    Be Broadband Experiences

    Hi

    I am looking to using Be Broadband and using the Be Value package and was wondering if anyone has any experiences with them good or bad. I would be grateful if anyone could tell me whether they think the service is good etc.....

    Thanks!

    There are numerous members on this forum that use Be and I cant say Ive ever seen anything negative written form those users.

    I've use Be for just over a year now. I do have a few niggles, but they really are insignificant in the bigger picture of things and I doubt any ISP would be better. Most would be massively inferior.

    Connection speed for me is 16.5Mb and download speed of just over 1.2MBps. Im not going to complain about that.

    I have been on Be for a few years and have found them to be very reliable. If you are a distance from the exchange dont go for the 24 meg package as you will never achieve it. I am on the £14 per month package and its great value for money, generally get 6meg+ speeds, there is also no port blocking, capping or throttling and the downloads are unlimited as advertised.

    Any probs I have had have been sorted in hours rather than days like some other ISP's.

    The Member forums on their website are full of helpful info if your ever stuck.

    I would recommend them.

    Very much recommend them, i've been with them for a couple of months or so, no problems at all, the guy help me set it all up, even rang me back so i didn't py for the phone call!! I pay for 8mb and get 7.4mb, all of the time, no throttling, and i use it A LOT!! Excellent, and only £8 a month until Jan! although not sure if that offer is still on.

    If you are thinking of joining i will be happy to refer you so you don't pay the connection fee, if i can work out how to

    thanks for the reply guys!! I think I might go with them and the free connection fee for the unlimited and pro package seems like a good deal especially if quidco tracks for £40 too!

    the £8 a month deal is still on which is very good!!!

    I was wondering whether the wireless modem they offer you are any good? and if I use my only would there be a problem?

    Thanks for the reply! Rep left to all!!! :thumbsup:

    Which modem do you have?

    at the moment I only have a D Link ADSL router would that be ok?

    Depends..If you look on the sticker it should have a model number

    I've come out of my self imposed exile to post here.
    Great service, really quick turn around, fast speeds, CS are good too.
    You get a modem, but it's worth £100 if you lose it, or fail to send back when you cancel.
    I joined in July and got the free connection, quidco has been paid too, due this month. It's been received, but not yet with me.
    Use the refer-a-friend option, you'll get a free month and the referrer will to.

    So, i got free connection (via a code), free month (for Guv and i) and quidco is due to paid this payment

    Worth the money for sure.

    the code you used is it the one Guv gave you? looking at quidco is it possible to use code and get quidco as well?

    thanks i think i may look into the refer a friend option, so we both will get a free month?

    cannot remember now, was a code on here for free connection, was a few months back
    Edit : i used ]this link here
    Code back then was LITE
    I'm on be unlimited
    I'll refer you :giggle:
    Yes, we'd both get a free month

    Ok I wasnt sure whether using code would mean that I won't get Quidco but if yours is fine then it should be ok!

    I am looking to join the Value package.

    I think Sancho1983 offered to refer me first, would he have a problem if I went with boydent999 as I want to get it sorted asap. I don't mind who refers me but dont want it to seem unfair?

    brillangel;3047381

    the model number is DSL-924thanks!!



    It should work, although it wont be supported by Be if you have any problems.

    You'll have the bebox as a backup anyways

    No, not at all, if you wanna go with Sancho i don't mind, i'll be your reserve

    Don't bother looking for another ISP. I've been using it for over 2 years and I'm totally satisfied. Great service and actual unlimited download. Speed depends on exchange distance like always. I'm using Be unlimited. Go for it!

    really? not sure can be worth a try though i guess because with or without the free connection it is still worthwhile to go with be, lets hope we can do it!! :-D

    Someone refered me to the value package

    Did you both get a free month?

    Not interfering BTW. I had referrals and they didnt give the free month because they choice the value package. Maybe they've changed the rules?
