    Broadband Needed

    Hello

    I need some broadband urgently it must meet these requirements:
    - Speed 1MB +
    - No Download Limit
    - Static Ip Address
    - £18 A Month Or Under

    It cannot be Tiscali because for some reason or other they can't get it to my house because it is to old :?

    Doesn't anyone have any suggestions please?

    Re: Broadband Needed

    I've never heard of people having success with anyone other than BT (who provide my home broadband) and zen(a bit expensive, but seriously on the ball - and waaaaay less inept call centre staff than bt)...

    All i ever hear from people with orange, talk talk, tiscali, aol, etc etc is about how rubbish thier connection is.

    I deffo recommed bt for most people, and zen for the geeks who want 8 static ip's at home... odd i know, but some people do...

    Re: Broadband Needed

    i have just come off the phone to Zen, they use them at work they seem to be good. The only problem is the price im not paying for it you see. The good thing with Zen the HQ is only up the road from me so if something goes wrong i can go up there and have a go lol.

    Does anyone know any other place please?

    PlusNet are excellent - just taken over by BT but still the custome service etc provided by original staff. £15 a month for what you want too - or cheaper all in deals from a tenner.

    Re: Broadband Needed

    I used Zen for years but have recently switched to ADSL24. They're one of the Entanet resellers (like UKFSN) and are a competent, inexpensive ISP.

    You can have unlimited 512k for £23.99:

    http://adsl24.co.uk/broadband_home.php

    At the price you're asking 'unlimited' is going to be shaped and come with an AUP.

    The 'Home30' pack is pretty damn near 'unlimited' for £19.99...

    Re: Broadband Needed

    @mark & Geoff the problem there is that there is a usage limit, I need unlimited.

    @leon thanks for that that might be an option.

    I have been looking at PIPEX at the "Pipex DSL Flex 50" http://www.pipex.net/pg.asp?broadband what are your experiences with them? I have a domain name registered with hem they seem pretty good.

    I'd take a close look at their 'fair usage policy'...

    Re: Broadband Needed

    If you want real 'unlimited' you'll need to buy a business package rather than a residential package. There will be hidden limits in the ISP's residential service AUP as leon mentions.

    Of course a business package will blow your budget.

    Re: Broadband Needed

    I'm with Pipex and can highly recommend them!

    Even thou they have a AUP, it has never bothered me. Remember there are ways to cloak your downloading. Especially "trial" bittorrent downloads.


    Not bad at £24 either.
