paying £37 a month with vivacity at the moment with phone rental need a good isp for gaming and some p2p and do all isp now block some sites? cheers for any advice


Not quite sure why some people are being silly and complaining about what forum this is posted in; it's quite easy to miss the Which ISP? (Residential) category.

I'd recommend BT; when the line works, their throughput on FTTC is typically very good. I get full throughput on my 80/20 line 24/7 most of the time. Speedtest results for my 80/20 connection

If you ever need support, go on their forums and post there; it's easier than phoning up their useless support.

You also get freebies such as Openreach WiFi access. And most ISPs do blocks sites as they have to by court order, but there are ways and means to get by this that I won't mention as it will likely be deleted.

I've heard some decent things about Zen but they are not very cheap. I've had friends move AWAY from PlusNet due to issues with throughput & reliability and their support being useless to them.

The only problem you may have with BT is their latency can be slightly higher than the more expensive ISPs due to poor routing. This is only 5-7ms more in most cases though.

I think you mean BT Openzone, which is now BT Wifi? This is provided by BT not Openreach.
