>>I'd rather give my money to the small business industry which has struggled over the past few years rather than the big multi-national company such as BT.
I have seen 'providers' marketing on Thinkbroadband over the years that are undischarged bankrupts. Providers that claim to be giving profits to 'worthy causes' yet are not giving money to worthy causes and providers that offer overpriced offerings for under allowance services.
In a free market, punters are free to choose poor value and barrow boy providers to serve their needs.
Indeed, some people may post in search of reassurance for their choices. Some maybe tiny provider sock puppets, some may make their living marketing on forums for free such as ThinkBroadband.
The fact is that by far and large, most people choose BT, Talk Talk and Sky for adsl services.
The recent results show BT are the winner of market share, Sky is second and Talk Talk are a lacklustre third.
The people have shown what they want and the serious players give people what they want.
In my view, the rest are simply also rans fighting for tiny market share relying on mugs, sock puppets and overpriced services marketed by fans on forums.
