Are you using Eclipse Broadband in the UK?

Is it any good?

Does it interfer with Peer 2 peer?

Has it limited you in any way?

Have you had any problems with it.

I need to get away from AOL and am looking at lots of ISP's. So far Eclipse looks pretty good but I'd like a few personal recomendations before I jump.

I have used Eclipse for over 3 years and have been very happy so far. Good customer service, phone & email plus on site and have been getting on average approx 4Kbps, although at times it has slowed to below 2 but have got nearly 6 at quiet times. On a monthly contract at £14.99. Cannot comment re P2P as I dont use it. I may be biased as am in Exeter, which is where Eclipse is based and started out years ago when I had them on dial up.

do you mean 4mbps not 4kbps as this seems extraordinarily slow!

  iscanut 14:45 17 Jan 2008

Yes, my typing is not what it should be. 4Kbps is even slower than the old dial up !!! My apologies.

Sorry about the typo error...Eclipse is fast enough for me and has proved to be reliable.

Hi Pastor Joe you might like to check out the click here first for its reviews but I can't see nothing about Eclipse also while your over there do a Broadband Checker and see what services u can get and post back here.

In your link, if you click on ISP List, you will find Eclipse is listed. It does exist !!

  Pastor Joe 17:44 17 Jan 2008

I can get 6.5Mb/s, it says.

  iscanut 17:47 17 Jan 2008

Although I recommend Eclipse, many do not, so it is a matter of personal judgement. I should hate it if you signed up on my say so and then got rubbish service ! Take your time deciding. I have heard good reports about ZEN

.. but not anymore. The only problem I had with Eclipse was that file downloading was no where near the speed my connection could do. I never got above 400kb/s downloading no matter what I did. Same really with P2P.

Still there always sorted out any problems and with monthly contracts you can also try it for a month.

Nuts

Woops so it is I need new glasses!!
