[access-uk] Re: Extra software with broadband packages

Hi,

I would stick away from BT Broadband, Tiscalli and Wanadoo for this
reason, as well as the obvious AOL.

If you have your own ADSL equipment (such as a router), however, then no
software CD is required at all, as you just give the router the details
and it manages the connection.

The other ISPs who provide a USB model will give you software, but just
for the DSL modem (i.e, Plusnet do this).

Andrew.

Subject: [access-uk] Extra software with broadband packages

 From recent messages on the list (including one yesterday, which I 
accidentally deleted!), I have got the impression that some ISPs 
provide CDs which install antivirus, anti spyware etc. software in 
addition to what is needed to access their service.  I think that BT 
Yahoo was mentioned.
I intend in the near future to switch to Broadband and a new ISP, but 
want to choose my own defences - and particularly to remain a 
"Symantec free zone".

I would appreciate any advice on ISPs who make such a requirement 
difficult if not impossible.

Douglas
