Sky BB VS Vrgin Media

Hi People,

Am deciding where to shift my BB and phoneline connection, Sky have offered me a good deal and say I am very near the telephone exchange so will get top speeds?

Virgin Media on the other hand have given me a good deal but its slightly expensive than Sky.

But would rather have a reliable fast connection.

What do you people think? Sky any good? Just thought Cable services are more reliable?

Cheers

lol! True mate.

But the thing is the BB service has been pretty reliable to be honest. But have never tried Sky and they are telling me I should get good speeds with them as well....So unsure lol

If you can get digital connection, Virgin is faster, I pay for 20Mb and get 19.8 on all speed checks. Just saying.

sam knows exchange checker, bung in your town to see if $ky LLU is available and how far you are from it.

edit** 1 mile from exchange and was syching at 16+meg and just checked my router stats there and now at 14.6meg, phone call to $ky methinks.

have a look at your router stats and compare them to here to give a rough guesstimation to your expected speeds.

Unless you download from newsgroups, then they limit you to stupid speeds, and by stupid I mean 56k speeds at times.

OP if you down't download from newsgroups/torrents then Virgin cable broadband is the best, if you do I would look elsewhere.
