I just want clarification from a customer, as BT tell me they only throttle to 2mb for the likes of gaming.

I wouldnt reccommend BT for broadband at all! I HAVE to use it because my dad works for them! Mine seems ok but as soon as someone else starts using the net, the lag starts to appear on the PS3, I would avoid BT broadband, and if you do choose it, don't use the BT Home Hub, get another quicker router.

We got Option 3 and use the BT Home Hub,it's the older white ones,the newer customers get black ones now and they supposed to be better. My hub is down in kitchen which is on another floor to my living room computer,got it wireless through a USB adaptor thingy,our PS3 picks up fine and my partner who mainly plays online,no problems,he plays Fifa amongst other games and find we no lag.
Many times checked out Broadband with various checks online and we usually get between 5-6MB.Nt sure what the gaming running at but the games we've played been fine.

You going get mixed answers for what you asked I think.

its unlimited i am going for, i know they throttle p2p but they told me gaming, if ever throttled, is only down to 2mb. which is plenty for gaming. beats the half mb im stuck with.
