Just received the May 2006 edition of PCA mag, and forum regulars have voted, " by some margin " that Telewest is the broadband ISP of the year.

Having Telewest broadband myself, I have no grounds to dispute this decision, but was just wondering what other forum members have to say on this subject.

Regards Joe.

Where was the survey?

I seem to have missed it :-(

  stalion 18:42 10 Mar 2006

same here how many members did not get a vote?.

Is the survey fair as you need cable to get Telewest and, as I understand, it isn’t available to half the country.

Yup, excellent!

I don't remember a poll though.

nope dont remember poll either but i have to agree that telewest do provide an excellent service

This result I guess could show how skewed some polls can be.
Where a cable provider is voted tops, it can only be by users of that provider, on the assumption that competing cable providers would not operate in that region, likewise a phoneline user could not presumably compare their service with cable because, becuase there is no cable service to compare.

Those that do have both cable and phone line would not have NTL and Telewest and phone line connection So who made the comparisions?
This survey I think is a stinker.

Did you not receive an email from PCA requesting your help? around the middle of January.

" PC ADVISOR NEEDS YOUR HELP!

We'd like to find out about your ISP (internet service provider) and your experiences of getting on to the web - the good, the bad and the shoddy. Got any set-up horror stories or tales of angelic helpdesks? Or has it all gone pretty smoothly? Share your experiences with us, and together we can make the world a better place...

For this comprehensive survey of ISPs we need your thoughts on their services, reliability and value for money. "

Did you not do the survey?

Shame on you. :-)

Thanks ed-0 - been through my mail and found it - think that I may even have done it :-)
