I changed BT Broadband 0.5mb to unlimited Pipex 2mb - and yes the speeds are great. The only problem is when I send a file to a friend with speed 20-30kilo it totally kills my download speed from 100-230kilo to about 30-50kilo, never had this with BT. But its ok anyway, how often do you send anything to anyone :P. I had just one downtime for about 1-2 hours but it was propably BT cause. Anywhay Im very happy with Pipex so far, and I dont think that I will have to deal with them at all.
that at last you have your upgrade Kate - especially after your abortive attempt to go with Bulldog.
My own home connection has recently been upgraded from 1Mb to 2Mb free of charge by BT, and I'm bound to say that the speed increase isn't that dramatic. It's a question of 'how fast is fast?' and to be honest I felt that the 512k to 1Mb difference was more marked.
Enjoy the speed - there'll be more to come before long I think.
