I do not know if this applies to every Tiscali user, but today I have noticed that I seem to have had a change-over with domain title. Use to get Tiscali.co.uk now seem to have Talk Talk.co.uk/Tiscali.
Another thing that seems to have occurred is the speed. Over the past week or so, I have been experiencing very slow speeds (a past problem). Today the pages are changing virtually instantly.
But yesterday evening and early this morning, I did download a 317MB program that took 6 hours, and should have taken far less.
Being rather cynical, I wonder if this as anything to do with BT, and the promise of better returns from a new owner ;o)
Thanks. The original reason I chose Pipex in about 1989 was that it was my former multinational company's supplier then. I was abroad quite a lot and for the last few years have been too idle to change (e Mail etc) Spam good though. My distance from exchange makes it unlikely I will match your speed...:-( I had a note from Virgin offering a free fibre optic connection based on my post code - when I phoned and told them I live abouts 150 metres down a lane off the main road, their interest faded.Hope the take over improves things, but I won't sign up to anything other than a monthly rolling contract.
Actually Pipex was founded in 1991, a couple of years later - I joined in 1996 (free journalist account rather than £15 a month subscription, although obviously I had to pay internet phone call charges).
I have a PAYG account to this day to maintain my Pipex e-mail address from that time.
Quite right - memory poor. I used to pay about £23 for a 1 Mbps service until about 2 years ago when I switched to the cheaper 8 Mbps, and an additional £7.5 or so before I cancelled dial up.I still kept the rolling one months notice ob broadband though.
