Broadband Prices

Ok people...I think its time we all told each other how much we shell out for our broadband connection...make sure you state the ISP, the price per month, capped or uncapped(GB usage), whether or not you got a free modem and activation or if you bought your own modem and paid activation. also how long have you had the broadband and whats the service been like overall.

Mine is with a company called Central Point, activation was about £60 (now half price), didnt buy their modem got my own (its BT!), 1Meg uncapped connection at a low price of £25.99 a month and its not a 12month contract, its 3 months and service has been great since I was with them in May 2004. and their email response is brilliant too and they are good in helping customers out. and the speed is just fantastic! :) so no complaints from me so far...

aol £29.99 a month 1mb.

uncapped no charge for modem or activation.

very few probs with isp.

great download speed.

been with the 1mb b/b for about 9or 10 months.

over all no complaints and providing it stays the same as now no plans to change.

£15.99/pcm Tiscali 3x, advertised at 150kbps, but i am sure it runs somwhat faster. someone once posted a link to a speed test site. But i cant remember the addy.

Free modem, but not very good, so got my own.

£25 set up fee.

Happy with it. I gets what i pay for. SO cant complain, and wont.

would recomend to those on a budget, and pages still load nice and fast, much better that dial up.

Virgin £24.99 per month - 512Kb - no activation fee - supplied my own modem.

Had it about 6-8 months (not totally sure) - monthly contract

Connection is fine - email support diabolically slow but rarely needed. Telephone to Tech Support is very good but expensive.

Excellent service, Modem & connection cost £90 then. Now much cheaper. Good contention ratio.

Very happy.

wanadoo £17.99 512 kb d/l 2 GB cap (not in force yet) free modem, filters & activation

not going for the upgrade to 1 GB - no point for surfing which is my main activity (and the kids on messenger!)

have used the speedtouch 330 modem driefly when my netgear dg834g router/modem was faulty - modem worked great.

no problems yet

will reassess other offers at the end of the 12 month contract period.
