    Just moved into my second year digs and having a shop round to see what the best internet provider is for students (price, speed, data limts etc)
    Anyone had any good/bad experiences with particular providers and would you recommend any specifically?

    Personally I'd say virgin media but asking you neighbours would be best. They'll probably know the best ones for you locally.
