I have TalkTalk now, and I can get out of my contract this week. Usually it works as promised, with dowload speeds of about 7MBit which isn't quite the 8 advertized, but is okay. That said, every couple of months (or more sometimes) it goes wonky for a night or two, and I get absolutely terrible speeds with dropped connections (really great when you are in a major online backgammon tournament match). I think it's a problem with the lines, but BT never got it sorted and neither has TalkTalk. I'd really like to get away from using ADSL, but mobile broadband rates all seem to be capped and are rather high. Fibre would seem to be the only other option, and that would leave Virgin as the only player. I'm in London (Maida Vale) and am wondering what you guys think? Virgin now claims to be unlimited, and 10Mb most of the time would be just fine by me. I'd switch off my phone line altogether and use Skype for phone service. Any opinions? Anybody who can think of any other options? I browse heavily. Download maybe 10 movies a month from iTunes. Don't do P2P. Upload website refreshes frequently. I am a pretty heavy user, but nothing like somebody who downloads their music and video through torrents.
