Which ISP (no LLU)


[link to this post]
 
Hi

A relative has asked me for advice - what's his best option for low usage on an exchange with only ADSL Max available (Maze)?

Price is important to him but as we all know it's not everything, also packages are fine as he is out of contract (currently has a phone line without ADSL).

Thanks

Have you checked FTTC is not available to him? Some areas of Maze have it, even though only ADSL Max is there on ordinary broadband.

The best checker for that is this one, using the phone number. The address one is probably OK, but the post code one unreliable.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 55.8/14.5Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Unfortunately its not, only ADSL Max at "up to 1" Mbps. Thanks for the info though.

In reply to a post by RobertoS:
So even ADSL isn't much cop frown.

How much does he pay now, and does he use the ISP's email so would possibly need to change, or something like gmail?


"(currently has a phone line without ADSL)" <-- massive clue in why that question was a silly one.. tongue

Use samknows.com to see what service providers are available to them.

If the relative has SKY TV and SKY LLU is available then start the service with that. BB for free or £7.50. Phone line around £15.xx or cheaper if paid as a 1 year one of cost.

Same for talktalk if that is available

You could then use Vivaciti.net if the above is not available..

He doesn't have SKY TV and there are no LLU services available at the exchange (Maze).

Is Vivaciti his best option at £14.56?

Samknows is often so out of date it is often missleading. I had FTTC for almost a year before Samknows stated it was available. Many, many others over the net have posted a similar story. Samknows probably always needs the cavet that it could be hopelessly out of date, especially regards FTTC. Still worth checking but if it's listed it's probably been available for some time!

There is PlusNet Essentials Broadband and calls, at £14.50 for line rental including free weekends and £12.99pm (not the £5.99 shown as "from") for a 12-month term broadband.

Vivaciti however is another ISP that I have often recommended.
