After years of living in flats and have limited broadband options, I am moving to a house served by Virgin Media and also where FTTP is available. I've reviewed the following options
On the FTTC side, I can get
50/300 from Zen for £59.99pcm (18m term)
50/300 from BT Ultrafast Fibre 250 for £49.99pcm (24m term)
50/330 from Fibre.net, 59.50pcm (12m term, static IP)
From Virgin, the options I'd consider are
Ultimate Umph - 36/536 internet, TV, phone, mobile SIM)) for £89pcm (12m term)
Fibre & Phone - 36/362 internet, phone, for £40pcm (12m term)
I am not fussed about landline but VM's M350 is cheaper with one.
I'd like static IP if possible but not that fussed.
If getting FTTP, I'd prefer to buy my own modem (I already have an Asus WiFi 6 router). Could anyone recommend a specific model? I see some ECI models on eBay quite cheap but I think they are VDSL modems and won't work with fibre... can anyone advise?
Would you recommend FTTP over VM for any specific reason?
The VM 500mbps product is locked behind the ultimate tier, but I'd consider this if the service were good as it'd be the cheapest way to get 500Mbps down.
Thanks in advance.
