I'm with Wanadoodoo ATM, but I'm going to Pipex next month. Since the Freeserve switch, actual connection speeds have gone through the floor.

Still gonna stay with 512 for the moment, as that's the best VFM with Pipex. Don't think that'll be the case in 3 months though. Switched my old man over to them a couple months back with impressive results. Great newsgroup service aswell. :)

Hi M8s

Broadband is getting cheaper day by day. Dial-up may disappear soon. Now BT offers a faster Broadband for home users just £17.99 a month.

Pay for 512kbs - given 1mb by server - problem is that most ISPs were not geared up to the doubling up overnight of bandwidth, so problems still not sorted 3 weeks later :rolleyes:
