I don't think so, as it is all calculated at their end... I really want to switch ISPs away from BT as the packetloss is high, and that makes it horrible for online games.

I changed from bt anytime to aol after getting the bt e-mail saying I was over using the service. As far as I am concerned aol are better than bt, and if you change ur bt anytime account to a bt pay as you go account you can keep your e-mail address as well

BT....

I used to use their service - BT NO Time

Turns out the program watchdog spoke to some employees and they told them that they were actively disconnecting 'Anytime' customers as they didn't make themselves much profit!!!

Hence when I was on Anytime it could take 30 connection attempts to pick up e-mail and then I got disconnected 5mins later. If I dialed up on the pay-as-you go package. I got on straight away and never got cut off!

Anyway, BT are dying in Edinburgh as they only have analogue exchanges and Telelwest was my only option for broadband...

And I have never looked back since.... EXCELLENT service for £25 quid a month flat fair.
