oops! Plusnet is down again

I spoke too soon when I said it was running OK again a few days back. After being satble for about a week, its down again. I believe BB consumers are held to ransom as the choice in the UK is pretty limited and they are all about the same. Sorry state of affairs really.

In which way? One major ISP guide list has almost 100 ADSL ISPs and this is by no means exhaustive.

Add cable and similar services on to that and it hardly appears to be limited.

What's more there's news that BT is spending more than £1bn in Scotland to bring in 21CN technology over the next five years, plus upgrading more than 1,000 exchanges to deliver up to 24MB across the UK - BT estimates that around half the UK will have the service by the start of 2008.

I'm now with TalkTalk and consistently getting a 1.8-1.9MB service on "up to 2MB" - that's better than Tiscali achieved for much of the 15 months I was using its BB service.

Even Tiscali's dialup service didn't deliver the same speeds as Pipex on my system (I had both services having been with Pipex since 1996).
