  • What Broadband (UK)

    Hi, i dont have broadband at home at the moment but am hopeing to get connected with in the next few weeks. I am looking for some good deals and want a reliable connection. I am on a BT line and do not want to switch to NTL or anything like that. I am looking for a 0.5 connection and need all the modems etc.

    Can you post any deals you have seen recently and rate or any services you are on and are pleased with.

    Many Thanks

    Anjam

              cheap as chips (£23 a month inclusive vat), reliable as hell (for me n e ways) your contract is only monthly and not a year one and its only 17 quid setup and they send u modem/microfilters etc etc.

                  The best ISP in the UK is Nildram.

                  Whatever you do, do not be duped into ordering BT ADSL (BT Openworld) as the services is just below average imo, even though they are the backbone provider. They and many other ISP's tie you into a 12 month contract to lengthen your pain.

                  Plusnet have some good reviews, and also offer 20:1 contention ratios at £5+ per month over Nildram.
                  Zen is also another good ISP I have heard a lot of things about, espcially if you like newsgroups as they offer more than just 1 thread.
                  Nildram - their support is slipping recently, especially out of hours when it gets outsourced to go knows where in the world. But pings are excellent and they have ranked in the top 3 speed tests for many months over at adslguide.org.uk. Also with a 1 month minimum contract on all packages you can easily move to another provider if you aren't happy.

                  As the old saying goes - you get what you pay for.

                      BlueYonder, it's amazing.

                      I've heard VERY bad things about BT, NTL and bulldog.

                            Strange - been with BT for over a year and had no problems with them.

                            Mind you, I used Big Pond in Australia (worst. ISP. ever) so I'm feeling spoiled just being able to connect!

                              From what i've "heard" Blueyonder and BT are the ones to go with. Seems as they are the biggest telephone network providers they offer a reasonable and reliable service.
