    o2 Home Access

    Looking at home broadband from O2.

    As not got O2 exchange here so I would be on the Home Access package. Has anyone here got it and what are speeds like at the moment as I have heard mixed reports on the home access package.

    @Russdev:

    Don't do it friends of mine have this and the speeds are terrible, only when you upgrade the package will you get anything worth shouting about.

    Go with the ISP who has their equipment at the exchange.

    Agreed, friend of mine is screaming about this at the moment and he's only just migrated in (and migrating back out!)

    O2 LLU based (they have their equipment installed at the exchange) services are good. Unfortunately their home access product is heavily oversubscribed since it costs them a lot more to run.

    I'd avoid the home access product for now

    How far from the exchange are you Russ?
    I am quite a way from our exchange yet still manage to get 2.50Mb download and 850Kb upload and that from talk talk as well who have done me proud as it costs me nothing since i have my phone contract with them.
