Anyone here use them? Wanted to know what there service is like. Thanks
A friend of mine's getting it installed next week, I'll get back to you In the meantime, have a look around http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ (formerly adslguide.org)
I've had it for a few months or whenever it was announced and it has been pretty awesome.
it was a bit on and off for the first week or 2 but these days it's constant at around 6.5gbps.
the max my line can do is 7.5 so i'm not complaining.
Cool, I decided i might aswell give thier upto 16meg service a go, for £10 a month it beats 8meg on AoHell who decide to cap my speeds every night down to 0.5meg.
thinkbroadband.co.uk is a goldmine for broadband info, I've been reading thier boards for a while whenever i need techincal help.
package good deals..
£15 for sky + £10 for 16mb Broadband = £25pm
sky are pretty Slow in some area, the more sky customer in your area the slower ratio connection.
service mostly busy - if you compare with Aol (uk) they are suck (they only have 4 tech support out of XX,XXX,XXX user)
£25pm for 24mb Broadband ADSL 2 = excellent
however their contract are crap! after a year contract you need to send them a "letter" within 3 months they ask you to send your router back to them.
*No Static IP address.. (I think)
service mostly busy.....
I guess i'll see how it goes, If i dont get 1mb/s then i'll leave in the cooling off period and just settle for cable internet. I've heard mixed responses from sources so i guess i cant really judge.
well my line should be activated friday and i should be able to achieve 16 meg. hopefully all will go well
For the first month you will get the advertised connection, but after that your speed will go down (if mine and a couple of my friends' experiences are anything to go by). I got the 8Mb/s package and in the first month that was the speed I was consistently getting, but since then it seems to go no higher than 4Mb/s. It's still fast enough for me, but I just thought I should let you know.
I got the package and the internet is great. But it does have 40gb limit per month
I've currently got it and its a pile of shit. People on the helpline dont know what the're talking about and every now and again they mess up my bill and charge me double.
Best service I've ever had was Telewest, never had a problem with them when I had them for a year and looking forward to get them back next month.
im planning on switching too lol any advice? I was looking at the sky option that was unlimited (since we already have sky boxes).
No, you have no minimum contract with be, but you need to give 3 months notice. You can do an 'express' one-month cancellation for £50 too.
Check Virgin media. they are doing some good deals, although u wont get sky channels
I wouldn't get sky broadband. You seen the adverts, you get up to 8 megabits download speed. Which is about 1mb. Every other provider its up to 1mb What makes me laugh the most is they still show the same advert.
8Mb/s is the £5 per month package, for £10 you get 16Mb/s.
Well tomorrows the day and hopefully it'll all be good. I should be able to support 16meg as i have a good line. I'll let you know how it goes
Im with sky and when i try speedtests i get 5-6mb and download speeds of around 600-800 kbs. its not bad but there are better ones out there
like... and pricing?
Im still waiting, Should be activated between now and monday. Im on the £10 max service and i should easily get between 14-16meg.
