    I ended up going with someone else they just couldn't connect me, now they have taken £90 out of the account.

    Yep, and Tiscali bought out Nildram via Pipex too... Zen is going to be getting my business too when the deadline for changeover gets closer (think it's August next year)

    Yeah I'm with f2s, too - I'll just wait to see if the service goes down hill. But I would never go (back) to Zen - I moved away form their high-expense low-speed service years ago. £24.99/month for upto 8Mbit with 20GB bandwidth limit - no thanks

    I think the only providers that F2S customers will be happy with will end up being the Enta.net resellers such as UKFSN, ADSL24 etc etc, they have packages that near enough match the F2S offerings.

    Yes, I agree with John as UKFSN will be my first choice of provider if f2s service goes down the pan

    Re: Tiscali

    you get your Migration Authorisation Code (MAC) from your current ISP and it should be in the form of "4letters7numbers/2letters2numbers1letter". you then pass this on to your new ISP who will tell you 10 days later they tried it and BT told them it was the wrong MAC, and that you don't need a MAC to change ISP, just call BT on this freephone number and get them to remove the tags. After 20 minutes on the line to BT you get to speak to a techie who will tell you that there are no tags on the line because it has broadband, and the MAC codes are there so that individual companies can negotiate this deal between them without going through BT. you then get back to your proposed ISP (via a third world callcentre) who say that's fine, just call the sales desk and they will sort you out. When you eventually get through to sales, after say, 10 minutes, they set up the job again and then try to charge you the one-off setup fee you've already paid for the original job, and, no, the router hasn't arrived yet. you then call them every 3 days to check the progress of your order.

    Lol, I don't think thats how its supposed to happen... :P

    I didn't even need to speak to anyone for switching to BT, as you can do it all online. Now we just have to see if the system works properly.

    I meant to say that neither ISP in this case is BT.
