[access-uk] Re: more broadband servers?

It's only a drawback if you're not happy with them and you want to change. 
I contacted them last year to ask for a migration code and they gave me a 
better deal.  The deal is the same as the introductory £14.99 unlimited so 
I'm going to try it again soon.

>> Some very good advice from Tristram.  To help you, I will tell you about

>> 1. £14.99 is pretty competetive but I think Plusnet is cheaper.
>> 2. It is unlimited download at 1meg.
>> 3. The equipment and connection is free.
>>  4. You have to set up the modem yourself and support is, so I have been

>> 5. It is pop3 email.
>> 6. Tiscali uses Windows software.
>> 7. I'm happy with Tiscali but I haven't tried any other broadband
