hi ive got BT 2mb at the same price as you're paying, i thought it was dear, but thinking about it i have never been unable to connect and have had no problems at all. So if a reliable connection is what you are after then it may be ideal, just be aware when they offer a free speed upgrade check the terms & conditions, ive now got a 15gb monthly usage allowance (it was unlimited before) & im tied into another 12 month contract with em. hope this helps.

The Tiscali service mentioned by Jackoms is difficult to beat - £17.99 for unlimited 2MB or £15.99 with a 2GB cap. You can even take out special BB + phone packages for very little more.

Despite some criticism of Tiscali in these columns, I've been with it since the WorldOnline days and have had few complaints.

It also upgrades services quite regularly for no extra charge. For instance I started on a 1MB service with 2GB cap in April and within six weeks this was upgraded to 2MB; the upgrade was in place the following day.

In turn, the capped £14.99 1MB service (I missed out on this as a customer because I had already taken out a contract) is now unlimited.

ou can compare all the broadband ISP's here click here. I chose Freedom 2 Surf and have never regretted it.

Freedom 2 Surf here too.

Been with NDO previously (before they were bought by Namesco), and they were great. Zen prior to that, great also. I just swap when I can get a better deal :)

F2S here too. Not the absolute cheapest, but excellent service. The comprehensive hosting is good value and helps because I can keep my domains in the same place as my ADSL.

Also; I would consider three features in particular to be paramount - free webspace, your own domain name and no contract period.

Tiscali proves to be a winner in my case. But you can obtain further ISP information from click here
