BroadBand Topic

Why not create a Broadband topic so it gives other users a chance to have their say about the good and the bad. It will be usefull for people needing help with poor download speeds etc.

ADSL in the UK is normally a 512kbps d/l and 640 kbps u/l connection for about £23.99 pm. Bit poor to be honest, downloads through irc are terrible, if you drop below 50kbps they drop your connection.

Now a new ISP has opened the door for users wanting high speed connection for d/l and u/l. They are offering a 1meg = 5.5mbit and 2meg = 11mbit, which is pretty good.

Seems expensive from what I have read, so I have just signed with pipex.com so I should be up and running b4 the end of the month, bye bye too 56k dial up :slight_smile:

Here is a 150% legal url where users can go and have a read and see if it fits the bill.

This and a few others threads discuss broadband internet.

I will install one or two Ntopia lines to my office. FTTH is more reliable than ADSL, VDSL, and cable. I have encountered no connection loss so far.

If I left 56K behind for broadband, I fear the internet would take over my life more than it has already. I’ve got to the stage where I feel nervous if I’m at home and not downloading something.

Where do you get this from? ADSL is normally 512Kbps down and 256up - never seen those figures before. Maybe that crap ISP you are quoting from is the problem. I use IRC on ADSL and I can get things from a couple of KB/s to 62KB/s. I may not frequent the dodgy movie IRC channels / Fserves you may be on about. Still, I know people who are in queues and get stuff real slow - they do not drop off.

I fear what I’d have to use when I am in another country.
