SECOND NOTICE: YOU ARE STILL IN BREACH OF OUR TERMS & CONDITIONS
We refer to our previous email regarding your BTopenworld account.

Unfortunately, as we informed you in our earlier email, this is a breach of our Terms & Conditions. To review these, please go to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
We are sorry to tell you that your account will be terminated from 28th September 2002, in accordance with our Terms & Conditions (paragraph14 (b)).
If you use a BTopenworld for BT Surf Package please note that only your BTopenworld for BT Surf Package will be terminated. If you no longer need your separate BT Surf Package, you should cancel it by calling BT Retail on 150 using a BT line.

ive been warned of this 3 times now off these cunts.. and this time i think i pushed it too far... well they cancelling my account, so now i need a new ISP...
so who do u recommend.. id like to get anytime connection and least amount of cutoffs possible... and no i dont have BroadBand enabled on my exchange
what isps are decent price and service with a anytime connection?
also... anyone have any idea if bt will still let me use my ftp space and email addy?? i doubt it, but im not sure.. which is gonna be a major pain in the ass
AOL beacuse i couldnt access n e thing out side the aol world for the hole of 2 day YEH!
or try ntl the normal ntl not cable we had ntl ages ago and they were gr8 part from 2 hour cut off but thats easy just to reconnect unlike aol who dont ave a 2 hour cut off but idal time cut off so just leave irc running and it looks like ur busy sorted ( that wot i did till i got bb)
(17:18:34) (+Cam) i need to mount my xbox hdd in linux
(17:19:02) (+SpikeWork) youth of today, they'll mount anything
Originally posted by ABCMan fair few of the 56kers on the hub use freeserve and that seems to work well for them
hmm.. ye was thinking about freeserve.. heard its a decent service...
i really couldnt give a flying fuck about losin my bt connection, cos they were cunts anyhow, but its my email addy and ftp space i dont wanna loose... mail addy especially, i use it for everythin.. spose ill just ave to deal with that...
i checked my connection logs and i cant see any day where my pc has been connected for more than 12 hours...
can anyone look at a bt fone bill and tell me of any help line number or sommat i can fone and bitch pls, i dont have any fone bills in the house that i can cheack for the number
I'd go for aol for an almost always on connection, i don't think ntl are taking new subscribers to ntlworld, i can't find the link to request the cd ,shame because they were excellent and i'd have them back antime.
At the moment i'm with glo-telecom for £10per month 24/7, they were good at first but it's getting to be a bitch to connect.
To be honest i don't think there's a decent reliable 56k 24/7 isp out there, although if you do find one please post it.
i've heard Firenet are good but don't quote me
edit: i used freeserve for 2 months and found them tooooo sloooooww for browsing, takes a week for pages to load, not bad d/l speeds though.

I have had aol dial-up for years , and to be honest find it a very good service , i never got cut off and my pc was on for days and days at a time .
I have 1mb with blueyonder now , but have still kept my aol account open , as i find some parts of their service second to none .
Originally posted by marcode see the only disagreement i have with aol is their shite software that plants itself all over ya pc... can u connect to aol with out installing their software?
there's probably a proggy somewhere that does this... AOL was fine (when it doesn't cut you off) When I had it sometimes it was excellent other times it cuts you off every few minutes or only connects or 28.8 or even worse lol! anyway when it works it doesn't have a cut off - i downloaded xp on it lol - took me a week but i did it

You dont need to lose your email addy with BT, I used to be with BT about 18 months ago then went to freeserve (OKish) then went to Surfanytime (Rubbish) then went to ADSL. However I still use my BT account wich can be checked form my current ISP Plusnet (no probs yet). Only problem is I cant send mail from my bt account.

Just the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
