best broadband connection?

  gudda96 16:19 10 Oct 2003

Can anyone suggest the best BB as I have applied for FS BB and should have been connected on the 7th but it has not happened.

I am ringing/writing/e-mailing both BT and FS to no avail.

Would like to change both of them I THINK.

Take a look at click here and it may lead you in the right direction.

Do not expect a rapid response to e-mails from the big boys, they tend to reply when you have gone away.

Who is your landline supplier and where you connected on the date promised.

Quite a comprehensive site that but a bit bewildering for me. If you are experienced in BB do you have any tips. I read in the Daily Express that BT are going to be asked questions about them slowing up the final connection. As I said, they have slowed mine as it should have been the 7th.


Thank you all for answering.

Try Blueyonder if you have cable in your area as i have never had any problems in 6 months.

Pipex £23.44 per month click here

I have only just been admitted to the BB institute.

Have a look at click here and you will see that I have had fun.

Connection was absolutely trouble free, in the end.

Have only been connected for a couple of days but so far am extemely happy with it.

If you have read my thread you will have seen that I chose Pipex, the main reason being that it supplies all that I will need at a reasonable price. They also seem to have a good reputation, and that must mean something these days.

But only time will tell!!

Good hunting!

Been with pipex for about 1 year now and never had any problems, also just about the cheapest £23 and pence VAT inclusive.

It was easy to set up just following the instructions sent by e-mail and snail-mail,
