    Just had Bt upgrade our broadband to infinity
    Same price as before for 40gb download or extra £8 for unlimited so payed the extra as we were using more than 40gb a month anyway
    We live in a village so speeds were between 1.5-2.5 mb/sec that's not great
    Now on 38mb/sec as just speed tested it :)
    Loving it :)
    Just recommending Bt ,engineer had problems but didn't give up and all sorted now :)

    Nice one, no more spinning disks on your tv screen as you stream those channels. I used to be on 10mb & got sick of the streaming speeds, now I'm on 30mb I don't have a problem.
    I'm on Virgin but have heard good things ref infinity

    We are stuck with 2MB speeds, so seeing people say theit 10MB speeds are too slow is depressing :( That said, we are moving next week and I am staying on ADSL2+ LLU with Sky as it is estimated at 14- 18MB, quite an increase for us!! Was going to get fibre if it had been installed in our local cabinet, but with ADSL speeds that we are expected to get, I can't justify the extra outlay at the moment.

    Been on Sky Fibre (uses BT's network) since September and loving it. 37Mb down 9Mb up.

    Spent 3 years since buying this house with 3.5Mb which was useless for most streaming.

    Anyone wondering when fibre is being rolled out to their cabinet (not just exchange) this checker will sometimes give you a rough date or at least an overview on what you can have: http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome
