    Question Mark

    Hi everybody,

    I'll move soon in my new flat in Edinburgh and I would like to have the fastest connection, but also the less limited one for downloads (like P2P).

    Requierements:
    • Wireless router
    • 50GB download/upload limit minimum (unlimited would be the best)
    • Upload speed of 448Kbit minimum


    I've done already few search and I've found Be unlimited (Be There) which looks interesting: 24Mbit/1.3Mbit, Unlimited downloads, 24/month
    But on ISPreview UK they say that we have to have a "fair usage" of the downloads.
    So I'm a bit scared!

    Many thanks!

    PS: if you also know a good phone provider with interesting prices for international call, I also interested!

    the fair usage limit is 500 gigs so it ain't too bad.

    but i would read into the traffic shaping to see if they are throttling bittorrent before you jump in.

    Actually that's what I would like to know!
    Do you know where I can find this information?
    What ISP do you use? Is it any good?

    I use Virgin Media for everything, at the moment they're doing a tv/phone/broadband for 30.
    I download constantly and have no bother with them at all. They have good customer service as well.

    I live in Cumbernauld btw, which is about 40 miles from Edinburgh

    Agree, been using virgin (telewest) for phone/interweb/tellybox for years, downloaded feckloads and never had any problems with them.

    They even gave me a special deal on calls abroad because they noticed I phoned Belgium on a regular basis. Now I pay local rate for a few specified numbers in Belgium.
    I'm really impressed with their service
