Are you looking for "pay-as-you-go", or an "anytime" connection?.

I used virgin for a short time while I was between BT and NTL and was happy with service and my sister has been with them for years and she is not someone who puts up with anything that she is not happy with.

Any particular reason to not consider Broadband? or is this a back up service?

Rather like Strawballs I used to use virgin and had no particular problems. Also used Tiscali and MSN Freeweb, also no real problems with these either. Much of a muchness these days I think.

Thanks for your answers; don't want broadband at present, have free use at local community centre.

This is for my home.

BT is as good as any for PAYG. However, click here The Plusnet Plus BB package is only £14.99 per month. If you pay a one off £11.75 they don`t tie you to a 12 month contract and you get free modem, activation and set up. Also their helpline is national rates. (Brilliant Service too) Is it really worth going for anytime on 56K at these prices?

I agree with Taff36, the Plusnet Plus package is very good value, and compares very favourably with the cost of an ordinary anytime dial-up package.

However, if you are interested in a cheaper limited 56k package, have a look at those on OneTel.
