I only seem to be getting crap download speeds after I requested my migration code. Previously I was able to get the full 730KB/s out of my line.

I've just had problems with drop-outs and was basically after a cheaper ISP with comparable/improved service. Doesn't look like one exists though :(

hehe, I googled and got this god knows what they are like though. Site looks a wee bit amateurish.

I've not heard any reports of Sky Broadband but they can get up to 16mb at quite cheap per month.

Best. Site. Ever. :p :D

Looks like they only provide 8mb to LLU exchanges though, so I can't even get 8mb with them :D

Sky are the same, can only get the fast stuff from an LLU exchange.

I may just move. :D

Mrgh, just found out that Pipex actually own Nildram and have done for about 2 years now. You learn something new every day.

Yeah, but if you move to Pipex then you get improved HoffPower to your line.

Teh Hoff scares me. Not to mention Pipex filter P2P to within an inch of its life :D

I've still not found a decent replacement for Nildram :(

don't touch pipex with someone else's barge pole - hoff or no hoff!

absolutely appalling - and you are tied to 12 month contract, regardless of the less than dial speeds they provide.

currently trying to get out the contract - hence enquiries about nildram
have heard good things - but could they be going pear shaped as they are owned by pipex?
at least you are only tied to a monthly contract...

pipex are getting there hands on a lot of stuff which goes down hill rapidly.

Really I recommedn bethere for LLU enabled folks and Zen for non LLU folks.

There's not a UK ISP on that list which doesn't filter P2P or reduce bandwidth.

Great state the UK's connectivity is in :(

just FYI, anyone looking to sign up with Be if you use the promotion code "christmas" (no quotes) you'll get free connection... I just used it to get Be on my newly activated phone line.

Stop mocking us with your 'Be' connectivity! :p

They need to spread the LLU-ness more :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
