Moving house to lower speed and little/no alternative?

Hi

I am due to move to my new house at the end of the month. I initiated the house move process this afternoon. One of the things that was mentioned was that the speed at the new address was less than the one I live at now. Apparently there is no point in decreasing my package to Fibre 1 as I’d only save £1 a month. 


I’m disappointed in the suggested decrease in speed as I’m not over the moon with my current speed and was putting up until the contract enabled me to move.  I’ve tried to see what else is available at the new address and it seems there aren’t any major competitors- both Sky and Virgin draw a blank via their websites. 

Is there any way of checking if I can get decent speeds or if I’m moving to a blackspot. What is also disconcerting is that I’m moving to a very old property and might well end up with Wi-fi issues along with speed issues.

@Ericcat 

As you can see your expected speed range is 60/43mb and there is no waiting list so should be no problem with getting connection

Thanks for this @imjolly - can you tell if Sky or Virgin provide services from this information. Neither of them say they do via their respective websites
