Broadband – Virgin v Sky

I thought I would post on something different tonight, the wonderful world of broadband & TV. I use both.

I am fortunate to be in an area which has Virgin fibre into my home, but at a cost. I spend nearly £100 a month for the privilege. Most of the TV I watch could be viewed by freeview.

Sky now offer a much cheaper deal, at less than half the price . The broadband speeds are not quite as good, but I am not always impressed with the service from Virgin, and I share a fibre cable with lots of others, if you know what I mean. Basically, their service is as good as they want it to be.

I believe I can get an almost similar package from sky for about £42 a month, and am seriously considering swapping.They suggest average speeds of 63MBs as compared with 95MBs which is what I appear to be getting (it was 87MBs earlier).

Running a sky check I appear to be able to get between 59.1 and 72.8 (if I get the fibre max deal), this will be fine.

For me tonorrow, their phone number is 0800 840 5394 ; I think I will have some of this – there is a small set-up fee.
