BT BB or Telewest BB?

  swapper 13:09 24 Jul 2006

It has been suggested to me that I should move from BT Broadband to Telewest Broadband/Telephone etc.
Any comments please? I could save quite a bit of cash if I did, but I wonder about the service.

Telewest service is excellent. I've had TV and phone since the mid 90s and cable broadband since 2001.

Worth looking out for the BT Sky BB battle. Rumours suggest BT may end up going 'free' as well. I've had BT for a number of years now and it's been just fine.

VoG™, thank you.

ArrGee, I have had BT for some years myself now, and I have had a very good service also. but the Telewest package seems very good.

Telewest service is superb imo. As is the broadband speed, TV and phone. click here and find out for yourself regarding them as an isp.

Here on Tyneside, Telewest is miles better than BT, you can also get some good package deals from them

I find B.T fine,,, when it's working,,,,, but customer service leaves a hell of a lot to be desired, actually none existant at times.
Was considering V21,,,, till now,,,, I can't even access their site !

cheers all

I have had there 10mb service for ages and am so impressed

There tech support is second to none and its an 0845 number 23:44 24 Jul 2006

you quote "There tech support is second to none and its an 0845 number"
How do you know that, if the service is so good?

I don't know what BT's tech support is like, because in all the years I've been with them I've never had to use it!

That's how I judge a service.

I find BT very good, when I had to phone support even though the department that I really needed wasn't answering the phone, the person who I speak to (dave) asked what the problem actualy was, and from his own eperience could sort me out any way.....

Sadly I don't have the advange of telewest or any other comapany that provide cable television as well in my area so I can't comment on that part.

But it does sicken me, I get all the adverts on the telly about combaining telly/BB/phone service at a good rate..... :-((((
