    ISP's

    Due to finances I'm looking at moving ISP at from BT to somone else. I was just wondering who to go to as I don't a modem or anything as I have a router already. The main thing is cost as I'm paying 29.99 a month at the moment ad have a 40 gig amonth download limit. So any suggestions guys?

    I very rarely use all of it unless i decide to downloadx a whole lot of linux iso's, which doesn't happen that often but I don't really want a restrictve limit in place if I can avoid it.

    Re: ISP's

    o right, im with NTL and they are doing it for £15.50 a month i think, and that was 2mb/sec and its going up to 4mb/sec and there are no montly usage limits.

    but NTL being cable i dont think your router would work with it, im not really that clued up on ADSL, but talk talk and bulldog are worth looking at though.... all depends on yr usage these days... lower usage you can get a cheaper package

    zen internet, unlimited doenloads £25 but only 512kb/s
    no complaints.
    I'd also recommend plus net and pipex.

    freedom2surf, £24/month, uses the ADSL MAX service (upto 8Mbit, depending on phone line & distance) and has a 50Gb limit a month.

    I used to be with Zen but I got fed up of their ridiculous home user pricing scheme. Now it's upto 8Mbit (using MAX) with a 20Gb cap for £25 a month. The 50Gb cap service will cost you an extra £10 a month.

    This must apply to new customers, I migrated to Zen after I got capped by plus net, they promised me they had no plans to introduce capping - and haven't capped me yet. I'm moving house soon so looks like I'll be needing a new ISP too

    Ideally I want to pay no more than £20/month and I'm not that worried about the speed.
