      What's a digital region area?

      Digital TV related? All our analogue got turned off in Wales some time ago and Sky is giving me Fibre, does that count?

      We (littlebigone.com) are a Digital Region ISP. If anyone lives in South Yorkshire we'd be glad to help you out with FTTC services. We've just launched our Ultrafast Broadband, which offers speeds over 40Mb, potentially up to 100Mb for a few.

      Thanks

      Re: Digital region and sky FTC

      I've looked into littlebigone but unfortunatley I'm only going to save 22.35 by cancelling phone and BB from sky. The unltrafast will be an eye watering 92 install and 48 per month with an 18 month contract, seen as I'm only quoted as potentially get 52/18 speedwise I just can't justify the extra 25 per month...

      I've seen people with BT speedtests of 52/18 get more like 70-80...

      Just to be clear, if you take our phone line and ultrafast broadband then the connection will be 92 (50 for the BB & 42 for the line). This is reduced to 42 only if you take our advance pay option. We also have an offer which reduces the 92 by 25 which is detailed on our website.

      48 per month is for line rental and ultrafast broadband (13 + 35), which for a line, and potentially 100Mb broadband we this is reasonable.

      To stress this is unlimited downloads.

      We also have an full IPTV service which we call network TV, There are packages with ultrafast broadband and we are running free installation on all TV packages at the moment.

      I hope this helps.

      Thanks
