Default Cheapest Way to get Broadband?

The problem at the moment for you is the fact that most providers charge a
setup fee because BT (the buggers) charge the providers for each install.
Sometimes BT waives the fee to get more people interested but seeing as the
numbers are growing steadily anyway, they arent doing this at the moment i
dont think. The other thing is that you would have to pay the fee again at
your new address I'm afraid.

The only option you have is to either stump up the cash with a great isp
like plusnet (they are always at the forefront of new technologies like 2mb
services and so on) or you can ask around for any isps that are waiving the
charge so you only have to pay it once.

Good luck

Simon

Last time I looked, Virgin had free connection, one month contract and
24.99 per month. If that's still the case then that's a cheap way to get

up
and running and then quit and start again elsewhere.


They still offer free connection.
To terminate their contract you just need to give a month notice; fair
enough.
After moving house, you could continue with them and in this case even keep
your e-mail addys. I use them myself and they use NTL's backbone network,
which is pretty good. 5 emails and 10MB webspace, but otherwise, no frills
no rubbish.

Maximilian!
