Getting Freeseve BB - a little tip

  JACC 15:44 03 Mar 2004

I've just recently installed Freeserve BB 512kbps, using W98se .If there is anybody out in the wild blue yonder thinking of it i can save them some time,money and hair pulling.I tried to install mine and the modem was not recognised , so i phoned Freeserve and we tried everything but the kitchen sink . The modem is a SpeedTouch 330 so i went onto their site , had a nose about and decided to download the lateset drivers . Well what do you know it worked .The people at FS were very good ( Justin and Craig , just incase their boss trawls this site ) but if you use W98 save yourself a lot of time and download the new drivers for the modem first . Hope this helps someone . Oh...BB is the bees knees .

Big ben strikes again!!! ,
everybody at sometime has a gripe at things that other people never have any hassle with . Maybe it's that your uncle suffered with FS at some point ? Freeserve BB is by far the most popular being used at the moment so it must be doing something right .But i'll let you know if i have any hassle .

Thanks for the post JACC. I have a W98se PC too & should come in helpful when I join the BB revolution.

Also, wanted to say it's nice to know that there're people like you who gives credit where it's due & informs us when service is good. Well done!

Cannot stand the ravers & ranters, I have to say, no matter how bad their experiences. Suppose it's their lack of perspective & bad attitude that really puts me off.

Every one has a bit of a rant now again, but in the future can you please leave out the swear words???

Wasn't directing my 'disgust' towards you as such - t'was more of a general statement. I've seen much worse recently where the FE's had to step in - not very nice. Many thanks for the apology all the same : )

I'm with MidgetMan too. PLEASE folks: keep it clean, sarcasm-free, non-vengeful & as pleasant as you can - for ALL of us.
