Default Broadband with 0800 dialup


"Chris Bailey" wrote in message

Does anybody know of a broadband service which also provides a backup
0800 modem dialup number,


Presuming you don't want to go AOL... You best choice might be not to let
this influence you - but go for the best ADSL provider that matches your BB
needs.

Then, as contingency, sign up for the OneTel service. No standing charge, an
0800 number to dial - but you will be charged 1p/minute as PAYG.

This will give you long periods at peak time at very reasonable cost and you
can always use the service when away from home.

The main issue with this is that you may need to switch your outgoing SMTP
settings. On the otherhand if the problem with your ADSL supplier is not the
'front-end' BT department - but in the backend 'ISP' bit - then this does
give you extra contingency.
