Anyone got F2S 8Mb yet? by cAm
Hi, I was wondering if anyone has recently subscribed/tried F2S new 8Mb service? Was curious to know if they really provide around 800Kb upspeed? My exchange is listed on their website and it says it would get enabled around August time. So isn't it worth goin for 24.99 on a monthly contract with no activation fees (as i will migrate) and speeds 8Mb up - 768Kb down, and not to mention that...

New to ADSL broadband, what does 'bitstream' mean? by Horse.trader
Having fairly recently joined NTL (512k) broadband, I was told by a BT engineer that came to remove some RFI filters from my BT line, that, my (broadband) 'connection' in the exchange was 'bitstream' he seems to indicate this was good? My actual connection speed is 2.2mps, but apparently BT cap this to 512k, which is what I pay for, it certainly seems to be lightening fast, mind you,...

Plusnet - 21 days to cease and re-provide ?? by Tim...
The present account is an " Always on DSL Connect" type account, one of those that only connects at 256k or thereabouts. The user of such would like to pay £1 a month less, and get the full 2Mb speeds now available, opting for one of the newly formed "Plus" accounts. Unfortunately, Plusnet are offering a potential 21 day lead time on such a transfer, and, it seems cannot commit to a...

Netgear DG834 by NickNike
From the kind and helpful feedback of a previous question I asked, and after searching the net, I've decided to buy the Netgear DG834 to use as the ADSL modem. I have a second computer I would like to network to the main computer. 1) If I buy the wireless version DG834G, can I connect the main computer using cables only, and then what wireless device would I need for the second computer....

Tiscali - Still waiting for the 1MB unlimited upgrade by Tony
In March this year, Tiscali wrote to all their existing '512k unlimited' customers telling them that they were upgrading their existing 512k unlimited customers to 1MB at no extra cost over and above the normal 512k package price, but never mentioned it was a capped service that they were moving them to. This was misleading in my opinion and I don't think they were being up-front about the...

Do not trust bulldog broadband/adsl by londoncityslicker
wrote in message ... Cannot contact Bulldog customer service. When I press option 1, says lines are busy and then cuts me off. I'm going to complain to Ofcom and BBC Watchdog about it. I hope other people complain to Ofcom and WD too. Yep. They are still suffering from a huge demand for their customer services.
