              What speed internet do you get .

For comparison, in Marple Bridge am on their "Large" deal, getting 9784Kbps download, 935Kbps upload, according to http://www.broadbandspeedchecker.co.uk/

were on the medium deal, which should be 5mb/s. However I get a max of 1.1mb/s download, and I Dread to think what the upload is...

I've heard some shockers about BT over the last few years and, in my experience, there are times when you need to either reset the modem/router, turn it off or totally unplug it.

TBH I've never heard many horror stories about Virgin so it couldn't hurt to make in depth enquiries.

Hope that helps.

I've been with Virgin Media for over 12 years, never had any problems. I pay about £60 per month for L.TV XL. broadband and telephone XL  Just added sky sports back on for the football season so an extra £22.50.

My internet has been freezing alot lately. We pay about just under £60 a month for broadband, XL TV package. We also get cheap mobile deals with them. Overall have been happy but the call centre can be a shocker!!

Another thing to add to the mix. I use Virgin and if connected by ethernet I get virtually 10 Mb, but if using a wireless connection it varies with distance and gets down 0.5 Mb in one part of the house.
