Get a package with Virgin Media if you have coverage.

If you do but don't wish to use Virgin Media, call back BT and tell
them that Virgin Media are doing installation for free and that you
will sign with Virgin Media if BT does not give you a good discount
for the installation. They would be dumb to lose a client inste

I used to have Virgin Media (NTL, whatever) cable connectivity and it
was superb.

Sorry to say, but relying on mobile internet only is something you
wish only in your worst enemies, and even then it would be with a
heavy heart.
