    Looking to get the fastest connection i can and with G.Fast available it seems my options are BT, Zen and EE. BT only guarrantees 150, zen says 202mbit minimum and EE says 183mbit minimum. EE is by far the cheaper that Zen but has anyone got it already, how does it perform???

    My Bt guarantee a minimum of 150 minimum, but since getting the service it has never dropped and my speeds on pc average around 270/300 dl and constant 50 ul.

    As good as any other for the 'last mile' but it's the support and backbone you'll need to know about. What does http://dslchecker.bt.com show?

    The sync speed on all of them will be the same, it's the same line, the same modem (except BT) and the same minimum speed for handback. Go with whoever is offering the best overall deal, remember to use Quidco/TCB.

    So you should get very good speeds, possibly even 300+ if everything works out and you pick that package.

    Shame, very hard to argue with 160Mbps for £28.

    I think there’s at least one person here who does, and they were happy with it at the time. I can’t remember any more than that.

    I think their website is broken from a couple of other addresses I've checked. If you get on the live chat then usually they come back and say they can serve you.
