Recommendation for ADSL line

  siliconbits 00:27 17 Jun 2004

I am searching a 1mb BB line for my use. I do not live in a cable-enabled region and I would like to escape any setup fee and get the free modem if possible. The cheapest 1Mb that I have got is AOL at £359.88 per year all inclusive.
Bulldog offers a primetime package at £ 275.88 but it is limited and when you add in the 1 year connection, it is only £25 short of AOL.
E7even has a package at £320 but you have to pay everything in a go.
Does anyone of you know of a better package?

I've always been very satisfied with Pipex.

I've always been happy with AOL but many people do not like the intrusive nature of the software.

Any other? As I told previously, I would not like to pay the £50 connexion fees. Which they all do except Virgin

check the pipex site. the solo 500 has no set up fee and a free modem. you only pay for connection if you cancel the contract in the first year.
i have it from last october and never yet had a dropped connection.

Freedom2surf have just lowered there prices by quite a bit, £14.99 for 1Mbit, 1GB download cap but unmetered between 1 am & 6 am. Are stuck with the activation fee and get your own modem but at least you can get what you want rather than a crappy free USB modem.
