That would be an even more costly product I suspect, the ISP's have to recoup their costs, so the margin would be slimmer on a 'naked' service, therefore they would be obliged to charge more.
You doubtless pay more for your bread, milk, and meat, because you choose to buy them from smaller outlets, are you raising similar questions on Thinkcheese.com, I wonder ?
I pay more for my bread, meat and milk because I get a better product but the cost difference is not huge, in fact the bread I buy is only 10p more the stuff that comes out of supermarkets ovens.
Granted Milk is a fair few pence more, but then it is delivered as well.
Meat much better quality from butchers than what supermarkets push out.
But with broadband it still comes down the same wires, the main difference is how the provider mucks about with it and also customer service.
i have said before, I don't mind paying a bit extra for a decent service other wise I would not be with the provider I am with, there are plenty around that is cheaper than the just under £20 a month i pay at the moment.
Would not a mobile service better meet your needs, no line rental to pay ?
No, how do you make that out? Using a mobile service with the Wii and Ps3 would be expensive if not difficult.
