We're looking to switch broadband providers in the next few days and are looking for recommendations - anyone have any?
I would very much like to use O2 or Be as I've heard so many good things about them but we don't have LLU enabled in this area so are quite limited to the providers we can get.
We are currently on Orange who have been throttling our connection down to 512kbps from 6pm - 12pm every night for months. Before 6 and after 12, the speeds are fine (usually get around 600kbps on a line estimated to get 6.5mbps) but getting 50kbps during a time when most of the household use the internet isn't acceptable really.
We were looking at BT option 3 - anyone have this? It says "unlimited" downloads, but I've grown sceptical of such statements. Can't believe OFCOM still allow all these ISPs to use T&Cs and "fair usage policies" to get around actually giving their customers unlimited use and I'm willing to bet Bt have some sort of similar T&Cs...
We are by no means super heavy users. I might download a few GBs worth of TV programmes over a week and do a bit of online gaming and I'd like to not have to watch my usage as I would with an "x GB per month" package..
