Hi Indigo 1. Freeuk is a good ISP if you just want to pay as you go. No fees at all, just the cost of local phone call depending on time of day/night or weekend. Also you can have the ISP number down as "Your best friend" even cheaper rate from BT.
Sign up on-line or give them a phone call. You could even download the small setup file on your PC direct to floppy, insert in Friends PC and click on the setup icon, on-line in a minute. j.
I've been with BT now for about three and a half years and can't fault the service. £7.99 per month added to your phone bill for Surftime. No line charges between 1800 and 0800 hrs Monday to Thursday, and 1800 Friday to 0800 hrs Monday.
VIRGIN i have been with virgin since they started they do pay as you go or unlimted for £13.49 a month easy to set up and i have not had any probs with the service and you dont have any 12 month contract for 24/7 or broadband.
