    I'm with Be, Unlimited package, getting 15Mbps Down. £18pm.

    If you sign up via Quidco you can earn £40!

    Thanks, never heard of that quidco thing.

    Also, does anyone know if I can have the reverse dns set for the static IPs from Be? Cant find anything on their website and Ive emailled them but no reply.

    I haven't actually heard anything from Quidco, and I signed up several months ago

    You might need to submit a ticket telling them about your missing earnings, I know I have had to do this in the past. But hey, it's all good, free money for doing some shopping that you wouldn't have earned anything on anyway!

    I use BE internet at home, I get 13mbit down and 1.3mbit up for 22 quid a month.

    It really is the best internet service I have ever used. no caps, no filtering and best of all a static IP address which you can run servers off.

    It really is impressive.

    MAC address has been requested from BT.

    Hopefully theyll give me one.. but im only 6 months into a 12 month contract.

    Might just have to get another line installed in that case.

    webman I also moved away from f2s.

    Far too many take overs, and their customer support which used to be spot on (no queues, spoke to technical competent person) was eroded away.

    I was offered an uncapped service if I stayed, however I routinely went way over my 50GB pcm limit and they never complained. I believe they haven't actually taken any subscriber to book over that problem. That may change in the future though.

    BastardBT just got back to me today. Wont let me out of my contract without paying off the remainder. Anyone got any tips how to get out of the contract?

    Im sure I read somewhere that if they change their T&Cs then it could be possible to leave - anyone know when their introducing Phorm?

    Think I might just have to get a second phone line put in at this rate.

    I don't think they've set a date yet and isn't it going to be opt in anyway?

    Could be right. I followed it for few days then forgot about it once I realised that CPW were being sensible about it.

    We understand your very valid concerns regarding this privacy issue, and how it will potentially affect internet users.

    The latest information we have regarding this matter is that BT is currently running trial of around 10,000 users, in an opt-in scheme for Residential (not Business) Broadband users only.

    I hope this is of some help, and if you have any further queries regarding this, please do get back in touch.
    They haven't really answered any of my questions
