One of the best ISPs around I think, and they just lowered their prices. You get adsl2+ up to 24mbit (10-16mbit are more typical),
with essentially no usage restrictions (30GB/day), and 1.3mbit upload. They also loan you a rather nice wireless/voip router, a Speedtouch 780.

Alternatively, if you want upload they do "Be Pro" annex M adsl2+ with up to 2.5mbit upload, for £22/month - the fastest upload you can get with a domestic ISP. At the cheaper end you get 8mbit for £14/month.

Remember quidco, at £55 it's a nice bonus.

For comparison, the only other genuine unlimited adsl2+ provider out there is Bulldog, and they're 25/month, as well as being extremely incompetent. UKO have moderate limits, but are 25/month also. Sky are cheaper at 10/month if you have satellite TV, but enforce limits and don't offer anywhere near as good a service as the others. Don't even mention Orange, AOL, CPW and co....

ENSURE YOU ARE NOT STILL INSIDE A CONTRACTUAL PERIOD WITH YOUR CURRENT PROVIDER, MOST WILL WANT AT LEAST 1MONTH'S NOTICE TO LEAVE

IF MIGRATING FROM ANOTHER PROVIDER YOU WILL REQUIRE A MAC CODE FROM YOUR CURRENT PROVIDER IF YOU ASK FOR IT AND YOU USE IT STRAIGHT AWAY YOU WILL LIKELY OWE YOUR CURRENT PROVIDER 3WEEKS USAGE FOR A SERVICE YOU CANNOT USE AS BETHERE WILL HAVE TAKEN OVER YOUR SERVICE, I RECOMMEND GETTING A MAC CODE AND USING IT 14-20DAYS AFTER GETTING THE CODE TO AVOID THIS.

THERE IS A 7DAY NOTICE PERIOD TO CANCEL IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL 7DAYS AFTER ORDERING YOU ARE SUBJECT TO THE BE CONTRACT/NOTICE PERIODS ETC.

Edit: seems they have "fair use" limits, but like all ISPs it's kept deliberately vague. Posts on adslguide suggest lots of people have downloaded several 100GB/mth without problems, and I've never heaard of anyone being kicked off or throttled.

Quidco = £55

Recommend a friend:
Those getting Be Unlimited and Pro (does not apply to Value) = one month free service for new customer and the person who registeres the referral also gets 1month free service (you tell Be There the new customers customer id), I believe someone recommended 24 friends to Be There once and got free service for life...

I believe the 3months notice to leave BeThere still exists on Unlimited and Pro... (1year contract on Be Value)

The website in the OP seems to say the unlimited (1.3Mbit upload) and pro (2.5Mbit upload) are £24/mo and £40/mo respectively? This doesn't seem to agree with the prices quoted above?

Hmmm, I'm with Bulldog and never had a prob with them but don't really get more than 5mb where I am. Thinking that these guys might be able to get more out of it.

What are the cancellation conditions? I might only be on my place for 6 months and have to move afterwards. Can you move home with them? do u have to pay loads to cancel/move ? Also, you need a BT line with these guys, don't u ? how much is it nowadays?

Perfect timing for me - have just dumped Virgin Cable and was going to get Bethere next week after BT came to install the line. Was going to go for the 8 meg service, but will now get the 24 meg - am only 870 m straight line from exchange so this is a great deal for me v. hot

If you are with bulldog you are still paying line rental, just to Bulldog instead of BT directly.

BT Line is £11/month or so.

I suggest you do quite a bit of research, ]adslguide.org.uk forums before leaving bulldog as they have your pstn phoneline and LLU service, and chances are moving away from them will equal at least a 1-2days if not more downtime of loss of phone line and service.

Hopefully I'm wrong, but being sceptical in life avoids disappointment

Also, are you still inside a contractual period with bulldog?

So long as you are outside your cable contract period (which will want 30days notice if outside it) and have an active bt line you can get this without hassle

Don't forget quidco.

I hate where I live.....

Your line should be capable of supporting download speeds up to 1Mb (around 20 times faster than dial-up)

No Cable ChrisUK?
Albeit 4mb (slowly becoming 10mb) for£27, 20mb for £37 is a rip off compared to be, even with phoneline costs.

Nope - that stops about 5 doors down from me

And there ends the example of cable being excempt from the strict regulations which BT comes under and noone else does beause cable moans like hell to Ofcom, shame they can't moan to BT about these LLU prices :-D because BT wouldn't be allowed to for sure.

Doh, I just switched to ADSL24. They are good, but this deal would have been better.

Virgin broadband (non-cable at least) is horrible, stay away.

All in hand - Virgin contract notice period expires on 29th, BT coming on 15th, will run both in parallel until VM come to pick up all their equipment on 29th. Should be able to get Be installed before the VM contract expires so no loss in downtime etc.
Was going to go Bethere anyway so this is cracking for me - and yes, I had forgotten quidco, so thanks for the reminder.
VM are now simply hopeless and after 10 years of being a customer of theirs have decided enough is enough.
This is great news for me.

Nope. I've called them and I've managed to get £10 off my bill from Bulldog. So the 20mb + Line Rental for £30 (not too bad). Prob is that I don't get the 20mb at all. I guess this has to do with the ****** line to my house (I'm about 1.8-2k from the exchange). Had a guy from bulldog looking at it and he didn't manage to improve it.

Check that you haven't started a new contractual period when you took that new lower price.

Nope. Told them about that and made sure I didn't :). It shows as a £10 discount on my bill (not as a new price/contract)

Pipex owning Bulldog, the fact that noone trumps BT in terms of CS for phonelines and Bulldogs horrible history with Cable and Wireless means I'd move back to BT & to Be if I were you

I'll be moving to the first company to unbundle my exchange regardless of who it is. In a village to the chances of my exchange ever getting up to 24Mbit is slim other than the BT 21N upgrade that's apparently scheduled for 2011

Feel free to complain to Ofcom asking them why VM isn't subject to the same forced rollout/coverage/regulations as BT are.

Im a veryveryvery happy BE member. And now they have lowered their prices and chucked in a free static IP (so i can host Battefield 2 ), rang on a monday was connected by that friday. I happily throw money at company's who are that together, which I don't actually need to. And they even game me few days money back last month due to it being their birthday.

This offer looks good. I am with bulldog at the moment and have been for 4 years. I just rang them and told them about the offer and they have offered me 20meg broadband(actually get 14meg down and 1 meg up) and line rental for £25 instead of £35 that I am paying now.

Never regretted switching ISP's from Nildram to Be. Great combination of speed/value/service. Can't recommend them highly enough.

I third that, moved from Plusnet to BE a few months ago, overly impressed at every stage with BE....ultimately professional to the core. No capping, and now my monthly sub reduced to £18 for a 24mb line? Amazing :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

ADSL24 contracts are only 1 month IIRC so switch after the month :thumbsup:

Bah, I hate the fact that BE is not available in my area!!! Wish they'd hurry up and roll out to my area!!!

[SIZE=2]@introlux, yep absolutely. From the email i got today about the price change, it says the following:-[/SIZE]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]All new members will be able to buy Be unlimited and Be pro for the new prices from today. [/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]All existing members will see the new pricing on their December invoice with a refund to cover the period from 10th October to 30th November.[/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][SIZE=2][/SIZE][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][SIZE=2]So if you sign up today it should be for the new price :thumbsup: [/SIZE][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][SIZE=3][/SIZE][/COLOR]

The price cut is on the Be Forum, the AG Forum, the AG Front page, it's official, not yet on the Be front page/listing which is a bit annoying I can imagine.

Ultimate confirmation if you like: call them

Orange

etc

All cherry pick, if your exchange doesn't meet the criteria to be profitable/worth the market risk thats their choice unfortunately.

Does [url]www.samknows.com[/url] throw up any other LLU choices?

Hi, new to the forums...
Just wanted to know, i've been with Sky for about 6months and am thinking about switching to Be - does anyone know if Sky incur charges for switching over?
Thanks

I managed to get the 'free for life' service over a year ago by recommending more than 24 friends. I can highly recommend (....here we go again!!!!!) the service - very limited downtime and I generally get about 1.3mb per second download speeds, so I get a song in just a couple of seconds, or an album in under a minute.

Only problem is I want to move house soon, and fear I may loose my broadband for life :-(

Ok i have A BT line and when i go to check online what i can handle it comes up with 5.5 mb, with the adsl2+ and be server will i get the maxinmum, i have currently aol 2mb unlimited on contract still but if i get a mac code does it mean i can still migrate? Thank you all

voted hot! I've just come to the end of my year contract with Tiscali and I can't wait to see the back of 'em!

I'm already with BE but just wanted to confirm to anyone out there that they are by far the best ISP I have dealt with - very fast and reliable service, no apparent bandwidth throttling, excellent service on the rare occasion you might need to contact them, and vibrant user community.

Unreserved recommendation

e7VEN HAD SOME GOOD DEALS AT THE TIME TOO.

Be warned!!

All the BT databases are still on ADSL1 8mb-max which is why you are getting that figure instead if nice ADSL2+ speeds

There are scripts online if you google them to give you a rough figure of your feasible ADSL2+ speed if you put in your snr/attenuation figures from your current router.

Comparing Be to (allegedly) corrupt criminals that are e7even is a major insult to Be tbh.
