If I had a choice, I would have cable as it is so reliable. My (abysmal) ADSL2 barely gives me 2Mb and it is advertised as 'up to 24Mb'
I get constant disconnections, lack of sync etc.
2Mb is all my phone line can manage due to distance from exchange.

I must admit its the broadband that concerns me the most,sky are quoting up to 6.5 meg,whereas cable guarenteed 2,4 0r 10 meg.Im 2 miles from the exchange.The sky deal is cheaper for tv,calls and better hd box.
Ill have to ask around what people are getting in carlisle with sky.thanks.
ps is 2 mile from exchange good?
