    Best Broadband?

    Looking to get BB at home now - Is there any good ISPs out there?

    I'm used to NTL but cant get cable at my place, so it's gonna be a BT line

    My initial choices are:

    BT Total Broadband
    Be

    Would PREFER unlimited usage (no caps), fast as possible upload and download speeds, and budget of about £25 maximum (monthly)

    check out this site: www.ispreview.co.uk

    they have a top 10 based on readers comments, they have been going for well over six years now so definetly worth a look.

    But keep in mind, you pay for quality.... so expect to pay a little more than the 15.99 you can pay a month for Tiscalli if you want a good service provider.

    Try Tiscali guys, up to 8MB uncapped though like most now, they have a fair usage policy

    Avoid them if you like customer service

    But I have been with them myself for a year plus (mainly because they are cheap)... so it depends what you are looking for.

    A company like zen internet, provide ADSL MAX for 24.99 with a free static IP address... They have there call centers in the UK. This is just an example, obviously there are other companys out there. But these guys have heared fo customer service, and will help you if things go wrong.

    Totally agree, their Customer service (or the lack thereof) is shocking But then their downtime is minimal so its swings n roundabouts

    Ive been with Pipex for years, never had one day of trouble.

    I suspect I'm getting ripped off but its 70 every 3 months or something Im not going to complain.

    Pipex are great, very little, if any, downtime. Good customer service. Just a bit dear, and very hot on fair usage...
