What ISP? 56k Dial up

  simonp1 09:10 07 Feb 2003

I currently use AOL dial up, but the speeds are getting so slow ( my ping is 300 - 999) i am considering moving. I should be getting broadband in the next 3-4 months so i dont wish to have a 12 month contract. I do use the net a lot and at different times so im looking for a fixed monthly fee. I really would like a faster isp. As there are plenty of 56ker's still around, who would you recomend? Telewest or Ntl are not in my area.

ntl world via a bt line is £15 a month for unlimited access plus includes £15 of telephone calls, if you spend over £15 on calls then you are charged the exact amount of calls, call charges are cheaper than bt too, only 30 days notice to cancel, but easy way of getting round that is to downgrade to free telephone service on last billing date

I would suggest, OneTel. I used them in the past, and found them good, and at reasonable cost.

You do not say if you want "anytime" access, or "pay as you go", but OneTel have good prices for both.

1p/minute , or £12.99 month.

I would recommend Freeserve anytime - £13.99 per month.
No call charges, no problems.

Freeserve Any time is currently on offer at £6-99 for the first three months on a monthly contract.

As you going BB soon that would seem to suit you.
