Chuckoir, you need to move up North or move providers.

Move up North? I'd rather die!

To be fair, I'm getting switched over to Sky on Monday, saving myself a small fortune every month in the process. With it beig the same line, however, I doubt I'll see an increase in speed.

Between 4.9 and 9.2 Mbps Sky said, so pretty much what I have now. Oh well, the extra 20 (!) I'm saving by leaving BT can go towards a new MBP I've been hankering after!

Ha Ha....we've got the BBC now as well!

I was thinking about Sky myself as well but don't they want to own your phone line rental as well? You must let me know how you get on.

The biggies are all the same in my opinion, operating a rigged market with myriad tariffs; if's, buts and maybe's about download speed, and deliberately poor email support because they want you to ring their premium rate tech support line.

That's another rant out of the way.

Yeah, Sky have the line rental but it's the same ppm as BT. Supposed to be switching tomorrow so fingers crossed. 2 reasons for switching, price has dropped from 41pm to 21.50pm, and with Sky I will have unlimited downloads - which was limited to 40gb with BT. Hoping it's not too good to be true.

Nbrowser-that's incredible! Links must load before you've even clicked on them!

If that's including line rental then that's good. I hope that the deal does what it says on the tin because I am tempted. My package is 17 Unlimited with static IP (Pipex/Tiscali/Talk Talk!) and the line rental is with BT (what's that about 12 + I'm on option 3 which bumps it up to about 20 +vat).

It's just the second in line connection speed offered by my provider, I'm on the 100Mbps package, they also have a 250Mbps package.......figured 100 was good enough, although they are also doing network upgrades so at some point this upcoming summer (Canada) my upload will double from 5 to 10.....I hope.

This is truly humbling nbrowser. If you don't mind me asking, is this on Fibre Optic and how many of your hard earned bucks do you spend to get it?

Our ISPs (like the Gas and Electricity companies) like to divide things into small fractions and furnish us with lots of confusing tariffs. Great hullabaloo accompanies a 'major' upgrade of 5mb speed extra (no guarantees of course), just pay an extra tenner.

My guess is a small fortune. The major telcos don't offer plans like that (at least in this part of the country). Rogers for instance has a 50mbps plan for $100/mo. If it isn't a small fortune, I might have to move!

You know, in the big scheme of things, your price is not a million miles away from our packages..20GBP dearer nonetheless for all those mbps. I would hazard that all the multi-national media corps are rigging the market.

Thankfully though the company Shaw Cable, knows that someone with that kind of bandwidth is gonna share it on a LAN at home, hopefully by tomorrrow night I'll have my lil Mac Mini wired up to the LAN instead of using it's built in G wireless, so it can experience that speed when was done on my main Windows machine which is wired to the main router then to the modem via gigabit connections.
