Hi,

I currently have my broadband with AOL and through speed checks it looks like i am getting -
Speed Down 2253.03 Kbps ( 2.2 Mbps )
Speed Up 357.25 Kbps ( 0.3 Mbps )
My contract is up next month and im trying to decide who to go with to get the fastest speed. I have checked on samknows.com and got the below results -
AOL:
Enabled
O2 / Be:
Not available
C&W / Bulldog:
Enabled as of 20/05/2006
Edge Telecom:
Not available
Entanet:
Not available
Lumison:
Not available
NewNet:
Not available
Node4:
Not available
Orange:
Enabled
Pipex:
Not available
Sky / Easynet:
Enabled as of 09/06/2008
Smallworld:
Not available
TalkTalk (CPW):
Enabled as of 18/11/2006
Tiscali:
Enabled as of 25/07/2007
Tiscali TV:
Not available
WB Internet:
Not available
Zen Internet:
Not available

So i have a choice from staying with AOL or going to C&W / Bulldog,Orange,Sky / Easynet,TalkTalk (CPW),Tiscali or BT.

Does anyone have any advice or experience with any of these providers as they all claim to have fast speed etc
Thanks

i phoned aol to cancel my 2mb contract and was upgraded to 8mb for the same price
might be worth a try as you will need your mac code from them anyway

All depends on how far you are from the exchange....to what speed mb you will receive...BT are the Daddies IMHO...ask your neighbours who they are with..and what speed they receive....:thumbsup:

I was with BT and found there speed was rubbish at peak times, even on there top package. I moved to o2 and i get 15.5mb down and 1mb up. All for 10 pounds a month ( got an o2 mobile )
