Fed Up with BT - suggestions for new dialup

  Haylyn 15:16 28 Jul 2005

Downloaded new payasyougo dialer from yahoo; real pain, computer froze then cost approx £12.00 for them to say must be incompatable with my computer- packardbell with pentium 4 running windows xp home. Next day BT had problems all morning with lines. I am just using their telephone number and have to manually switch on ie and mail.

Any suggestions for new dialup: just want payasyougo for low volume home use.

trouble is, BT own the lines, so whoever you go with,it might be the same...

OneTel could be worth a look, especially for the low volume user. 1.5p/min day or night. Various packages available; have a look:

No matter which provider you eventually opt to follow,BT owns the lines and can continue to give you the runaround.I changed to OneTel(BT had messed us around for over two years previously)within a week of switching over,BT disconnected the phone,this was a nightmare to remedy as BT wouldn't allow anyone but themselves to test/repair any faults,OneTel were as surprised as we were at BT's disconnecting the line and were unable to offer a solution other than contacting BT.After months of wrangling we were eventually offered compensation(£30) but BT's attitude sucks!

I use NTL dial up for £13.49/month for 24/7 access via an 0800 number.
