Hello and thanks for reading!

Signed up for the Tiscali 150 kb/s broadband service on the 23rd April, and am Still awaiting delivery of the Modem pack : - Just wonder what the approx. delivery time is? Tiscali not very helpful in this respect.

Best regards all,

philspace.

Not sure how this will affect Tiscali as an ISP but in the business section of SKY news this afternoon it stated that dealing in [Tiscali] shares have been suspended due to Tiscali's high debt problem in investing too heavy in broadband. j.

I have used tiscali dial-up for quite a while and found it to be quite good. I recently upgraded to broadband, it has just come into the area but tiscali was not an option due to circumstances.

The only grump I have with tiscali is that I signed up with my credit card. On cancellation, way before the end of the payment month, they took an extra months payment from my account.

I may have been foolish to give them my credit card number and should have plumped for direct debit. I would just say, read all your statements and double check.

Have a look click here , click Compare then tick up to 6 boxes - if you compare Tiscali with the likes of Demon, Zen, Nildram & Pipex you'll see that they are poorer in all areas. I'm with Pipex (512K) & can recommend them.

I'm with Tiscali Broadband and can't say I've had any problems but I've only had it for 3 months so its a bit early to say. If you do a search in the Consumerwatch you'll probably find a few threads about them.

I'm on Tiscali 150k, took about 14 days from order to delivery of modem.

I have no problems with the actual ADSL service, but just pray, if you sign up, that you never have to contact their customer services (one word - dire)!

Have had Tiscali 150 @ 15.99 for two weeks now, modem came in 8 days setup was no problem. It did what it said on the tin, when I look at the box that comes up when you hover over the two little monitors on the task bar, when it is conected it reports 2.3 Mbps. I know someone who is on the 256 @ £19.99 and he is getting 589kbs using the same method. As far as I am concerned it is grand.

September 2000 was the last mention, I could find, of suspending Tiscali share dealing. I know their shares are down but didn't think it was that bad.
