Best value for money Broadband

  instant^mash 19:43 16 Mar 2003

Hello all,

I use NTL 600k and am pefectley happy with it (AUP excepted)

A friend of mine is interseted in getting ADSL but the catch is he doesnt want to go over £20 per month...

I've tried extolling the virtue of an extra £4 per month and Pipex but..

Apparently Gio internet have a cheap deal but are they any good?

Can anybody advise?

Thanks in advance,

I assume that NTL is out for your friend?
If you enter "Gio" into the search box in the helproom section it should throw up previous threads.
Will add tho' (you pays yer money.......)
Good luck.

Have been using Gio Internet since January, only had one down and that was overnight on Sat Night/Sun morning. But it was up and running by the time their support team came in. I am also 10k from the exchange but the Speed Test on has been more than comparable, will do a test tonight and post results.

Only one downside, seems to take forever to get customer support (0870) number these numbers are used as a certain % cost of the call is paid to the company. However email take about 2/4 days.

I also bought my own ADSL Router as I have a home network.

Basically though I am more than satisfied, for the ultimate use Nildram. I use Nildram at work and they are seriously the business.
