When i signed up for lineone (now tiscali) dialup i had to pay for a service called BT surftime.

If i upgrade to broadband do i need this this service or can i cancel it????

Are there any hidden charges when signing for for ADSL in general. As i see it at the moment - u pay the monthly fees, for a modem + filters and sometimes a signup fee. An other costs?

If you ring AOL on 0800 376 5432 they "might" throw in a free modem if you ask them nice. You have to be on an ADSL-enabled exchange, they can tell you. £27.99 a month, no extras.

lots of threads here on broadband but if you are in an NTL enabled area go with them. Free cable modem, faster speeds and all for under 25 of those lovely golden nuggets for the 600k service

Most ISPs are giving the cable modem free for a period of time .:º»[RjA]«º:. BT, NTL, Onyx Net etc all charge different prices for the connection as accord says NTL are just £24.99 for a 600k speed or around £45 for the 1meg. Where BT only give you the 512 connection for a few quid more.
