Curse marketing people and their tendency to hijack and mangle terms.
Virgin Fibre (which is actually delivered over coax, not fibre) is a
kind of broadband, but I notice that BT are now referring to ADSL as
"broadband" and their FTTC offerings as "Infinity" so I presume you're
considering moving from Virgin's coax solution to BT's ADSL?
What are you currently paying for Virgin's service? A quick look at
BT's web site indicates prices as follows (ignoring the introductory
FTTC: £47.50/month (capped to 52Mbps) or £54/month (uncapped)
Is BT going to be that much of a saving?
Radio should be fine at 1 Mbps, and probably YouTube too.
I'm intrigued to see that (once one ignores the introductory offers) A&A
are now actually cheaper for a basic ADSL service than BT. They'll do
it for you for £35/month - including a telephone line but no POTS
service on it.
