click here and take your pick.By the way I took the £19.99p option from Tiscali, which doesn't rate very highly., and I am very satisfied.

I pay £24.99 a month for 512Kbps with all costs (modem etc) included, it's cheaper if you pay for them up front but as I'm disabled I couldn't. It's from PlusNet who have an amazing amount of deals, mine is the EasyStart package. They always perform well in the online tests as rawprawns link. click here HTH TR

I have a similar usage to you and have used Metronet click here for seven months and my highest bill is £12.50.First class telephone service if needed.

I hate to contradict RAWPRAWN but I would advise against Tiscali. My sister in law arranged to get Tiscali. The modem and set up kit arrived and she began to set it up. no Joy. I went over and tried all OK except for " no dial tone " error. several times a day for the next 3 weeks she tried to contact Tiscali. I sent, on her behalf, no less than 20 emails none of which elicited a reply. It transpires that Tiscali did not activate the line. Now 6 weeks on she is with Blueyonder
/Telewest and a happy bunny. Tiscali still have not been in touch.

Have you had a look at Freeserve, now Wanadoo?

For what you want I would have thought their 512k for £17.99 per month would suffice. There is a maximum on download of 2 Gb per month.

I am not speaking from personal experience as I am on their old terms of £27.99 per month.
