Re: [LUG] Fwd: UK 'misled' on broadband speeds

How do I know that I'll get better speeds before signing up? I'd be willing to change ISPs again (and pay more) if it would guarantee faster speeds (my wife likes to watch iPlayer and 4oD in the evening, and complains about the poor bandwidth).

Well for starters you can check the ThinkBroadband.com site, they have a comparison option to compare ISPs - http://www.thinkbroadband.com/isp/compare.html

Also check out the ThinkBroadband forums, talk to other existing customers and find out what they think.

You could also consider a PVR box to record TV, saves having to use iPlayer and 4oD and the quality would most probably be better too :-)

This is what I'm going to do, build a MythTV box with a couple of Freeview tuners and a satellite card or two (if I can find them cheap enough) then I can record any shows which I catch up with on iPlayer/ITV Player.
