Best ISP UK - Page 2

post #11 of 26
Be Unlimited are actually owned by O2 IIRC, but it's a great ISP. Their known for being the geeks choice given that they have almost 24 hour support on their official IRC channel!

Where in London you moving into? The exchange can make a huge difference. I am moving house at the end of this month and decided I will not live in a certain area because of the shoddy, over-used exchange.

I had talk talk.. Had so many problems with dropping connections and lag etc... After a good shouting down the phone... Our speed doubled, no more random drops and though it was only 8GB a month max downloads, they never bothered us, and I can tell you we went way over that... Currently with sky's unlimited package, which is okay.... No problems yet...
 
Fun inside...

Well, when we had Be Unlimited (this was in Southampton), we could get IIRC, 2200kb/s. At the moment, i'm in London and on Post Office's top end package. It isn't bad in itself, I get 550kb/s download, but the exchange is so over-used it is an unstable connection.

At the family home in the countryside, I have a TalkTalk 8mb/s and it's great. 820kb/s constant download, no data caps and it's stupidly cheap. However, in the countryside, our exchange only serves 300 people in local villages whereas in London, it serves over 10,000.

I recommend Be Broadband.

I've been with them for years, always reliable with good customer service.

I had virgin 20mb for a year but they always throttled us to 5mb and had terrible customer service.

Best of all, no throttling ever!
Haswell fun.

I used to have orange but they throttled the crap out of my connection due to downloading over 200GB in a month... I accidentally left my NAS on when i went on holiday for 3 weeks...
