Anyone Use/Heard of Breathe Internet ?


[link to this post]
 
I'm thinking about joining them, swapping from a "up to 8 meg" connection to a "upto 24 meg" connection as my local exchange as been updated.
I've never heard of the company before and their prices seems low compared to others offering just broadband only (I don't want broadband and calls).

Supposedly it's Unlimited and no port blocking.

The price is about half of what I'm currently paying for a "up to 8 meg" connection or if I upgraded to a "upto 24 meg" connection on my current ISP.



Should I avoid or risk a 12 months contract, they offer a 30 day get out ?


Thank you.

Well unless you found something I can't, I wouldn't be too happy about a site where you can't fine the package prices.

They have been mentioned here before. The original company went bust. Dissolved 1 Oct 2010.

The last I see on these forums is this post and the two later ones, implying that user was being supplied through Tiscali, which is of course now TalkTalk.

It could be they are just reselling many different services from BT/TalkTalk/Entanet/Daisy or wherever.

What specific package, (details of and price), have they offered you? That might give a clue.

Hmmmm.

Whisch exchange is it please, and can you post your current line stats?

2.2Mbps upload is Annex M. A strange offering unless you chose it from a selection of a few.

Huh! What's secret about your line stats? Post them so we can all assess then.

How do you know you'll benefit from an "up to 24 Meg" connection? Your router stats would have told us had you not secreted them shocked.

I put my # in that site. It told me I could get 4.7 Meg on my 19 meg line frown. So much for relying on that!
