i'm with aol and they are now increasing the bb speeds for the same price as the old speed..check here click here
for the aol pricing plan..thats a 2mbit connection for £29.99!!!!

Thanks for that.
Even though my telephone line will ONLY support 1mb speed, I have just confirmed with AOL that when the speed upgrades come about, my current Platinum service will be downgraded to Gold saving me £5 a month!
I *won't* be losing anything as I will still be on 1mb.
The new 2mb service is going to be Platinum, hence the reason for my 'downgrade' name wise not speed wise! LOL

According to the Mail on Sunday's Financial Mail supplement, Tiscali offers 512kbps broadband at £15.99 and the 2MB service for the same charge...:-)

seems cheap enough,but what are the resrictions on the connections!!as you may allready know aol have no restrictions not capped etc..regards karl

The Tiscali 2Mbps connection has a 2GB per month useage limit.

yes, I've read about the AOL upgrades. I'm with Pipex, and I've just emailed them to ask when they're going to follow suit. I'm currently using a 512kb connection, but the AOL 1MB service has become attractive.


AOL £24.99
Pipex £33.99

They're going to have to do something!

Ive been with Pipex since June 2003 and while a satisfied customer I have also just emailed them saying I'm going to migrate to Tiscali 2mb @ 15.99 or Prodigy 2mb @ 14.99! Both with free activation etc. Ive basically said to them "what are you gonna do" or give me a MAC number to cancel and leave to a much cheaper service. After all if you can go from 27.99 1mb to 14.99 2mb with the same capped limits, why not??

  Cybermaxx 22:11 07 Feb 2005

Exactly! At the end of this month my first year with Pipex will be up. The modem is mine now. Compete or lose another customer. Their decision.

I presumed it was an error but, it seems, it's an introductory offer:
