virgin - 2mb for £5.50

Yeah i got pi$$ed of with tiscali, and went with o2, got to say they are superb....

Be there are very good, i highly recommend them, if you want refering let me know, free month for both of us if you can get it

virgin is great

O2 or Be there are supposed to be the best, Their the same company as well so doesn't matter which.

Vote for BE/O2! We have had it for 1 year, great costumer service, fast broadband, never let us down!

If you're an o2 customer, else £12.50 for an upto 8Mb link.
I am a Be'er, upto 24Mb download and 1.3Mb upload and it is working out at 17Mb down 1.1Mb up for £18/month
Not the cheapest but for me and other's it is worth it.
I have xbox live and have no issues, aside from times with Japanese/Chinese gamers and the occasional US one's, but you can see the ping on most games before you play them and decide if the lag is worth it

Edit: Check out Sam Knows to see what's available where you live.......

@Shaun, noticed you never replied about the fans of football in Manchester thread lol

Avoid Sky Broadband at all cost, You might as well not have broadband

As far as I know O2 are the only cheap ISP that doesn't enforce any limitations, if you can't get them then you're going to have to pay a lot more (£50+ a month) or compromise on the unlimited part or the speed.

I'm not sure what you mean, can you link to where it says that?

I'm with talktalk - It's free, I've had no issues and currently running at 8m/b.

Sky, then O2/BeThere.

Depends what you are looking for and whats available.

However you should always do a comparison over at [url]www.thinkbroadband.com[/url]

Here is a comparison of Be Unlimited, O2, Freedom2Surf and Tiscali

thinkbroadband.com/isp…3=1

tiscali being the worst.

The results of thinkbroandband.com are by their users, so are not just industry stats.

Personally I use Freedom2Surf, they are not the cheapest but their support desk is 2nd to none.

O2 seems the best

O2 seems the best



I use Be (owned by o2) and I agree.

Thanks for asking this question OP as I was about to do the same

Does anyone know how long after you sign up for broadband do they connect you?

If LLU isn't available in your area then you can pretty much kiss goodbye to any notion of unlimited downloading at a reasonable price.

Another vote for Be / O2
