I have signed up to BT and Sky and I am getting Sky broadband as it seems to be the cheapest I can get.
Now, after speaking with Sky they say I can only have the basic rate because my line is not capable of anything faster (this is a brand new building estate if this means anything) and therefore I just get the free net.
I'm a tad annoyed as 8mb would have been sufficient (i know i wouldn't have got the full speed). However, the speed is too slow for me and Virgin Media is not available.
Why don't Virgin seem to lay cable in new areas? It seems silly to me because I for one would have probbaly signed up to phone, TV and net and like others in my area they'll probably be on the lame ass speed as me and may want faster. Just seems to me that Virgin are losing out on potential customers.
Is there ANYWAY to get a faster speed? Sky tell me im connected to the closest exchange.
Thanks to anyone that may be able to help?
