I currently use AOL & pay £25 for the broadband service. I have never had any problems with them & like the free helpline. However I would prefer to use Outlook as an email program but can't with AOL. I don't like Freeserve or Wanado (whatever)as they charge an extortionate rate for help. What do the forum recommend to give good broadband service, free help, use Outlook & charge around £25 a month?
Try looking at this site click here as it has tons of info on isps and has a compare tool to help you choose an isp. The best ones seem to be freedom2surf, plusnet, pipex and metronet(if you are a low user).
I'm with Metronet. If you use up to 5 Gig a month, their PayAsYouGo deal is definitely your best choice. You can use Outlook but you don't get email addy's as part of the package. This wasn't a problem for me though as I just reconfigured my existing Tiscali, ic24 addy's to be used with Metronet.
AS the quality of ISP's varies around the country I would ask any of your neighbours what they are using and if they get good speeds rather than asking here. Once set up you should never need a help line.
