    I'm guessing BT Infinity is not an option either?
    Some places in the UK - especially rural areas - still suffer with very bad connection speeds.

    I was told I could only have 2.5MB connection then discovered my exchange was fibre enabled even though not advertised (some ISP's are in the dark - I was told several times NO FIBRE )

    I Was lucky enough to get the full 80/20 fibre

    Good luck

    When I moved a few years ago, having VM available was one of the main reason I chose where I am now over the other place I was considering.
    As soon as I found out there was no VM in the other one the decision was made - I cannot do without fast internet.

    Just get the fast ADSL for £30 a month - it's hardly extortionate and you'd spend that down the pub in a couple of hours with your mates.

    Don't think I want to drink where you drink if £30 only lasts a couple of hours

    Yeah bb, I sit there on my own and spend £30 while crying into my beer alone lol
    I'm talking about doing rounds, £20 a round easy with a few mates, over a few hours.

    Smoke 20 less cigs a week, eat one less mcdonalds/kfc/takeaway... get healthy while paying for the new internet.

    shit me, what virgin deal is that? I seem to get fucking 10meg at best and I'm being charged £27 squids (cabled too). Do you have to request upgrades from virgin?
