Try cable if available in your area, telewest or ntl.

If we could, we'd all be on it! Unlimited downloads for this price don't exist.

Even if you find one that claims this, they will state that it is subject to a "fair usage" policy which will, in practice, limit you.

Still, if you are successful, let us know.

Aol lets me have 1G at £15.99/month as a sweetener after a moan by snail mail that they had not increased from 512m 3 months after they said they would!

No sign of any cap on downloads
Appalling live help from India mercifully not really needed...........

.........If anyone wants to scoop a reward for "introducing a friend" it is possible, but first find the place on Aol, then name the friend. Let Aol send them the CD and hardware if BB, then wait.

If your friend actually becomes contracted with Aol, then in the fullness of time (I'm told) your account will be credited with lotsa money.

My friend is on telewest at £17.99 per month for 2gb speed and no caps on amount downloaded, I am on telewest at 4gb download at £25 per month and no cap limit.

If you are interested in change, have a look at this: click here Go to the line speed tester and, when the new window opens, put in the code "cheaper" (without the "s).

You can get Max BB with a 5 Gb limit for a bargain, 20 GB for £19.99 and soon 50 Gb

These are the same people who run Waitrose BB who just got a Best Buy in Which? magazine. Their support people monitor and contribute in Forums at click here

The only relationship I have with them is as a happy subscriber.

Stay away from Wanadoo/Orange.
Took five months and letters to the Directors before they agreed that they couldn't get their system to work.
Now with NTL.
