I am using a dial-up modem which is very slow now because of all the broadband connections out there. I might be thinking of switching to broadband soon. But which ISP offers the best, reliable but is also quite cheap broadband connection. THX

I use Blueyonder from Telewest, and it starts from ?25 a month if you have another service from them if nor it is ?29.99 for their 512Kb service.

Cant fault their relibility 99% of the time.
Only thing you have to be in their franchise area.

You can't get much cheaper than than my provider, Metronet. click here
The service is on a Pay As You Go basis and starts from ?11.75 a month inc VAT which is cheaper than many unmetered dial up packages. I've been with them since July and the service has been faultless. Check out the forum click here
