THANKS, I KNOW THAT PHONE PRICE WILL NOT INCLUDE PHONE AS ITS SEPERATE BUT WOULD THE PRICE STILL INCLUDE LINE RENTAL FOR ALL THINGS TO DO WITH INTERNET EVEN THOUGH IT'S 3X FASTER AND WOULD FREE UP THE PHONE LINE, (SO I CAN BE ON PHONE AND ONLINEI NO CALL CHARGES ETC. ARE STLL APPARENT). ALSO WHY DOESNT THIS AND SOME OTHER BBAND SERVICES NOT WORK ON MACS? THANKS AGAIN

thanks i guess that the phoneline would not be busy when your online then and also why does this and some other broadband services not work on macs?

why not just get broadband?

click here for prices.

Why bother with snail speeds when proper broadband is just a few quid more.

Also you could try pressing your capslock BEFORE TYPING!

SORRY about that i payed no attention. Thanx for the link very useful-norm.broadband does look the better option!!!

Decide how much you are prepared to pay a month. 512kb is a lot better than dialup you will notice the difference immediately. 1mb is a lot faster than 512kb, downloads complete quickly! 2mb you just don't have to wait.

You should be able to get 512kb for £22.50, 1mb £27.50, 2mb £37.50. With no download limits. Other forum members will be able to tell you about pay as you go broadband. (Metronet I think)

You could do far worse than check click here The 1mb and 2mb service is superb! Failing that Pipex or Bulldog are pretty good.

Had tiscali 150 for about a month now, speedtouch modem does not like via chipset, so could not connect to wifes computer,connected to mine and shared internet explorer and connected to hers via network I set up, no problems thus far, however their forum shows they have a few disgruntled customers, they dont tell you about the millions of satisfied ones tho' Hope that helps

I've been using Tiscali 150 for over a week now and find it well worth the extra £1 a month over my old Freeserve Anytime. Another option that is worth looking at is Metronet. Their 512k service costs between £10 and £23.99 a month depending on how much you download. click here
