my head is swimming - I am about to go broadband and cannot make up my mind as to which ISP! I am a pensioner so cost is important but so is service.

With Plusnet at the moment but they want to charge £93 to upgrade from dialup. My download needs are modest but would like 2GByte allowance.

Would appreciate any good advice

When I last compared Pipex, BT and Tiscali, Pipex was the clear leader in all areas. I can thoroughly recommend them and have been with them for years...

I too can recommend Pipex. Excellent connections and price.

I'm very pleased with Metronet 1Mb.

Higher start up costs but cheaper in the long run.

Madasafish is part of Brightview which also runs Freenetname and about 6 others

Service and reliability are good and current prices start at £17.99 per month for 256 unlimited or same for 2mb with 2gb monthly limit, which should be enough for many. Free modem etc and usually offers cheaper rate or free for first months
