    hi

    finally getting a mac code of bt the throttling bastards!!

    anyway, have seen adsl24 let you buy in chunks ie 300gb off peak, 30gb peak. i don't mind paying a bit extra as long as the fuckers don't throttle my already meager speed down to 512 during peak times like bt did.

    also its a 1 month rollling contract, so if they're crap i'll just move on. sounds like a good plan right??

    it never slows down at anytime and it truly is unlimited.

    Adsl24 are Entanet resellers if Im not mistaken.

    I was with UKFSN another Entanet seller for 2 years mate on a similar scheme, I think you will find some limiting of speeds just after the off peak times kick in just to spread the loads out but after that its usually full speeds ahead.

    Entanet were fine as far as I was concerned and if your exchange isnt LLU enabled then they are a good option.

    Yeah I was with Headweb who are another Entanet reseller. I only moved to Be because the speed increase I'd be getting. If my exchange wasn't LLU'd then I'd still be with them now.

    Yep same here m8 only went to Sky due to 6MB speed increase and a 9.99/month decrease!

    No m8 your stuck with ADSL Entanet is your best bet, no LLU services on your exchange.

    Hi M8
    you will be fine with enta dude, I am with Titan but ADSL24 are just the same and its fine, although I think James over there has a nicer control panel than titan, other enta ones to consider would be UKFSN and vivaciti.
    they are constantly fighting over top spot on the ratings with other companies who charge more and give far less.
    cheers
