I have been with my current provider for approx. 3yrs but now wish to go to a cheaper and hopefully faster company. I currently have a package deal that includes phone calls and up to 2mb B/B and have been pleased with the service they provide. My B.T exchange tells me that I have been able to receive up to 8mb from Jan 1 and as my current provider has a max of 2mb I thought I would shop around and have found 4 that can do the same package with up to 8mb. My questions are.... I have one email address with Hotmail so will I be able to carry on using it.... secondly....Can I use my current Dlink Wireless108GMIMO ASDL2/2+ Router or do I have to use the Router supplied by a new provider. Any help would be very appreciated
Re: using your own router, I would say it depends on your choice of provider. Most ISP's seem OK with you using your own hardware but Sky have it in their t&c's that you must use the router they supply. I would contact any prospective ISP's about this prior to committing yourself just to be sure.
Thanks for coming back.I am currently with OneTel who provided a Speedtouch modem when I joined them but I replaced this with my D Link when I went wireless.I am thinking about a new connection with either Pipex or Tiscali after doing my homework on all avail.
I think they are part of TalkTalk/ Carphone warehouse empire as you say. I have checked OneTel website and I think the 8meg is only applies to Talktalk etc customers. Onetel don't mention anything about up to 8megs upgrade for their customers. I am ringing them first tomorrow am and checking before moving.
