Tidworth Broadband Suppliers

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Any views on what Broadband/Telephone suppliers are best bet for the Patch in Tidworth? I wanted Sky, but Sky aren't set up in that area.

    NTL has been taken over by Virgin Media.

    To be fair, in Tidworth NTL did have a rep who actually gave out his own mobile no and fixed problems pretty quickly.

    I had Virgin Media while I was posted there with a package that included Broadband, phone and TV for about £18 per month. The TV package included loads of channels and catch up TV & movies on demand.
     
  4. can you get broadband at all units then?
     
  5. hope we can get it in germany.... making sure ive got call of duty modern warfare 2 to blast out there!
     
  6. Stick your postcode in here http://allyours.virginmedia.com/

    Virgin have a handy bundle builder you can play about with the options and compare the prices HERE.

    Don't know what you mean by Sky not setup in that area, TV is by satellite (obviously) and broadband / phone is over a BT line. Try http://packages.sky.com/surf/ if you have the BT number or call their number on that page if you just have the postcode.
     
  7. Hi, Sky do supply internet broadband.
     
  8. Sky can only offer 'Sky Connect' in Tidworth, not their full Broadband Service.

    as an example Sky broadband (Unlimited) is £10 per month. Sky Connect (40Gb) is £17 per month. Something to do with lines in the area that is far too technical for me to understand.
