I use your first option here in northern ireland and find their service is excellent. there are no outages, no slow speeds, no throttling and a second to none customer service. all helplines are uk based and accessed by std codes (eg 0161) so no expensive calls. also the phone is answered virtually straight away by knowledgeable staff on a 24hr basis. as you knwo they are not the cheapest on the market but what price do you put on a reliable service. in the past i have been down both paths of tiscali and cpw and will not go back. lastly 30 day contract so no long tie ins and no........i don't work for them or any associates
Thanks to all who took time to reply. I have asked a few neighbours they seem to be with Tiscali or BT or Orange and they would not recommend them. As i have never used a package which is capped i dont know if say 30gb peak and 300gb off peak would be sufficent for our needs. three users two computers which would be used for approx 8 hours a day.
