Hi,

I am thinking of getting a cheap broadband connection. Can n e 1 recommend a server??

I am hoping to get it for under £20 / month.

Also, am I right in thinking that when you have it, you can use to lines (one for the internet, and one for phone) without paying extra line rental?? (as this is the main reason I want to get it.)

Thanks, tom

There is an abundance of ISP's offering good deals on broadband, I use PlusNet. You can get an easystart package where you don't have to pay for your modem or activation at £24.99 per month or for the same 512kbps service with a £59.99 payment but no activation charge at the moment costs £18.99 per month click here You can check out and compare the various ISP's here click here HTH TR

Tom, yes, you can use broadband and the phone at the same time. They're both on the same line, so you don't get two lines as such.

Thx for your help.

I've found DSL Net (£15.99) at click here . Do you think this will stay this price, once I've got it, or will it start going up in price?

Thanks

tom

it's only 3 x faster and should stay at that price, although it may not be available in all areas - I don't know, although they offer faster speeds for £20

click here tiscali do a similar service I do know that this is only available in certain areas. They also offer 5 x faster for £19.99 per month in all areas that can get BB.

click here have a pay as you go service available which costs from £11.75 to a maximum of £28 a month depending on how much data is uploaded/downloaded, 200 mb allowance for the minimum cost then just under £3 for every gigabyte - downsides no email service - you have to continue with a pop3 account or pay extra for this and a £69 activation fee - the speed is 10 x faster and gets good reviews from users.
