New property is in a Virgin Media area, so I have the option of cable.
Pricewise, it's more than competitive, at £27 for 100mb (vs avg 67Mb FTTC), or £32 for 200mb.
I'm currently with SSE, and more than happy with them; truly unlimited in no caps, no throttling, and no port/traffic blocking.
Obviously, cable is shared, and 'speed' will vary according to other user's usage - but do Virgin have any limits to either throttling, traffic shaping or port-blocking?
Related Q. I use a BT modem to connect to ISP, with a PFSense box providing routing, firewall, DNS resolution/forwarding, etc. Can the Virgin router/modem be used in the same way (disable wifi and routing functions, use a [bridged] modem and my PFSense box as the router)?
