I guess i meant the cheapest reliable provider.

My sons didn't bother with internet in their digs, they relied on the facilities provided by the uni. and got all their services for free. There were a few restrictions, I believe, but nothing major.

I would look into this as a first possibility.

Cheapest? ~ When does he want to use the connection and how much in the average month?

Virgin Net is reasonable for 'anytime' at £13.49/month and I always found it reliable. Freeserve is slightly more expensive at £13.99 but you get the first 3 months for £6.99 and there is no tie in contract.

Most of the pay as you go deals appear the same and the internet connection number can be designated 'best friend' if you have a BT line which make it very cost effective for off peak use.

click here and use the ISP Wizard (assuming you want an un-metered dialup account) - make sure to take note of the 'customer satisfaction' ratings.
