Thread: Uk based isp 8mb MAX?

  1. #1
    Since i mainly use newsgroups i thought i would ask here. Im really getting sick of freedom2surf as they keep throttling my connection to 600kbs. Can anyone make a reccomendation for a uk isp which has 8mb+, low ping, uncapped, and has NO traffic shaping? Or could you guys just tell me what you use and your experience

    both give 10mb i think and priced around 35.

    or if u got sky tv then u could get sky broadband for cheap (16mb 10 month)

    I think they'd still charge the cancellation fee though.

    I'm on Tesco's cheapest unimited plan and their news service is supplied by NTL.
    Completion is very good and retention is about 4 or 5 days which is often long enough to get what you want if you keep an eye out.
    They carry about 50,000 groups which includes a lot of (but obviously not all) binary groups.
    There isn't a bargepole long enough for me to work on [a Sony Viao] - clocker 2008

    im currently with demon, its unlimited and unshaped atm, but not for long.
    with their free upgrade to maxdsl (8mb) they are introducing a fair usage policy with a peak time cap. it will remain unthrottled/unshaped though.

    their free usenet news service is rubbish. it lists the binaries, but wont actually let me download. constantly gives me the error "article not found" when trying to download.

    if its adsl u want, go for this: http://broadband.nildram.net/products/broadband2/

    if its cable, go with blueyonder, or be.
