Hmm.... could be a possible move here......

You can get BE broadband on 02392xxxxxxx (my phone number)
It's probably going to be this fast:
6 megs*
This estimate is based on from data supplied by BT

Or perhaps PlusNet could MATCH THIS  so I can stay put? ? ? ?

The techie bit
We'll always give you the fastest speed we can, depending on your chosen package. Actual download speeds depend on the distance between your home and the telephone exchange as well as the quality of your phone line. Even then, your broadband speed might vary from time to time. That's just the way it is.

I could get BE as exchange is enabled - test estimate gave me 7meg against 6meg I currently get. Do I really want LLU Undecided

Bulgaria - is that just outside Sheffield Grin
I'm getting 6Mb+  from PN at present and that's fast enough for me.
