Have leased a flat in London and am moving there next week from New York.
Can anyone tell me how one gets wifi in one's flat?
Is there one company with a better reputation than others?
Start by getting a PAYG SIM for your unlocked smartphone (the Three is good) for mobile internet (around £10 a month), or a dongle for your laptop. To get home broadband installed, you first need to find out if you have a BT or another phone line in your property (broadband supplier can do a check), and you either reactivate the line (cost nothing to around £120) or get a new line (free to £120 installation). Once your landline is installed/reactivated, you can have broadband from a provider of your choice (they can often help with landline issue). Or if you are in a cable area (just one company - Virgin Media), you can get a cable phone and cable broadband.
Provided you get a decent mobile phone coverage in your flat, many renters dispense with home broadband and just use mobile internet.
