    All depends on your location (both in the country and to the telephone exchange).


    Check with SamKnows - UK Broadband Availability Information

    I would recommended Be/O2 (I'm on the original O2 T&Cs)

    Update!
    Remember to check cashback websites

    We were originally with Supanet (Read up about them..my god) and they were awful to put it nicely. Now with Sky and wireless hasn't dropped out once in 4 months now, it used to drop out every 4 hours with supanet.

    Orange have been very good, very cheap if you have a mobile with them. I was on O2, who were pretty good as well, but I do get faster connection with Orange.

    PlusNet are good on customer service - Today, I phoned to arrange a connection to a brand new house.. the person I spoke to was pleasant, knowledgable about their product and only relieved me of 50 for the new line which has to be pulled-in from the main road 30 mtrs away.. I didn't want to get tied into an 18 month contract - so I am on a 30 day rolling contract for phone and broadband and can cancel at any time..

    I had spoken to BT before calling PlusNet.. Clowns! - I couldn't get them to understand what I wanted and they didn't want to tell me the costs involved..
