Largely as BatBoy says. I recommend two resellers of C & W as you can't get that direct, and a couple of further options as well, but rather not list them just yet as I would just confuse you with too much information.

What sort of thing do you want the connection for? For example gaming, or huge downloading? Lots of social networking? Or just simple browsing, internet shopping, banking, email and so on?

The best for one of those may not be the best for the others.

Have you got email that doesn't depend on your ISP? If not, we need to think about that as well.

How long do you expect to stay there? That makes a huge difference to the landline costs/recommendation, as you have to have one, and then also to the broadband.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk
My domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost. Internet connection - IDNet Home Starter Fibre. Live BQM.

50-60gb per month mostly programmes about an hour long each .No gaming some facebook
browsing clothes websites ebay shopping . Hotmail email and messenger no banking.
Well about 12 months or more depends on neighbours etc.


Helo Batboy and RobertoS thankyou.

Make it simple like a b or c options. Didnt know it was so complicated !

While you're waiting, why don't you sign up here for a username. That will prevent you getting lost in a sea of Anonymices.

You'll need a phone line.

C&W is Cable and Wireless.

Any of those I recommended is suitable for you. You probably want to check out the prices.

The virgin media without phone line XL (30Mbps) is £28.50 a month (first three months £23.50.
Not mega cheap, but faster that the ADSL options, as distance to exchange does not matter.

If money is a big factor, then Be Value at £14.08 a month, but need to add the cost of the phone line at £9.70 a month. Speed you get dependant on distance from the phone exchange.

pointing her at an actual retail offering might help rather than "C&W"
