    If your sole criteria is price, you’ll not beat PlusNet, they’re the cheapest in the country for standalone ADSL currently.

    There’s cheaper to be had if you factor in other things. For instance, if you get the base package and already have a mobile with them, O2 is like £2/month or something silly. The basic Sky ADSL is free so long as you migrate your land line to them.

    Any other questions? (-:

    Free. TalkTalk.

    You’re overpaying for that.

    BE Broadband everytime. Maybe not the cheapest (but still cheap), and afaik they dont do line rental, but it is a very good service. Great customer care and they dont throttle or restrict your bandwidth.

    Be is limited in availability, if its at your exchange I’d go for it.
    Im paying £24pm for Sky line, calls and BB and its fine. Make sure their LLU product is available first, otherwise you’ll be on a std BT sourced product, which does get throttled at peak times.

    BE Broadband

    O2’s LLU offering is BE Internet rebadged. If you can get BE and have an O2 mobile, you can get the same product cheaper (I think you save about a fiver a month).

    Thanks guys. Looks like I’m fairly limited in what I can get – ADSL or ADSL Max. Sky came in at £28/month as I’m outside their normal region. PlusNet still winning!

    Yeah, that’s BT Wholesale for you.

    Yep, if you buy their BT based service there is a surcharge of about £6 IIRC.

    Are you worried about fair use policy or throttling?

    Not really, just going to use it for email and browsing, occasionally music and iplayer watching I guess too.

    I’m busy and too lazy to shop around. Can we have a little competition? Who’s got the cheapest line rental + broadband package, how much, and who with? Currently PlusNet is in the lead…

    Cheers!

    Well I player watching at peak time could be interesting with some of the cheaper ISP’s

    I’ve told the netowrk engineers at my place that if they try to “traffic shape” me, I’ll throttle them..!

    But they’re network engineers, so they’re too busy playing with Junipers and Redbacks….

    Virgin do traffic shaping (during peak times) on their ADSL network if that bothers you.

    We pay £24 inc landline rental (all inclusive with Virgin National)
