    I'm looking for a new ISP and was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations? I'm looking for a good speed and unlimited usage and obviously one who's not going to have big issues with me using bittorrent.

    At the moment I'm leaning towards Be Pro:

    https://www.bethere.co.uk/broadbandoffice.do

    Can someone who knows more about this stuff than me check it over and see if it looks like a good deal or not?

    Cheers

    i have been looking to change isp recently, having spent a few long years with bulldog - a good isp for sure, great speeds at a fair price.

    be pro was the best thing i could find and i have two friends already using them that report good things back to me. for value and speed, i think they offer the best deal.

    I fully recommend them, especially the Pro package, you get a decent upstream and I never have any problems about how much am using it or what I am using it for, and I use it 24/7
    Yes Sir, I'm Right On It!!

    Definitely Be. https://www.bethere.co.uk/

    I got my Be Pro connection a few weeks ago.

    It........ is............................awesome. However, use OpenDNS (Be's DNS has a bad rep) and specify Google's IPs in your hosts file (OpenDNS redirects Google traffic), and make sure you use a static IP to avoid having to wait 40 minutes for your DHCP lease to timeout. And make sure you keep your BeBox vertical or maybe upsidedown to aid heat dissipation.

    Going by how much I transferred last month, I'll probably do a good 200 gigs of traffic this month. And Be just doesn't care.

    Go with Be*.

    I'm on Be and can vouch for it's reliability and speed. No throttling, just a decent service as expected. And it has a short minimum contract too if you don't like it. I don't get commission by the way!

    DONT GET VIRGIN CABLE!!!!!!!

    they have speedcaps, if you download a little they'll half your speed, plus the reliability is crap, you'll be on the phone to them like twice a week.

    btw, does bethere have any speedcaps?

    Don't go for Virgin media whatever you do. They half your speed between a certain time of the day.
