Hi,Is there anyone out there using the above broadband if so can you assist me,Ive been using this service now for about 6yrs,1stly it was freeserve 2ndly it went to wanadoo,now its orange.I,m paying £17-99p per month for a 2mg broadband they want to offer me 8mg but the area where i live bt lines are not good enough for 8mg.Anyway i went to orange site and did a speed test today at 1340hrs and the results were.Downstream 1.8Mbps & Upstream 0.2Mbps.Now these figures dont mean a lot to me but can someone please put me on the correct track to see if i'm getting what i'm paying for.Thanks daiol.
i have been with orange ages, 1st i was homestarter, which i believed was 6gb download, now i'm on something called broadband plus, which i'm told you can only go on if your already a customer, i pay £12 a month & get local rate tech support calls which is important to me (which you don't get with Homestarter), but only 2gb download allowance!
Fruitbat, is it now 6?, as i did initially use a lot of youtube & was charged extra on my bill?.
I have been with Orange since the freeserve era too, I now have the upto 8 meg package with unlimited download via a livebox. My speeds are usually around 5.5 - 6 meg during the quiet periods and I am at the far end of the line from the exchange, approx 4km as the crow flies. This is in the Manchester area which does help being a big city. I have had very few problems with Orange so I suppose I am lucky really.
