In which case, you might find PlusNet's £18.99 package ideal. You are
not paying for P2P on that one (regular package is £21.99).



Or maybe their £14.99 DSL connect 150k service. It's still DSL

(datastream)
just capped to 150k bandwidth.

Jc.


The original poster did specify "broadband", and in the general UK
definition, 150k is NOT broadband...


hey hum...here we go again...

Are you saying a 150k connection IS broadband then? personally, I think
the 256k definition is stretching it. 512k plus is reality....


what i'm saying is that the question has been done to death in just about
every thread since Tiscali and then Plusnet launched their 150k service.

a motorway is still a motorway, even when it has a speedlimit of
40mph. But possibly not the route to choose when you are in a hurry.

BIG SNIP

If you do a search on the DSL Connect, the only reference to
Broadband is in the above paragraph...


because while it is broadband, they know that some will challenge
the term, because of the speed. It just makes life so much easier
not to bother to argue about it (again, and again, and again :-))
