    A decent broadband internet provider.

    Well I am pig sick of blue yonder, nothing is straightforward, for a gimp like me, My e-mail is forever going paer shaped, It wont let me set up another alias for danni, loads of other stuff keep going wrong.

    My 56kconnection was with AOL, and all tho slow and a pain in the arse the ease of use, features ect, were a lot more and easy to use for a novice like me, when I looked on as my user name I had my own e-mail addy ect, that was seperate from dannis and vice versa. There was a chat room that danni used, blueyonder has none of this.

    So what do you guys recommend and I am on telewest for my phone, too, so I dont know if this will cause a problem.

    Try AOL or BT Yahoo, you need a NTL or BT phone line for AOL & BT phone line for BT Yahoo

    they are f@#kers then aint they, but you can get the software for virus protection, firewall etc seperate, so that along with the emails is about the only difference

    ive had aol now for 5 years and have been happy with them so far.
    ive upgraded to broadband and im well chuffed. £27.99 per month.
    best thing is that if something goes wrong then they are a free phone call away.
    down side is aol content, but you can always use explorer or something to get away from this.

    just waiting for my area to be upgraded to broadband 1mb, ill be in there like a shot.

    i thought blueyonder was supposed to be good :?

    Cheers guys, Are any of you with bt for your phone and do they offer the same packages like telewest at the moment I have a phone package were I pay 25 squid a month but all my local, national calls, all day every day are free, to bt, cable ect ect. But have to pay for mobiles, ect. Do they do anything like this as this saves me quite a bit of money, and thats why I have stayed with them so long cause of this.
