Has anyone got Tiscali broadband ? and what do you think of it ?

I have been using Tiscali Broadband for a while and have no problems wit hit.
Think there was a while ago when it first set up, but always very good now.

In fact, excellent. Took AGES to actually get my hardware and the call centre helpline was shocking, but from knowledge of all other providers (including Telewest and BT) this is never any different.

All I would say is don't go for the cheaper option (£19.99 a month?) as it actually half speed of the full £27.99 a month service.

Don't skimp, you'll regret it!

Took 7 days to get the modem and filters (they said 10 days) and all has been working fine. I'm on £27.99 a month, 512k option. You should not ned the helpline as there is more chance of getting a decent answer here and the software is easy-peasey to set up, just make sure that you read the instructions and follow them to the letter.

If you are surfing and not doing too much downloading, I would go for the cheaper option, as the web surfing speeds are not much different.

ALL ISPs, apart from the cable lot, use BT Broadband so your connection speed will have more to do with your line quality rather than the ISP.

Good to hear that, GANDALF <|:-)>, our exchange was enabled last week (at long last). I'm with Tiscali at the moment and had thought of trying the cheaper option first as I don't download a lot of large files. It's only a fiver more than dialup too, for 5 times the speed.

We changed to tiscali broadband a few weeks ago when our exchange was enabled. Service was excellent - 8 days to receive package and set up was quick and easy.
