Thanks for the great comments.
I've just (finally!) moved to the UK. I'm looking at living in areas like Hertford or similar, and it looks like that my only option for fast internet is cable (FTTC unavailble, or a tentative date in December 2011) and thus Virgin.
Are there any significant downsides (i guess if it is my only option then there aren't any!), or anything that I should be aware of?
I'll be mostly web-browsing and usenet-ting..... I have read the above comments on Usenet throttling.....
Also there seems to be some discrepancy between the Virgin checker and SamKnows? Is this usual?
