      Yes as there are not any other exchanges near me and I was also moved to the Mid package 6 days after my local was unbundled.

      if the question is aimed at the OP, then as they are on cable and not a bt phone line, they wont have an attenuation to use.

      Looks like the maximum speed you can get where you live is:

      5.5Mb with ADSL
      Looking at my router it states that I'm connecting at..

      Lots of companies offer ADSL broadband, like BT, TalkTalk, AOL, Tiscali, Orange and Sky. Virgin Media also do ADSL. However, Virgin Media is the only company that also offers cable broadband in the UK.
      Surely, That is wrong? As Smallworld and that other company (forgot what its called), Cover UK and also do Cable Broadband.

      I went against the ladies wish and installed Sky Broadband, and now I am downloading at 12MB.
      (Super Fast)
      I am glad I left Virgin media
