virgins really good mate, was with em for a year. never had no problems. but yeah, you do pay for it.

i think if your with o2 you can get a dirt cheap 10mb connection with them.

currently with orange internets. don't do it.

I have moved back in the parents for the time being to save moolah so no idea how much it is haha

I think it's partly because of the wanky router we use too

i was paying for 20mb but was only ever getting ten so i complained and got an upgraded router and speed. Threats of leaving for sky and cheaper package usually does the ttrick.

In my opinion Virgin are pretty much the best broadband provider, but def not the cheapest!

If you phone to saying you are leaving them you can usually get some wicked deals! Also keep in mind they are currently in the process of doubling everyone's broadband speed for free.

i was gunna go for virgin but apparently my area ain't wired up for their do das so i've gone with Sky instead. Got the whole deal, TV, phone & internet.

Pain in the arse trying to cancel your order though. Was on the phone for an hour and still didn't know if i had cancelled or not. Long.
