    Best Broadband for my exchange?

    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

    1. EasyNet
    2. Sky

    talk talk network is way over subscribed so thats a no go

    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 )

    I say again all depends on location....OP states 02 not an option:whistling:

    ionly hav exp with aol and o2. o2 definately has the fastest speed with top isps 20Mb - unlimited + free24hr customer service. cheap deals only avaiilable to o2 sim card owners monthly or pay as you go
    im very close to my exchange get like 15mbps - 21mbps don't know how i am i getting the extra 1Mb lol
