    Who are you guys with for your internet access? & have you ever had any problems?

    My internet cut off last night I was well on one :x Will not be going with NTL again when we move so we will be with BT, Sky & need a new internet service provider!

    Im with BT they are cheap and its a good broadband connection. The IT guy where my OH works recomends them because they dont have you share a line with loads of other people or something? Apparently really cheap ones like Tiscalli have you share your connection with other people so its a slow connection. Also Bulldog are regularly on watchdog as being utter crap so dont touch them.

    One draw back with BT is that if you have technical problems you speak with a foreigner and this can be really annoying! But you can by them a set monthy DD and I pay them £33 a month for both my broadband and telepone.

    LOL, right well. I have just checked with Vodafone, and they say that their package (£25) all you need is an open BT line, and you dont get the quartlerly BT bill like you do with all the others.
    You get Norton spy ware but no wireless modem (((OK dont laugh here, BUT...my lap top isnt wifi, i wouldnt be able to use a wireless modem in that case would i???)))
    Im confuddled!!

    We're with tiscasli. Three of us on at the same time on the same connection via a wireless router (although, DH and FIL are hardlined to it) and it doesn't slow down at all. Good speed. Did have a few problems a year ago with it disconnecting and the not connecting again, but we never found out what it was. I think it was the pc or modem. With use a Netgear router and its been connected since we plugged that in.


    Be very careful when getting a new internet deal. You want one that's a fair use policy, like tiscali or pipex. Other wise if you go over your monthy bandwitdh limit, they'll either disconnect you or try to charge you extra. Its usually in very VERY fine print, so read carefully ladies :wink:

    This has to be too good to be true, whats the catch apart from the 50 quid fee (not a lot hey?) and yes its a fiver a month more than most...but not bad. I guess 3 years is a long time to sign up for!

    No way lol I can't agree! I used Tiscali & it was pants! How you login too is pants. I found it impossible! Also Pipex OMG NO NO NO I was with them & I couldn't wait not to be. They charge for everything even if you move & when their service is SO crap they want a stupid amount of money so you can go & connect to a better one ... they don't even have support for broadband on the telephone you have to email :roll: THats ok if you can connect to the internet???
