I use ADSL24, a UK provider with the customer services based in Manchester. They are excellent. I haven't had any disconnections or speed drops in the 5 years I've been with them. If there is going to be a problem eg. an upgrade, they phone you to warn you before hand.

You can run a speed test online which also advises you of the packages available. They don't over subscribe, hence consistent speeds. Well worth checking out.

your all lucky you get to choose your isp Smile where I live we have kingston communications and no other companies are able to operate in the city because KC charge them to much in line rental and with internet speeds like this its so frustrating. Sad

If I were you Debbie, I would be lambasting my local MP, etc; etc.

It just is not good enough in today's world

I know they were the bees knees at one time, with free local calls etc; but they need to enter the real world

There is this , but it isn't cheap

Just Bing'd the issue & it is awful.

No wonder some of the mobile BB packages are so popular there

Thanks Tomcat didn't know about Hull broadband, don't think we can stretch to 45 a month and 150 installation for it though, so were stuck with KC for the time being. These companies do pop up every now and then but because of KC's line rental they have to charge double sometimes treble the amount other braodband suppliers charge and they generally don't last long. Although there is talk about fibre optic companies coming into Hull who won't need to use KC's lines. Hopefully that'll happen sooner rather then later.

In the meantime, fire a few letters/e-mails off to Ofcom

Good thing about living in Blackpool is Virgin use us for testing hardware upgrades so we are often presented with speeds like this



If I had to go back to BT (Which will cost me a 150 quid reconnection fee) then Plus. Net will be my ISP of choice.
