    Nildram broadband - 512 down 256 up for around £22 a month - no download limit - Call of Duty ping of around 50 on a wireless network with 2 (laptop and desktop) sharing a Netgear modem. Can't get the feckers to talk to each other though.

    I'm on BT Broadband, actual transfer speeds 576 down 288 up.

    I had a letter from them yesterday informing me that they have reduced the charges to £24.99 pm from £27 pm as from 1st July (paid by Direct Debit). They also informed me that they will be introducing a download limit of 15GB a month from early 2005.

    I wouldn't be surprised if all service providers introduce the same limit on downloads by early 2005 as I can't see BT doing it and hoping to compete with other providers who don't.

    The cost of the 1 Meg BT Broadband has also fallen to £28.99 pm with a 30GB monthly download limit. I upgraded my account to this yesterday, but it will not come into effect for 7 days, which is a shame.

    I'm looking at getting broadband from Central-Point or NDO, probably the latter as it should be connected within a few days :)

    I'm with Pipex B/B - god knows what speed but it seems fast enough, stable connection and the price isn't bad, unlimited use 24/7.

    PS Not able to get cable where we live - street far too small...can't get cable TV either and have only just got B/B here.... was on dial up b4 and it took for ages, could boil a kettle, make a cuppa etc...etc... b4 I could download what I wanted. The B/B connection I have is quite awsome by my standards in comparison!

    Im the same as you PSD.. Dial Up but its more like... Wind Up Clockwork Connection!
    Trust Communicator 56k ESP2 Modem

    Its so slow at times that i wonder if its working at all ..:)

    Its better than nothing, it does me very well for now though and its all i need at the moment.. it would nice to be faster but that will be in the future..:)
