Broadband for analogue cable customers

  phil.s 00:57 22 Jul 2003

Hi there, can anyone help.

I am one of the unfortunate few who can access only analogue cable services from Blueyonder (Telewest).
This means that I cannot get broadband internet access from my cable TV/telephone services provider.

When I phoned their customer services to inform them of my intention to cancel my contract and move to BT to obtain ADSL Broadband, the advisor said that it should be possible to retain my cable service and still obtain broadband using a microwave service provider. Has anyone any experience of this or was he simply trying to stop me moving to BT?

Also, I want wireless broadband and have noticed that BT can supply it for £250 including wireless adaptors for two PC's. Again, can anyone offer their experiences of this?

Many thanks,

Getting broadband from the 'sky' is expensive. If BT can deliver broadband to your address, that will be cheaper. Their wireless kit will work with other suppliers, also.

Thanks Graham.

Is there a cheaper way of wireless networking or just home metworking?
