Hi
Anyone changed provider from BTbroadband ?
The reason I am asking is, has anyone got a phone number to cancel or a url where I can get some definite info on dumping them.

I had same problem canceling my account with bt, in the end I opened Contact us (top right of bt.com) and sent them a message wanting to cancel my account and payments would be stopped imediately.

That got their attention and instructed me how to cancel account.

BT are pig-ignorrent.

Thanks mate much appreciated.
I found it straight away will ring them tomorrow.
I am wanting to change as they have now decided to put a cut off limit onto the account.

Awright mate! How's the retirement going?

Who have you got your eye on as your new provider, or haven't you decided yet?

Hi D...
Was bored out of my head for the first 4 weeks so I joined an agency & got another job!
Was there for 2 days & walked the walk, sod work there are fish 2 catch!

Haven't made my mind up yet on who to use as my new provider.
Was thinking about AOL. As when I was with them on dialup, I used to enjoy the live quizess (is that how you spell quiz pluralised ? )
Anyway I am open to any suggestions from anyone on that subject.

I've been investigating broadband as cruella was thinking about getting it in. For her, I recommended MetroNet  as they do a 'pay as you go' broadband service. They get good reviews too. Take a look.

I don't like AOL. Never have, never will. Non-standard browsers and software that is almost impossible to get rid of without an IT degree can't really be recommended.

The terms and conditions state that your Tiscali service may be cut every 2 hours. If you need to be continuously connected, this could cause problems. They call this 'fair use'.  :shock:

Hi

New to the ne forum - great idea!

I'm looking for recommendations for broadband - must be monthly flat-fee scheme, not AOL, not Tiscali (they attract too much spam), no cut-off after a set number of hours, reliable ... does such a thing exist????  Thanks.

As a rule, broadband doesn't ever cut off - the 2-hour cut-off is a dialup thing. I agree I wouldn't touch AOL, not had any experience of tiscali though.

Tesco are offering a ?20/month package for unlimited 512Kb/sec usage, that's the best around at the moment if you don't want a monthly usage limit (for broadband these are mostly measured on data transfer rather than time).

Wanadoo is fairly cheap (?17.99 i think) if you only want 2Gb of transfers per month (enough for home users only checking emails and surfing net), plus their Broadband is 1Mb/sec. I'm with wanadoo and never had a problem.

Here's the addresses:

Thanks for this, will check them out.  Data transfer might be a prob but I'd never thought about these.

All the servers etc for the Tesco service are actually run by NTL, so it should be a reliable service - I had Tesco dial-up for a long time and they were fine, only changed over to Wanadoo because of the faster broadband connection.
