Best broadband/phone package

9 posts in this topic

I'm with Homecall/Pipex, who are starting to annoy me with dodgy billing and 15 minutes of holding to speak to Customer "Service"...

Any recommendations on a decent provider of up to 2mB broadband plus free anytime UK calls?

I'm not going to go VOIP phone yet, unless it's compatible with my new Panasonic phones..

I use them for broadband only and they have been faultless, and that includes a move of property.

Haven't used the phone service, but it's an 0800 number for sales enquiriesso maybe no harm in giving them a call.

I tracked them down using www.adslguide.org.uk and they fared very well in the ratings.

They are competitive on price but not the very, very cheapest. I also question what compromises there are with the very cheapest on the market.

£22.99 including 500 minutes of free phone calls is quite reasonable, especially if they have customer service that actuall answers calls in less than 15 minutes!!!!

However, is there a problem with the 50gB monthly usage limit?

I don't tend to download films or music, but do anjoy abit of Youtube...

And how are Tiscali, as it's a lovely mountain?

not sure how gooda deal that is for £22.99:Not Sure:

I have broadband2go service from them at £15.99 a month with 2.5Gb download included, then pay extra if go over the 2.5Gb. But it's only another £2-3 for another 2.5Gb and I've never even got close. Admittedly I never download music or films, but watch the occasional video, quitea lot of YouTube and some internet radio.

With the broadband2go service you get the 500 minutes free. If you went with Nildram you could try the cheaper service, see how much you are downloading and then switch if it works out cheaper. Should be easy to do.

Additionally my Nildram package is monthly, so if it ever becomes uncompetitive you can jump ship easily instead of waiting to the end of the contract.

I shall investigate the Nildrems... BT reckon I can have 2mB here, but at the moment we're only on 576kBps!
