Right, i'm fed up of paying 30 a month for BT Broadband. It's time to change!

What deals are out there?

We deal with Zen at work, but they are just as expensive as BT.

Sky is not an option as that is going off. Never watch any tv now

Virgin 20meg broadband is 37 per month, but that's being upgraded to 50meg shortly! And the Large package is 25 and that's just been upgraded to 10meg.

don't you need to be in certain areas to get virgin broadband?

tried BE? they're getting activated at my exchange at the end of the month. they're doing 24meg for 18/19 iirc. don't know what they're like though, i might give them a try though

another thing to take into account is zen are cutting down on downloading pirated material. my boss who is with them got threatened to be cut off last week if he continued. having an ISP thats switched on has its downsides!

I'm with Be and would recommend them to anyone

Their customer service has been brilliant and i've not had a single problem with connection.

If i have a problem, i email them, they send me a txt msg when the email has been replied to.

Up to 20mb for 18 a month. Can't complain

You pay for what you get. I find that Zen are one of the better ISP's about.

Naa o2 atm have no limits or anything and you get as fast as an adsl2+ line can handle so really good, they are trying to take on mega customers though so nobody can say if it'll stay like that but i'd switch right now if i could.

Any entanet supplier is a good bet, nothing but good reports about them and I migrate to one tomorrow.

That mis correct about o2 taking over b* i work for o2 and have not relay had any complaints.
If you are an o2 customer you can have 8meg for 7.50 with unlimited downloads but you do need a bt line.
I have the power to give the 8meg away free at the min to existing o2 customers

Willay, Zen are actually not bad at all. Just very expensive!

Thinking of going with Tiscali. 15 a month with unlimited downloads.

Don't want my BT phone intergrated with the broadband or my mobile part of the deal.

Anyone had any experiences with Tiscali?
