The companies that get consistently very positive customer feedback include Zen Internet, Freedom2Surf, Plusnet and Nildram. In that order.

Take your pick.

If your not going to be downloading a lot of software, I would recommend Tiscali Broadband. I only left them because I started downloading more than 3GB per month, but for just normal use it is excellent value.

i'm with plusnet and think they are excellent 14.99 for uncapped 2mb connection

I'm not sure that I would call less than 3GB per month "normal use". That would be light use. I consider my usage to be only average, at 4 to 7GB per month.

It's bad idea to choose any 12-month contract, partly for this reason. The best providers tend to offer contract-free services, such as F2S.

I have checked Plusnet and although it sounds good value it is not totally uncapped.

Tiscali is aimed at the light user same as MSN Messenger users my grandchildren find it more than adequate at £14.99 per month.

Look at Eclipse, they offer monthly contracts as do Zen, I am looking forward to closing my 12 month contract with talktalk because of throttling I can't download the P2P version of OpenOffice
