Well i would suggest moving to Northampton and having a good fast cable service,but we are very fussy who we accept into our neighborhood and i would be afraid you might not be accepted... :D :rofl:

With Sky and thats similar to my bill.

TV package = £25 which is the entertainment, lifestyle, kids, documentary and music channels. Pretty much everything but movies and sports.
Broadband Unlimited= £7.50 would be £12.50 but get £5 discount as we have Sky Talk, free evening and weekend calls with that.
Line Rental = £12.25

Which all adds up to £44.75 a month. I would like a Tivo box that virgin do though.
We get 100 Mbps or so the computer says. Dunno what download speed that is but I get 1.6 MB/s download on utorrent. Fast enough. :)

You want to phone up and cancel Stinky. They'll probably offer you some kind of deal. I do it fairly often on Sky (and know people on Virgin that do the same), it usually works. I'm on free line rental and broadband for £2/month at the moment. That deal runs out in January so it will be time to 'cancel' again shortly :)

They sometimes do, but you have to serve 31 days notice, so I just phone up a couple of weeks later and say I've changed my mind, leave it say 6 months and try again.
