keep getting leaflets through the door to convert to bulldog broad band with 4meg adsl and phone line rental all for £40 per month.

I am thinking of swaping my bt phone line and 512 adsl pipex adsl.

Is there any present forum memebers made the switch or have this service can report on good and bad experiences with bulldog as the leaflets look good.

I found a few reviews on the net re problems during sept, anyone know if things have improved with bulldog.

I am with bulldog 512k and it is working fine at the moment and I did not have any problems Aug/Sept or Oct.

thank you for the reply, I rang their number but the foriegn sounding person on the other end gave the impression he new little of the service or how it worked, just in case it was another call centre in india i was looking for a responce from a user like yourself. I did not want to be put off by previous reports on the internet incase they were now history and a good service is now in place.

I have had only 1 problem which was in the first week of the connection - 1 phone call to their techs - said thought it was a bt line problem and would call me back - less than 3 hours later they called me back and said bt had corrected the problem. It has been fine since then. Only thing is that they still charge for the line activation unlike some others. I find this annoying as the previous owner of my place had an adsl connection so they had paid but I still had to.

thank you for the replies, the free phone is the one i rang to speak with sales. a free phone is a good idea you dont mind any long waits when its free.

Thanks for the info about this service... I phoned the free phone number and was told its currently only available in central London, it will be rolled out to the rest of the country late 2005.
