    Which ISP?

    I'm currently with Virgin Media for my phone & broadband, but have cancelled my phone and am going with BT - reason was because I'[m trying to cut my monthly outgoings. Now I have the dilema of who to get my broadband from. I have an Orange Mobile so I thought maybe Orange but that would mean renewing with an 18 month contract and i'm 8 months into my current one so i'm not that keen. I have Sky so I thought Sky could be a good option with Talk See & Surf.

    What does everyone else use? I've heard Sky had some initial problems but most of them are now sorted.

    Anything/one else i should consider?

    We're with Zen - a bit more expensive than many, but 100% completely reliable and customer service is second to none. They are a very professional outfit, and you should find a package to suit:

    This site also gives pretty honest ratings, which you might find useful:

    im with ukonline so far cheap reasonable costs me a tenner a month. thought of changing to sky but during the change process i will be without broadband for up to 4 months.

    shy wont connect if an existing broadband connection is there you have to cancel down and clear the line before they will start the connection process. recently a friend of mine went onto sky it took them 12 weeks to connect.

    Carphone warehouse have just taken 5 months to connect another friend who was originally on dial up.

    Hope this helps you choose

    I would choose an LLU service if you have one available at your exchange.

    I moved from Zen to BE, and am very happy with the speed/service.

    Sky's unlimited 16mb offering doesnt seem to get the bad reviews that its other services do either.

    I'm with Be

    I connect at around 17-19mb, hardly enough time to make a cuppa before Lost is 'found'...
