[access-uk] Re: Service Providers

Hi Andy,

Definately!  The £24.99 I think was the older package which they have now 
changed to a newer package.  I think the package you are on currently is now 
£21.99 a month, and if you did not use the features like static IP, the larger 
webspace etc you could move down to £14.99 a month.

Thanks.
Andrew.

Andrew - I'm with Plusnet, paying 24.95 per month; I'd like to stay with 
them, but am wondering what I'd be giving up, if I went with their 14.95 
package--I don't understand things like static IP, and you referred to other 
services that the more expensive packages provide, so I'm not sure what I'm 
getting for the higher price, and if I really need all that stuff. If you 
could explain the difference I for one would really appreciate it, as it 
would be great to save some dosh on this one:]

Andy

Hi,

Telewest only works if you ahve cable in your area.  As i say Plusnet do an 
unlimited package for £14.99 if you don't want other services like static IP 
etc.

Here are some links for you:

Plusnet: http://www.plus.net
Zen internet: http://www.zen.co.uk
Metranet: http://www.metranet.co.uk
Freedom To Serf: http://www.freedom2surf.net/

Bulldog is another one, but they don't have a 100% press rating: 
http://www.bulldogbroadband.com/

I use Andrews and Arnauld, http://www.aaisp.net.uk, but they are more of a 
business ISP really, and give more features in the way of IP addresses and 
tunnels etc, and most people aren't heavy downloaders.

I really wouldn't use Wanadoo, as everyone who has used them that I know of 
has had problems with their phone support, and I had real problems setting 
up one of their wireless packs for someone.

One other thing that people do if they are heavy downloaders is go with AOL 
(I don't know how much the broadband is, but they go with the simple package 
which doesn't give them many extra AOL features), and then use a router to 
allow them to connect without the rubbish software.

Hope this helps.
Andrew.

Hi Andrew,
Thanks for that info. I have logged onto the plusnet site. They are
adequate, I suppose, but I still didn't like the fact that you are limited.
I also checked into Freeserve and, again, found that you are limited. Then I
came across Telewest and was very surprised. I liked them a lot. They
offered TV services, telephone services, and, hooray, unlimited broadband at
a very resonable price. Unfortunately, they didn't cover Helensburgh on the
firth of Clyde. I then checked on Virgin, which possibly does do
Helensburgh, but they too limit the user. I'm used to 10MB download speed
and no limit, so I might find being limited quite restrictive. At the moment
it looks like Freeserve, the wana do people will get my phone call later
next week. And what is this... Wanna do, anyway. Are they Australian? Some
kind of cross between a wallaby and a kangaroo?
Yes, I'm moving to Scotland. Well, someone has to take over from Rangers
manager, Alex McLeish and I aim to fill out an application.

Peter
