IDNet are the UK's top ISP

Scroll down this page:

They're rated top for Broadband Quality in the UK. About time too! smile

I wouldn't trust this netindex study. It puts BT on one of the top rankings, too, at 4th place, which can't be right.

Personally I found IDNet's services to be quite unreliable, so we finally left them a few weeks ago and switched our line over to a LLU provider. Much better now.

That's what everyone has been suggesting you do for a year or more, to get away from the BT side of IPStream providers!

Glad you're happier now.

It does make you wonder considering the recent mass outage Idnet suffered. How can we be top of the "quality index"?

"We" ?

Maybe IDNet customers can discern which problems are the fault of the ISP and which of BT.

It's a pity that ISP customers can't comment separately on the performance of the wholesale supplier used by their ISP.

Hmmm... to be more accurate, they are listed as the top rated of the 15 ISPs listed on that page.

I have a little bird that tells me that there are over 80 retail ISPs in the UK...

List is pointless. Only people with fast connections end up going through with doing the tests, and as Idnet customers are roundly more technically minded they'd look after their wiring better and do more, faster tests.

Actually, the list that is referred to in this post is not populated from speedtest.net results.

It uses pingtest.net data which does not run any sort of speedtest.
