unexpired, they have extended the offer.
I have been using simply usenet for the last 2-3 weeks, and the speeds are the same, it could be a good deal for some people. They have accounts from £2.99 for people on slower connection speeds, added the rest to the bottom this time.
I am using the £6.99 account for my BE 24 meg connection and i get full download speeds. This is what it says on their website:
24 Mb Download Speed
520+ Days Retention
24 High Speed Connections
UK Based Support
Free SSL Encryption!
Was £10.99, Now only £6.99 per month
Lifetime Offer, we will not raise the price as long as your subscription remains active.
2 Mb Download Speed: Was £4.99, Now only £2.99 per month
8 Mb Download Speed: Was £6.99, Now only £4.99 per month
16 Mb Download Speed: Was £8.99, Now only £5.99 per month
24 Mb Download Speed: Was £10.99, Now only £6.99 per month
50 Mb Download Speed: Was £12.99, Now only £10.99 per month
Their 50 meg is more expensive than astraweb offer though, so it is cheaper staying with astraweb or going to them instead.
I hope this is useful for some people, if it is helpful please leave feedback and reputation. thanks
