So you're British then?

It all depends on your needs. Do you want something with all the frills and extras, or just a basic Internet connection?

My ISP is O2 and I get a discount on the broadband bill because my cell phone is provided by them too. I have the premium package with them and fortunately for me, it connects faster than advertised. It's just Internet only though, but that's all I need. BT also offer standard no frills DSL packages, but I've seen a bunch of complaints about prolonged outages etc for that service.

Sky broadband offers more inclusive features but apparently has a low 40GB cap. Virgin media also offers a lot of services with its Internet, it is also more generous with bandwidth and speed.

BT do offer a new package though, BT Infinity, or something like that. It's fiber optic, so it should very fast. I haven't looked too much into it personally, nor tried it. So I can't comment on it.

If you have Sky go with them never had a cap when i was with them might be different now.
BE are very highly rated by users & do not have a cap or use bandwidth throttling.

BT do offer a new package though, BT Infinity, or something like that. It's fiber optic, so it should very fast
very limited availability BT are crazy doing all that advertising when the majority won't be able to use it until next year.
