Yet another Which ISP?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,
I currently have 8GB Zen Office Max (£79+VAT p/m). I know this is expensive but I get pretty much no throttling and unlimited downlolads. These factors are particularly important as I use my connection for work from home and for pleasure.
I am a heavy user so this service suits me. I was wondering if I could get comparitive broadband for a cheaper price (faster would obviously be good!).
My priories are (in this order):

1) Unlimited
2) No throttliong
3) Cheaper price
4) Faster broadband

Any suggestions would be very welcome.
Thanks,
iq

If you moved to Be*, Sky broadband, or one of the Cable&Wireless resellers such as Vivaciti or Xilo, then you'll enjoy all of the four things you ask smile

Cheers,

Looks like you have a great deal of choice.

Is FTTC available to you?

If not, I recommend BE.

How do I tell if I can have FTTC? The exchange stats say that FTTC is available in some areas.

BTW I looked earlier on the BT broadband checker and it came up with
BT Infinity 36.1Mb download 7.8Mb upload
BT Total Broadband Between 10.0Mb and 19.5Mb (Estimated speed: 17.0Mb)

Looks like you can get FTTC then, if that was the phone number checker.
