Help With a Dial-Up ISP?

  Pc-cillin 01:25 19 Feb 2003

I am not asking this question to poo poo any ISP.

A relative of mine has got a Dial-up Internet Connection. ((Whsmith), I myself had the same, until I went NTL BB( Stop Giggling)). And it is a nightmare to get on the net between 7-9 at night (WHSMITH). Is this normal? I didn't go on to the Net at that time.

So can you recommend a DIAL-UP ISP for her?

I thought of Freeserve Anytime?.

Can you give her some pointers?

I have used Lineone/Tiscali for about 3 years.Always connects first time,whatever the time, and never really had any problems over that length of time.Would recommend it without doubt. Click on click here for more details. A couple of friends of mine use Freeserve, but I still prefare Tiscali.

I have used "surfanytime" for around 18 months now, you get 4 HOUR cutoff rather than the usual 2. I have had no problems connecting whatsoever.

I used them before going on Broadband, and found them very good.

1p/min dial up, or £12.99/month "anytime".

Like spuds, I switched from Virgin to Tiscali and have rarely had a problem connecting at any time of day. For some business people, the day time service (free calls between 8 am and 6 pm weekdays) for £4.99 a month is great. Until my area can get broadband that is!

Try bt openworld. I had very few problems. Recently opted for the pipex free modem offer and upgradedto b/b.

Like spuds I use Lineone/Tiscali and have done for about two years without a glitch. No problems connecting at any time. Would recommend them without reservation.

No probs with Freeserve Anytime been with them for ages now.............I just want broadband, they say I'm to far from exchange.

I use AOL and have never had a probolem connecting in 2 years.

The only probolem is that it's more expensive than freeserve.

Tiscali...used since day one of screaming net. Great speed and connect first time 99.9% of the time. Excellent.
