onetel speed and email

This onetel i have is driving me crackers.
It takes ages to download emai (thais if it downloads at all) and the bb connection so slow.

I used to use One Tel, but found the connection too slow. Although I had to pay my phone bill to One Tel, I used Clara as my ISP. Only problem was finding a 1p / minute phone number for dialup.

I use onetel and it is ususally very fast (BB) and have no problem downloading email although there appears to be a a problem with Email today.

Quote from the OneTel site,

Broadband status:-

Mail Server (e-mail) = Delays with delivery of mail.

That explains you problem with mail.- (note: ordinary dial up e-mail is working fine).

I use the Onetel 1p per minute service as a backup and have nothing but praise for it

I have had Onetel since its beginning and although at times it does slow down a bit, it is cheap though and useful as a backup ISP

Thanks Switcher & anchor I thought I had messed my E-mail up (Onetel) did'nt know how, usually I find Onetel pretty good.Hopefully things will be O.K. tomorrow. Sorry that you find Onetel slow gilla good luck anyhow.

Like Pappyon, I use OneTel dial-up 1p/min as a back up service.

I find their speed equally as good as any other dial-up service.

I use their phone service too; excellent and cheaper than BT.
