While it may seem about ten years out of date, I was hoping to find out if anyone was still using/ has experience of current dial up internet packages.
To cut a long story short, parents have been happily using unlimited dial up package through Tesco for many years. Service due to be wound up next month. Far too rural to receive anything resembling proper broadband speeds for the prices they are being quoted. Similarly so for mobile signals and data speed.
For the hours they use, a PAYG service would be expensive.
It's taken them a while to get used to the idea of using the internet but they would now be lost without it. I'm trying to sort something out for them, but all reviews on the net are either very out of date or woefully bad.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks in advance
Surely if Tesco, using a third party sub-contractor, could provide a service, then any of the other main ISP's can supply the same as a package for less price?.
Broadband Choices or Martin Lewis's Money Expert might be able to provide some answers?.
Having a general look, it would appear that Plusnet are the only ISP that might have a different rate band for difficult to reach areas, which I cannot understand, that being a BT offshoot company, and BT having the line and exchanges monopoly.
