      I think I will drop some speed, when I switch but I rarely max out my connection so I am happy to be saving some money.

      Blueyonder is cable, the distance from the exchange is not relevent. Like I said I am taking a chance on losing speed, but I am tired of paying 35 a month for BB.

      Oh! Did I not make it clear, this is my before speed

      but the distance from the exchange will be relevant when you move to sky BB it will determine the speed you will be able to get

      Oh right I see, sorry I am somewhat dizzy at times.

      I am 1.7km as the crow flies. I live on a main road which is at a v to another main road which the exchange is on, so hopefully not to much of BTs weird and wonderful wiring detours between me and the exchange.
