    Anyway to get a broadband set up without fee?

    Banned
    Is there anyway to get broadband connection set up for free considering I don't have active phoneline so might would want set up to that free as well?


    I just want it for playing 360 and PS3 online so mobile bradband isn't an option.

    is there no one close to hook onto theirs via wireless

    BT free line connection, quote that free free line connection if you havent got a line in the house.

    Phone and check first though, there might be one witch just needs to be activated free.

    BT broadband does charge a set up fee

    Don't know neighbours and none of the networks are unsecured

    BT charge £122 for connecting phone line alone, the 'save on connection' deal for free is not available anymore

    O2 have no connection charge but only worth getting if your exchange has been unbundled (LLU) - check the ]SamKnows site by entering your postcode if you're not sure.

    If you take out a triple provide then connection is free. phone,broadband,tv

    Have you phoned BT and asked them for a tech check to see if there is a line there or not?

    if you look online you can get a program that allows you on secured networks but its wrong to do apparently

    just make friends with neighbours and just offer them £10 a month to hook up to them id do it in these hard times it doesnt really affect them if your on it either

    Things to look out for...

    Downloading ilegal files
    If ISP's think you are doing so they can throttle your spead at peak times.
    Everything that the 2nd user would be using is counted as the person on the bill, untold problems could rise ahead.

    Even if you have great internet speed say 6MBPS. what would happen if 2nd user whanted to stream HD content?

    User 1 would have no bandwith at all.

    It does make a difference i personally wouldnt do it :thumbsup:

    As long as you trust the people 100%, at the end of the day its all about the bandwith, 50 people can be online if all you are doing is viewing a webpage but if you are doing more bandwith hungry things like xbox live streaming videos it really isnt gonn a be the best user experience.

    You can use mobile broadband with a ps3 and a 360 can't you:?

    im not disagreeing it could end in big problems, my mate has 3 comps downloading all the time and still internet works fine must be luck

    You need to know that using someone elses broadband is a criminal offence ,Not just a civil offence where you can be sued like downloading music or films,
