do not go with bt, whatever you do the homehub is like a brick and if you unplug it at night it will not work in the morning, customer service is useless you phone up india and the person on the other end of the phone knows nothing about vista and cannot understand what you are saying and you cannot understand them. it takes about an hour a time to get it sorted and when you do you then realise it costs about £10.00 each time to phone customer service and that will be on your next bill...oh yes. stay away from bt i switched to virgin broadband and i get tv phone and broadband for £30 a month and have not had a single issue with the broadband....tv is not as good as sky though.

been using Tiscali for 18 months, were terrible for first 10 months (on/off, billing problems) but have been fine since,

they are now offering cheap line rental, but i am reluctant to switch my line from BT as I expect there to be a mess up and i will loose broadband for days, as well as a sign up fee for switching

previously i used BT Business in several locations for 4 years, never a problem, but expensive,

apparently www.fast.co.uk are good
