      We are considering switching to BT once our 12 month contract has expired. Is their internet service more or less the same as Virgin Media? I know they have recently upgraded to fibre optic but I don't really know much about that.

      At the distance you are from the exchange you will not get any more from a BT ADSL connection. Sky are offering Fibre packages if your exchange has been upgraded. Have a look at the Sky Fibre section for more info.

      If you are able to get BT Infinity (BT's version of fibre to the cabinet) in your area then you will be able to obtain better speeds with them (you can use BT Infinity – super fast broadband with a fibre optic internet connection to check). There are a few other providers which also use BT's fibre network (sky will also offer an option in the near future), but I do not know which ones off hand (I'm sure a google search will tell you). Note that they all (except virgin) use BT's infrastructure, so if you cannot get one, you will not be able to get the others.
