Any good/reliable, good value isp around?
I looked at www.ispreview.co.uk
The trouble is if you are already caught up in a contract with BT. This restriction (below) stops me sending mail via my domain hosted by another ISP and I face heavy penaltires for leaving ... like pay to the end of the contract. I find it unbelievable; look at the ladt sentence ... the restriction reads like a favour to the customer...
"to further improve security to our business customers and reduce spam we are making some changes to our SMTP mail servers. From Friday 6 June if you are using Oulook express or another mail client and connecting to the Internet using a service provider other than BT Openworld broadband business you will need to use our authenticated e-mail feature to send e-mails via BT connect servers. This feature makes sure that only BT Openworld broadband business account holders can send e-mail using our mail servers."|
There are plenty of other broadband providers besides BT. Check out http://www.adslguide.org.uk/ for more info.|
|Hey Colin, it just got worse. I hadn't seen your note and posted under epic = ISP|
|Get with it you GEEK this is a "Financial" BB|
Well unless you go abroad the sunbathing will soon be at an end.............. until next year!|
I'm trying to find time to trade but demands on my time are still excessive. The good news is that these demands are now mainly holidays, sunbathing, dog-walking etc. :)|
Are you finding plenty of time to trade now? ;-)
|I have just been booted off BT Connect for leaving the connection open all day.
They asked me to downgrade my account to pay as you go which means that I can keep my email accounts which can be accessed via another ISP. It remains to be seen how long it will be before they realise that I am not using the ISP part of the account.|
|Didn't realise I had option of free 3 month trial on AOL when I bought new laptop a couple of months ago. Signed up today. So have a few weeks to compare services. Pity I can't use Microsoft Outlook Express with it though, although will have to take out BT Pay as you go - if I decide to continue with AOL and cancel BT Anytime.|
|I use www.onetel.net £12.99 a month, v reliable (part of Centrica). Never booted off, usually ultra reliable. Need a BT line, but will dial up from virtually any BT line, I use it home and work same account.|
|I recommend Plusnet www.plus.com
They use CLI to check your number but give you a web page where you can insert up to 4 CLI numbers that they will then accept for you.
You can change any or all of them anytime at your convenience.|
|anybody use Tiscali anytime?
comments + or - both welcome|
Sorry it has taken me so long to reply to your question. You have probably found out already but it is £16 a month and yes it can be used from any landline. I use it also via my mobile but then you have to use an 0845 number aand pay whatever your mobile provider charges.
|I used to use BT anytime and got cut-off for abusing the system, ie using it as if it was an Anytime service (sic). I tried looking around for alternatives but found that similar clauses to BT's existed so in the end I stumped up a little extra per month and am now an ADSL subscriber.
I use Zen Internet (£25.52pm 512k download/256k upload) but there are many other providers, plus of course the Cable option of Telewest Blueyonder service. In the case of adsl you also must add the one-off cost of a modem/router and some splitters for your phone sockets. Really, its the way to go, forget Dial-up, go broadband
|Thanks for the replies.
Having spoken to a few people today and been in the website above, AOL seems to be the best way forward.
I'll test it on a spare PC before the BT Anytime service worsens in November.|
|March - thank for your reply.
ADSL isn't available at the moment.|
|Vanilla - I agree totally - I use Pipex Xtreme Solo ADSL - but I think the point Timeliner made in the opening post was the need for anytime *portable* options. ADSL is great - but it is fixed. If you spend a lot of time on the move, dialup per-minute can be really quite expensive|
starting to spell like blackday (trader's thread)
it should of course be 'review' not 'revue'
|baffled - I just tried www.isprevue.co.uk
"connection with server cannot be established"|
