Had a phone call today from NTL asking if I would like to change ISP over to them from Freeserve, at the moment I have Freeserve anytime, the conversation was that I paid £15 a month for phone calls and have any time internet connection for free. Any advice from anybody who uses NTL, about their service or costs, only it sounds a good deal, or is it too good to be true?
Be a little cautious here, with the double company involvement. I subscribe to Tiscali via BT Surftime arrangement.BT is going to change this arrangement in June.This service which I have had in the past was economical, but it now looks as though a price increase is due very shortly by both companies.This will make the arrangement for me, more expensive.
LEGRAND has it right - - you pay £15 a month for anytime internet access - but you get £15 worth of free calls - -calls costing 3p a minute peak, 2p a minute evenings and 1p a minute weekends - - -same cost to phone, say Glasgow as phoning nest door. You still have to pay your line rental to BT though - -ntl calls routed through smart boxes.
i was on NTL dial up before going over to broadband and had no trouble with them whatsoever and connection speeds averaged at 52kbps where as i now use BT for work dial up, coz i have to, and they average at 42kbps sometimes 31.5kbps.
