Tiny - Broadband Capability & VFM ???

  Mickey 12345 16:26 06 Jan 2005

I read in a recent article that Tiny were to make available a information sheet instructing buyers how they could stop with their existing broadband suppliers. I believe this has not yet materialised. Also in the Computer shop there was some discussion among the staff as to how difficult it was to achieve this. I am presently with NTL and receive a full Broadband/Phone package which I am happy with.

Can anyone (Tiny even) satisfy me that if I were to purchase one of their machines I could achieve the above.

Finally. Anyone got any first hand user knowledge on the Tiny Monster. Is is the real value for money (delivery charge. service
backup etc) that Timy make it out to be??????????

Hello Mickey

As far as my experience goes with the "supanet" modem it only stops you from choosing your own dialup ISP, it doesnt effect broadband at all

Hope this helps

Hi Mickey 12345,

This has been discussed in a couple of places in this forum.

The modem on our systems is optimised for use with Supanet, however this should have no effect on a broadband connection as this would use either a USB modem or direct though your network port, in the case of NTL more often now a days though your 10/100 port.

However if you would like to de-optimise your modem this is at present possible to do though one of 3 national rate telephone support lines and via both the tiny and the Supanet website.

There has been discussion (so of it within this forum) regarding our continued process to offer alterative ways to de-optimise and this is at present still on going.

Finally, with regard to “Anyone got any first hand user knowledge on the Tiny Monster.” Whatever I say will possibly come out sounding line a sales man, which I try my hardest not to do. So all I can say is ...
