I presume Sutton still comes under the Crosshills Telephone Exchange.

What broadband speed can I expect in Sutton?

What Internet Service Providers have a presence at the Crosshills exchange? Any recommendations for an ISP would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, Sutton connects to the Crosshills exchange.

I have a 2MBIT connection with Virgin Broadband, 17.99 per month and it works great for what I want it for.

Some of the "cheaper", "unlimited" provider deals have higher contention ratios and will automatically downgrade your connection speed if you exceed bandwidth limits.

As I undersand it, once an exchange is ADSL broadband enabled by BT, all UK ADSL ISPs can have a presence.

I'm on Sky's connect broadband service for 17 per month (can't get the 5 a month deal in Sutton yet as the lines haven't been upgraded).

Advertised as "upto 8Mb". Actual speed between 4 and 5Mb usually.

Good service

I get 8mb from eclipse and a great service.
BT said they should expect around 6.5mb or more.

I have just attempted to read the previous message from 'Shouta' but I am unable to unravel anything which makes sense. Can anyone interpret it for me? Is it in English or a new language? Where do the full stops and commas fit in? Is it the speed of the internet connection that has removed them?
