      Moved house

      hi people,

      i have just moved house to iwade, sittingbourne. the availablility for broadband in this area is very poor via adsl due to the cable length from the exchange and vfast wireless is not an option as i live in rented apartment and getting the aerial put of the roof will not happen.

      so, has anyone got sky broaddband in this area and if so what connection speed are they experiencing, is it reliable. BT state that i am only going to get 0.5mpbs .

      any info would be grately appreciated.

      assuming THIS is your exchange then use the post code and do a route planner to your postcode...it'll give you a rough estimate of distance from exchange and then we can make an educated guess...
