Hi everyone
As a complete novice to broadband(finally catching up with the rest of the world)I'm looking for a bit of straight forward info on th e subject.
I am currently using orange as my provider who are giving me a 2 meg speed and a 2gb download limit.
No idea what this means,is it good or bad.
Any advice will be gratly recived

It should be quite sufficient unless you decide to download a lot of Movies or Music, spend hours Gaming on line, or use one of those Skype phones all day.

2MB speed is not bad, 2GB downloads should be sufficient. If you needed more I'm sure that they'll upgrade you, for a small consideration, of course.

If you intend to watch TV via the Internet then 2GB will not be sufficient.

I haven't time for that but I'm sure that others will.
