      First off I checked my number with the Sky website, then O2 then got pointed towards samknows. Both Sky and O2 through BT said 2Mbps but Samknows quoted the higher speeds, distance from exchange etc.

      if your around 4.6km from your exchange then you're right you're going to be somewhere between 2-4 but most likely more towards 2 which is a shame

      Be Unlimited is available at your exchange and seems to be highly recommended too, se what their checker says https://www.bethere.co.uk/broadband.do

      Although if you have an O2 phone contract too then you get a discount on your O2 BB too 7.34 a month rather than 12.23 (i think first 2 months is free as well)

      best of luck with which ever ISP you choose tho

      Yea, I'm with O2 on my phone so it's handy with the discount. Be was another high recommendation. I'll choose someone.

      Thanks for your kind help.
