HI all. I have been waiting ages for this. Finally BT are enabeling the exchange in Amleside on the 3rd Nov so i can finally get Broadband. I am currently with Wanadoo for my dial up connection. Do i stick with them or what ?

I play alot of games and will play online alot. I am looking for an unlimited connection. Has anyone got any personal references that i can investigate ?

I think that wanadoo do a 30gb monthly usage alowance but not an unlimited. Would this be enough for extensive online game play ?

Thanks for looking. Craig.

Give Plusnet a try, cheapest ISP very good service. 1 Mb Broadband from £14.99 or choose your own limit.

I've used 4 b/b providers and now I'm staying with Metronet click here You only pay for upload/download and a max of £23 pm, but my average is £14 pm. Plus their support is excellent.

Thanks for your comments. I will look into them both.

I've just migrated to PlusNet 1MB for £14:99, monthly contract, 1GB per month. There's a small extra charge if the limit is exceeded, and you can easily monitor your usage.

Technical Support is a local phone call and you can see how many calls are in the queue.

You also get dial-up at local call rate if your broadband fails.

All in all, a very good package.

Migrated to Plusnet 2 months ago from Virgin. Very happy customer service is spot on. Reliability is very good. Would recommend without hesitation.

I use NDO click here
Their tech support(if you need it) is excellent.

We use the soho package with guranteed uptime and have had no probs at all.

wow, cheers all. Plenty to go on. I have also herd bad reviews of AOL, the packages sounds good, unlimited BBand but all the bunf that comes with it and the amount of resources that AOL takes up. I will stay clear of them. Thanks again.
