I'm at present with BTopenworld, had no real problems with them the last 15 months.I'm moving home on 10th January 2003.As it's not possible to move my broadand account over to new address. I've had to cancel the BTopenworld account and they say I've to open a new one at new address.

So before I tie myself into a 12 month contract,have any of you any advice about the following ISP providers I've been looking at.

Bluebolt (currently offering free modem/connection)

Or if you know of any special offers that are available.

Any comments/advice about these providers would be most grateful.

btw, Btopenworld are to collect my modem, which I was lead to understand was mine when the engineer installed my adsl line.

if you are in an NTL or Telewest area give them a shout, im on NTL with now probs and cheaper than BT and im sure they'll be around for ages (even with their debt mountain)

I've been with Pipex since last April and I've been very pleased with them indeed.

Sorry I forgot to say cable is not available in my area. so NTL and Telewest are non starters.


BT openworld say in email that the modem is theirs and they are to collect it.They even confirmed this in a telephone call I made to them.

Thanks to everyone else for there comments.

Nildram and Zen seem to have a very good reputations,as Paul2002 said check out

I`ve been with Pipex for 10 months and had no problems.

Tiscali have a special offer on at the moment with free connection,no idea what their service is like.
