Not sure if its cheaper or not, as mine is in a package with my TV, but I cannot fault Virgin media when it comes to there broadband

Broadband has now all but replaced dial-up web access. Most people use an upgraded home phone line called ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line). Unlike the majority of broadband connections in the UK, which use telephone lines or mobile networks, fibre-optic broadband is transferred along special cables under the ground. The signals move a lot faster than they do along copper cables and offer speeds of up to 120Mb.Find out about BT Infinity at our dedicated BT Infinity page

In the UK the service is not available everywhere, and is mostly on offer in urban areas.

Virgin Media provides approximately 12.6 million UK homes with fibre-optic cable access and offers speeds of up to 120Mb.

BT offers the Infinity service to around another 4 million homes, offering speeds of up to 40Mb. BT aims to have 66 per cent of UK homes covered by 2015. The likes of TalkTalk, Sky and PlusNet also use BT's fibre infrastructure as a platform to offer a fibre service of their own.
