Help me choose a broadband deal?

I’m terrible with this technological stuff and I need someone to tell me what sort of broadband deal to look for.

I use internet a fair bit – facebook, hotmail, youtube etc. as well as watching programmes/films and catch-up tv. What sort of speed/download limit (I’m not very good with the jargon!) would I need to do this successfully without buffering and stuff like that?

I will be the only one using the internet.

I’m not fussed on having calls/digital tv, however it is something I’d consider if there was a good deal.

As cheap as possible!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

thanks 🙂

    Oh I have the perfect solution!

    For your usage (films & TV) you will want fibre. I was with BT then changed to these: http://www.uwEconomise.com – They don’t advertise through the media so save a great deal of money that they then pass on to their customers with no compromise of quality. Its a great model!

    £24.99 Per Month – I wont throw jargon at you, all you need to know is it will fit your needs snugly. I know this as I am a very similar user to yourself. Cant cope with buffering while watching Breaking Bad! 😀

    They also give you the option for free anytime calls etc. Best to have a little read through the broadband section on their website really. All the best!

    BT wireless hub is faster these days and won’t have any technical problems like for example signal stopped or went really slow.

    Idealy you want to be looking for a "truly unlimited" package. No matter what the limit is its always reachable as its easy to lose track of what you have used, it’s nice to not have to worry about it at all. Personally I am currently with Sky and in this respect they have been good.

    There are other things to consider, like how many people will be using the connection at the same time? If it’s just you then 20mb would be more than enough but if its a busy household you should consider looking into some fibre optic options (via Virgin Media if available in your area). Although Virgin have been known to throttle (slow down) streaming and other activity during peak hours. Also I know people who have had ongoing issues with disconnections but that is a very busy household with many devices so it is hard to judge Virgin as a whole on that one example, just something to consider if your house is busy also.

    Finally if you decide not to get fibre you should check online where your nearest telephone exchange is, the closer you are the more you are going to get out of your connection. Personally I am blessed with one behind my house so I actually get 19+/20mb from my connection but depending on location you might only see half your connection’s potential.

    Being the only user of my internet I could not be happier with 20mb, it never slows down I have never reached any limit and I can’t recall any disconnections.
