I have been with this provider for a long time and they are very good.

thanks for the posts

i'm tempted to go with Be, but after putting my tel number and postcode into this site click here I was told 'Congratulations, you are in a broadband enabled area.
However, your line is currently unbundled by an LLU operator such as Be, Bulldog or Easynet (SMPF LLU). Moving to another provider may require a cease and re-provide, which may result in loss of service for up to two weeks.' - which puts me off a bit.

Speed line tests also tell me I can only get 3.5mbs download speeds - so I guess going for Be's 24mb option is pretty pointless - but then again, its £24 a month - which seems similar to all the 8mbs connection prices.

I guess of most importance is unlimited download usage - not because I download like crazy, but because I don't want the hassle of having to worry whether I'm going over my monthly usage limit.

I wish I did. Well, I do actually. I've been trying to sign up to Virgin for the past few weeks. But, despite my neighbours having cable, Virgin tell me that I'm not 'serviceable'. I ask why, they say I'm just not :-(

I know this is just customer services staff typing in my postcode into their postcode checker, and as my address doesn't come up, they just say I'm not serviceable (even though 302, 306, 308 can get it apparently - I'm 310) :-(

Still looking at Be

However, I don't know much about how LLU works, and whether its a good or bad thing to be bundled/unbundled

From earlier.......

So does that mean that if I go with Be there'd be some kind of delay? or not?

thanks
