Tiscali broadband any good?

  dotterel 23:41 29 Sep 03

I'm thinking of subscribing to their cheaper option which is £20 per month and runs at half the speed of their full broadband service. I will not be downloading files, just browsing. Can anybody recommend it (or not). A search on the forum only gives two people's opinions - contradictory of course! Thanks.

Used it, (512k), for a few months now and no probs. All BB, apart from cable, goes through BT so I would surmise that any delays are down to the area and line quality of which Tiscali have no say in.

I have used the same service as Gandalf for the last 6 months with no problems at all

Even better Tiscali have now got their billing system sorted out so you now pay every month !!!
(Unlike when I had the 56k dial up and run up a 6 month bill before they collected !!!)

I've got the £20 option too, which works fine and is OK for downloading files. Initial problems with bills but sorted now.

Thank you for the info. I'll go ahead with it.

Don't say that nobody didn't warn you! :o

Got that option from Tiscali myself the other day, dotterel, so far no problems. Installation was a breeze, no problems connecting. I was used to dialup downloading at usually a maximum of 4KB per second, now I can download at 32KB per second, that's eight times faster and all for only £5 more than I was paying for dialup. Go for it.

we have tiscali broadband - the package arrived a week earlier than anticipated, the set up is a doddle and have never had a connection problem. -;)

For another £3 you can have standard speed broadband, coupled with the efficient after sales service of a top ISP, with Pipex....:-)

Tiscali service is similar to ordering components from major online suppliers (at least in my case) - delivery is quick and efficient but woe betide if the products are faulty and have to be returned.....:-(
