    It's not much faster at all but the price is decent mate. If I was you, I'd check out ISP Review. They let you know what the best offers are and any complaints from customers

    if you change to a b/band connection you also have to bare in mind that your download speed can only be as fast as the person you are downloading from. i have a 600k connection but my downloads are still 0.10kb/s somtimes. on other occasions it can be 35.00 kb/s, of course i never had that high download speed when i was on a 150k connection, but you will notice a SMALL difference with 150k.

    Have a look on BT.com. If there is a high enough demand for broadband in your area they may enable your exchange.

    Local campaigning really gets results.
    Over 200 exchanges are now being enabled thanks to campaigns encouraging people to register their interest.
    Assuming you live within 5.5km of your local telephone exchange that is.

    What about cable companies such as NTL or Telewest? Their coverage is pretty extensive.

    15.99 for 150Kbps - that&#39;s daylight robbery&#33;

    I pay 18.95 (Inc. VAT) for 576/288Kbps&#33;
