the OP and just throwing troll-type insults at both of us smile.

The BT Wholesale estimates (they aren't line stats) you posted in the OP look fine.

However, seeing as this is in the BT forum it would be an idea to say roughly where you are, particularly which exchange, and hope someone in that area on Infinity can tell you their latency/ping times and general gaming performance. That's far more important than the sync speed and I believe on Infinity it can vary between excellent and lousy, depending on where you are.
