Looking for a new ISP to go ADSLMax with (rather than the lowish data rate I’m currently on). After a cheap low-usage deal, as currently I just scrape under my 5GB total cap – really need a bit more with the new laptop meaning I’m likely to use iPlayer a bit more, but 3GB peak, 30GB off-peak (as seems popular) will probably do, as I can schedule downloads for off-peak, though off-peak starting at 10pm (or even 8pm as I’ve seen with a quick search) would be handy for this.
Would really like something for less than the Â¬Â£18 I’m currently paying, though might go up to Â¬Â£20 a month if it was worth the difference. Mainly browsing, some downloading (though not doing much if any music / videos / bittorrent stuff), and some on-line gaming, so decent pings and no throttling would be good. Who do you lot use?
Should have pointed out, since recommendations always seem to be for LLU or cable, that I can’t get either here (and can’t foresee a time when I will be able to). After plain old BT line ADSL. Also unlikely to be able to get any sort of enhanced service unless 99%+ of the population can get it. Nor do I have a monthly mobile contract or satellite TV contract with which I can get a better broadband deal (on OVP Virgin and Orange PAYG – monthly bills between Â¬Â£0 and Â¬Â£10!)
…checked O2, and surprise, surprise I’m out of their network area, so not being an O2 customer it would cost me Â¬Â£22 a month.
