Switching from Orange in a real slow spot...Who to Use Next?


[link to this post]
 
Free Orange stopping etc, and yes, I have worked out it is cheaper to go sim only to same plan to save £20 a month etc....out of contract anyway.

So live in an area in Sussex where i can only get max 1.6 Mbps at the quickest, Area 3 for BT.

I use, i reckon, about 30GB a month
So who would people recommend?

Want to go BB only, no line rental as we are remote and BT has to come out often to fix the lines.

Would ideally like to save some money.

Dont need the fancy up to 16MB etc as that really not possible.

Just need plain BB.

Thank you

Are you aware that if the broadband is over the telephone line you will have to pay someone for the voice line rental.

You can minimise this with people like Primus Saver though.

Which exchange are you on? There may be the option of TalkTalk and Sky, but they are cheap as its a phone+broadband bundle.

But you already have line & line rental in order to get Orange BB?

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 19 Meg WBC

I understand Orange will continue supplying FREE broadband for some mobile phone contract customers. wink
