My parents are about to join the broadband revolution. Their local exchange is wired for sound and they’ve just got to decide who to have as a provider. BT would be the obvious choice, but I’d like to hear from you if you can think of a better ISP.

Maximum speeds and download limits are unlikely to be an issue. Price and overall reliability and service are the most important factors.

(You’ll notice that the comments have changed. Backblog has been experiencing problems that have resukted in the page taking far too long to download. So I turned it off and have gone over to Blogger comments instead.)

    I just switched to BT from Zen(who are the best around) for price reasons. However I used 316% of the 1Gb download limit in 3 days by installing Gentoo.

    Maybe its worth checking out Wanadoo which is the same price as BT but with higher download limits.

    My Dad is about to join the broadband revolution too. He has just signed up to NTL. I think they are doing a special deal at the moment, something in the region of ten pound a month for 1MB. NTL don’t have a download limit.

    I’m using Bulldog Broadband. Down here in Staines I can get 8MB for about 30 quid. Up north I think you are limited to about 2MB.

    From what I remember, BT are expensive for what you get. Demon even more so. NTL had a nice balance of price over speed.
