    BT broadband.

    Don't touch them with a bargepole. Absolute kack and now i am tied into a 12 month contract with them.

    I had Freeserve anytime prior to this and i would highly recommend that. Great service, fast connection and only £15 a month.

    telewest blueyonder cable broadband, was 512 and they have increased all services 512 and above by 50% for free.

    I always get max bandwidth and no downtime at all .

    I was downloading today and my bandwidth monitor registered a steady 95Kb/s for the duration of 30 minute download

    Highly recommended.

    Only downside is no static IP but with a router and a no-ip dynamic dns I do ok

    NTL Broadband

    600k Down / but only 128k up

    The download speed is excelent, and the pings to online game servers are very low But if you want to host a game the upload speed is a bit too slow. It depends what you want it for?

    Reliability is quite good. I think in the 3-4 years ive had it, its only been off maybe 1 or 2 days. But it really does depend on your area. My mate had a lot of trouble until he had a seperate modem put in from his digi box, since then hes been 100%

    Customer service is Very Very slow. but once you get through, there alright.

    I'm with Force9/PlusNet, they are absolutely fantastic, i can't praise them enough and their prices are good too. They score as well or better than most of the big name providers in that website above too! I highly recommend them!

    Eclipse (www.eclipse.net.uk)

    Tests show them to be the fastest ADSL provider in the UK and the support is good.

    AOL

    1mb line

    Through BT Broadband.

    AOL = crap browser, but then I use internet explorer. However AOL messenger is good and the email is easy if I can not be arsed with outlook.

    Fantastic in my eyes and the customer service is second to none.
