I am finally leaving Tiscali and think that uk online are giving a good deal with their broadband packages but i have done a test on their site to see if they supply BB in my area and the results say that i wiil get speeds around 15mbps with a contention ratio 20:1 or 33:1. what does contention ratio mean.

Contention ratio is the number of people sharing your bandwidth. In my area it is 50.1

I have been using UKOnline for the last two years, seems to work OK, especailly since using router instead of USB modem. They were one of the first to install LLU in local exchanges and hopefully by now have managed to sort out the teething problems which others are still suffering from.
