[access-uk] Re: Internet service providers

Ok how about this:

If you  are on broadband  I understand  technical support can Log in
directly
to your computer,  and make the Necessary changes  if you agree.

So if it's so easy  for support to do that,  log  in to your Computer,
surely it's easy for any dishonest person to do  same.

Derek,

With dial-up you run the risk of what are known as rogue diallers being 
installed if you accidentally click on a dodgy webpage and/or link. Rogue 
diallers basically redirect your connection to a premium rate number so that

you are paying premium rates rather than local call rates. Broadband does, 
of course have risks, however the instalation of rogue diallers is not one 
of them and with good (free anti-virus) such as Avast and products such as 
the free version of Zone Alarm you can greatly reduce many risks. It is 
(obviously) your choiece but isn't it worth looking at some broadband 
comparison sites to see what deals are out there. In my opinion broadband is

the best solution for the vast majority of people.

BT charges £25 a month  for unlimited broadband!

And I think £14 for up to 10GB  cap!

Anyway,  is I tnot  true that  dial-up is more  secure than broadband.

That is expensive when compared with broadband prices. My unlimited
broadband is only £12 a month and I'm sure I could get a cheaper package if
I really tried.

Well I am with  BT Dial-up
It costs me a flat rate £16 a month and it's for unlimited  access to
Email and  internet.

Given that I do  not download music, books,  movies, pictures,
Games,  dial-up  meets my needs.

I just wish  BT could address the  problem I have right now.

When I try to  download  a  news paper  from Talking papers,
The BT server will  stop  sending the data if the email
Is long.  This problem has only started In past few weeks.
So if say  The Guardian  was 400kb the download stops  when it gets to
About 350kb
Anyone any  idea  why this may  happen.

Regards,  Derek

I used to have dial-up many years ago and Was getting a bill of (at the
highest) £80 a month. I am now with TalkTalk and pay, on average £20 a month

for broadband, free UK landline calls (including 0845 and 0870 numbers). I
would never wish to return to broadband.

Kevin

Hi  All
I am maybe only one on  list that  still uses Dial-up  access
Well it meets my needs.

Anyway,  I  am having a problem that when I try to Download mail
it keeps  stopping  too soon.

BT says  and I quote:


"You are under absolutely no pressure to have broadband
from BT. Moving to another provider for your line wont
take away these issues-it's all the same network which, is owned
by BT Openreach."

Is BT correct to  suggest that  being cut of  from a servier,
Would still  happen  no matter which ISP I am with.


Regards,  Derek
