Moving away from the Virgin fibre speeds

Fibre optic

Has anyone ditched Virgin fibre (I am currently on Gig1) and gone to another supplier such as Sky who can only offer around a 60mbps in their area.

I was wondering about the impact this would have on streaming, business use such as Teams meetings, gaming (2 x xboxes in the house) etc.

I haven't but I understood that with gaming latency is more important on a day to day basis and this is generally better via Openreach operators like Sky.

Downloading large games will still be a lot faster via VM but then how often is this done? 

The minimum/optimum specs for streaming are surprisingly low and are normally easily met by low spec FTTC connections.
