Hello I am moving to Glasgow in a few days, to a flat without any internet connection... and I was wondering - what do you think is the best provider? Is there a way to have broadband without any additional stuff, like TV or phone line if I really don't need them?
Thank you

The sad thing is, it doesn't even go to me directly because I'm not in Sales or higher management :bawling:

It makes us richer so thank you for your choice

A new series called "The Night Of", started last Thursday on Sky Atlantic, did you watch it?

As-long as it isn't Virgin Media, you should be fine.

To reiterate, Virgin is bullcrap. It's effectively a rebranded NTLWorld, as I guess it was the cheapest thing for Mr Branson to buy. And I'm sure you're aware of NTL's notoriety for being objectively the worst provider ever.

Well, that's Virgin Media.

Virgin Broadband is unbeatable. They get some bad reviews (as do any provider), but they own their own network and aren't just renting bits of BTs network which Plusnet, talktalk and so on do. It's a fast network too - We're paying for 152Mbp/s and I consistently get that or slightly higher. I've never had a problem with them. We've had Virgin Broadbands services for the past 13 years and could not be happier.

BTW, virgin broadband do 9 month contracts. google it for more info

Thank you all very much, I've chosen the Virgin Broadband, since I don't need the phone line with it, so far it works great, I've been downloading some stuff and it's fast enough
