There are a number of factors that affect BB speed. Distance from the exchange being the main, though internal wiring can affect it, especially if it's low grade. ISP choice shouldn't make a major difference here.

If it's available - and the roll-out is increasing - comes with much higher upload speeds, upto 10mb/s and costs the same as standard broadband.

If you are a BT Broadband user, then this

can be ordered free, with £2.00 p&p.

>> What really upsets me is the upload speed! If you can get 10mb/s download then, all things been equal, it should be the same for uploads. It's the reason I don't bother with Virgin, BT or sky. 

You on ADSL?  That's what the A stands for....

I'm not referring to what I'm on, but the Fiber Optics they are trying to flog me. If they allowed me to upload faster then I might be interested, but I'm not paying extra for the same upload speed.  :(

We changed to PlusNet recently - seem to be getting a good service:


Seem to be getting similar results at all times of the day. Far better than I was getting on both Sky and Virgin before.
