Sky or VM

I am currently with Sky on their fibre package. I pay 32.99 for 40mb and a phone line which I get evenings and weekends. Looking at Virgin I can get 50mb and anytime on the phone package for 32. Now I know its 99p cheaper but I get an extra 10mb and anytime calls. But I have a few questions.

1. I have Sky Q. Will VM work ok with this?
2. How good is the router?
3. Is it truly unlimited and no slow downs like Sky is?

Cheers

Correct. Although Now vodafone allow customers to use their own purchased router.

Some good and bad feedback on them much like virgin media really.

I believe they bought the old C & W network infrastructure could be wrong though.

Re: Sky or VM

If you only want BB of around 50Mb, you might as well stick with Sky. You will get a proportionally better upstream than VM.

If you want a lot of down speed, i.e. over 100Mb, with a possibility of a 350Mb package, then I would choose VM.
