| || || | migrating my broadband.. any reccomendations?
Henry the Hoover
I'm about to come out of my 12 month contract with wanadoo. Can anyone
reccomend an ISP which will supply me with a 1 or 2mbit connection with
a decent download allowance (~20gb / month)... I'd be using it for
gaming and also a bit of p2p so it's got to allow that.
Any reccomendations - either to go with or to avoid would be appreciated!

| || || | BT problems - is it because they screw you up on purpose after a d/l limit?
Just got my BT connection 2Mb/s working after asking to cancel - guess
what, one day later it's screwed again - pings really bad when they
were perfect before, d/l's pause, it takes ages to grab a 1MB file
compared to when it was good - email is slow, pages do not load -
nothing has changed on my PC except I logged off and on again - did
that many times as a test the past day no problem, then...

| || || | sky / tv disconnecting broadband!
sorry for lack of detail here, but i just want to see if anyone has
heard of this happening before.
i have a friend who is finding that when he turns on the tv it is
disconnecting his broadband connection (BT Openworld). Not sure if this
is the actual TV or the SKY box, but something is causing it.
he doesnt have sky connected to the phone line either.

Is it possible to get broadband service from other than Kingston

I know they have the monopoly on the hardware and provision of connectivity,
but is it possible to get the actual broadband service from another provider

| || || | Plusnet - still no service ten weeks after order placed.
I thought I'd have a go at Plusnet in public. Just discussing the matter
with first line support is sociable but unsatisfying. I'm a worm who
rarely turns, but Plusnet is just too complaisant for me to stomach any
longer in silence.
I placed an order for Plusnet ADSL on 1st September, ten weeks ago. I
still have no connection. Plusnet blame BT, who blame Plusnet. I can
only speak to first...

Interesting...especially as PusNet have done an LLU deal with Easynet. I
wonder if Murdoch might now look at PusNet for their subscriber base to
add to the package? The pieces would certainly fit together.
A marriage made in hell...

I am trying to replace a WiFi link from the house to the workshop that

Do you know if the cheap aria microfilter is OK? I need to buy another 2

used to have dialup with Demon back in the day (1996 or so), they still

My brother lives in a 5 story block of apartments/flats and would like
to start using the internet. He isn't currently connected with a BT
line and only needs access to the internet as he isn't bothered about
making phone calls.
Can anyone suggest the best/easiest/cheap(ish) way of getting online?
