  CutNpaste 01:20 03 Sep 2005

Hi everybody,
just wanted to know whether this new company called 'Be' is ligitimate.
They're website is click here and they're offer seems to good to be true and it will also be availiable to my exchange aswell.

If any one has witnessed this connection then please plet me know.

It does look to good to be true and now that they have your phone number you might start to get lots of junk calls (the phone equivilent of spam)

You need to be no more than 5.5 KM from the exchange and the rate degrades as you get further away. (This is from Bethere blurb). Not available in all areas as yet.

It is genuine. Lots of info at click here

The high values have become possible due to the introduction of ADSL+. Only available from limited number of ADSL+ ready exchanges.

Not sure how much faster it will be in practice but I am pretty sure you will not be transferring files 24 times faster than with 1Mbps.

most of the people who signed up for bulldog 8mb in my area, have already cancelled their subscription and are going for the 24mb.
