Snap works well, great speed at all times, good support. Unlike others I find the Wifi on the fritz very effective. I use 30/10 as I haven't found a need for anything faster yet, i'll keep my $10 or whatever!

trakman: my rMBP and iPhone are 802.11ac compatible - will that handle the 200?

wasabi2k: I am having a hard time justifying 200 down - 100 is plenty atm.

Over 100 also means you need all your infra to be gig.

For example my WAN router is gig and switch is gig, but APs are only 100Mbps. Given most devices are on one the most I would be pushing is ~100Mbps so not really worth it.

Most of my clients are wireless though - if you had wired stuff it might be different, but I only ever use my Roku, WDTV Live or PS3 one at a time.

Yes, my rMBP and 6 Plus achieve my speedtest of 205/22. The TX rate is arouynd 500mbit  from my router (Apple Extreme) The Huaqwei 659b will be similar

But an Ookla speedtest, while nice, is not very useful. If I had a house full of flatmates, large family, multi streamers, yes then it might be useful. Ill go back to 100/20 af ter a bit more of a play

thanks everyone who commented, I played safe and went with Spark.
like JohnR said, all offerings should all be fairly similar
fingers crossed
