Wireless Internet Connection questions

  Rhuddlan 18:42 13 Oct 05

Hi there, my friends next door don't currentley have a landline or a computer for that matter, (they only seem to beleive in moblie's) anyway their 12 yr old daughter wants a computer for christmas they decided to invest in one after much persuison from their daughter and resassurance from myself to tell them that it is safe it you use it the correct way. Anyway, someone has told them that they don't need a phone line in their home to recieve BB, their friend has said he has got a wireless internet connection without the use of a landline, I said I haven't heared of that, can anyone enlighten me? I suggested to them getting Wanadoo BB at £17.99 a month, as I have that and find it great plus easy to set up (for most of us anyway) Hope someone can help?

Could the friend be using someone elses Wi-Fi connection surrepticiously?

At home they could use satellite but would be cheaper with a landline

If they have cable TV they can connect using NTL / telewest.

I use satellite. 4Mb download with a 512Kb upload. Unlimited downloads at £14.99 a month.

The cost would depend on who and how you go with.
