i,ve got my MAC code and i'm off to.......??


[link to this post]
 
Hi all
I have been a long serving customer with (originally) nildram who i found fine, TALK TALK ate them up and now i'm off( due to many many issues mainly xbox live just not working properly!!) So i've finally got my MAC code and i'm looking elsewhere. I would like around 50gb allowance and I currently can only recieve 8meg speeds, The main 3 contenders so far are idnet home plus, BE unlimited and zen active, if Zen would supply me a free modem (I could do with a new one really) I would happily pay the extra for what looks like an excellent service but 50 quid for a modem on top makes it a bit costly.
Thats literally all i want 8meg broadband with around 50gb allowance that actually provides what it asays it will oh and a wireless modem/router!!! any thoughts guys??

Have you checked you can actually get Be? If so, then that is a no-brainer as the others are still on BT Wholesale DLM.

If you can, then order online (after clearing cookies) through TopCashBack or Quidco, to get £40/£35 cash back in a while.

I suggest Idnet, excellent company and care for their customers. Zen also have a godd reputation. I believe BE have some problems at times according to their forum on here.

try o2. I've just renewed for a further 12 months - I've already had two years. Clued up and helpful techie people, all UK based. Nothing too much trouble. But, they do have to have put their equipment in your exchange - it's no good having a re-labelled BT product. Hope this helps. John

A renewed legacy package is a totally different kettle of fish from one of the new packages! Recommending the new ones has to be done with great care.

What doesn't work?

Try this link.

You really ought to research a little more, you seem to want to jump without really inspecting where you will land smile.

Yes, but not real-time. Updates daily, overnight it seems.

Yes, there's a daily usage facility within your account area, and you can also set up an RSS feed to get the same information.

Updated at midnight.
