Virgin used to do a monthly contract, but since taking over NTL I don't know whether that is still the case.

Metronet offer a PAYG Broadband service, there is a minimum fee of £11.75 on a monthly contract.

All these ISP's - Zen, ADSL24 IDNet,Vivaciti, Newnet offer 1 month contract. There are some reviews here click here

Remember good and reliable may not always be cheap though.

anyone know of a broadband supplier that doesn't charge a activation charge (usually £40+).
I will be buying my own modem (I'm also worried about compatability issues if I buy my own???)

I don't want a 12 month contract as I might be moving within the year and I would like the freedom of moving to another supplier if the one I choose turn out to be a nightmare!

I've been surfing around and some sites say no activation fee but if you do not have broadband then BT charge £52.88 (ie ADSL24). My flatmate has free broadband with her orange mobile (rather unreliable and limited use) so does this mean that I don't have to pay for activiation... what exactly do they have to do for this money???

I'm confused! I just want broadband (fairly heavy use) paid monthly and no contract. (if free calls also good!)

any help would be appreciated and/or pointers to a website that explains such things to a newbie.

I don't think such an ISP exists I'm afraid. I think it's either free activation or a 12 month contract or a buy out as they want to claw the connection fee back somehow...understandable I suppose.

My current supplier Be* are currently offering free connection and if you take the Be* Unlimited package the contract is 3 months. It's not that clear though whether the free connection includes new connections rather than migration but if they are available at your exchange you could email them and ask.
