Wanadoo broadband ...

Today Wanadoo have changed their broadband packages for new customers. All new customers will now get a 1Mbps for the same price as the 512Kbps accounts. The options are as below:

£17.99 1Mbps (2GB cap)
£22.99 1Mbps (6GB cap)
£27.99 1Mbps (30GB cap)

If anyone can't get broadband at 1Mbps then they will get a 512Kbps service for the same price.

At the moment I can't get the 1Mbps service but I hear that BT are making some changes on the 6th Sept that will make this possible. :D

If anyone wants to know (this may have already been discussed) the changes are as follows:

  • distance limits (from BT exchange) for 512Kbps service will be removed (previously 6km);
  • distance limits for 1Mbps will be extended from 4km to 6km.

So - to sum up - what this should mean is that 99.8% of lines connected to a broadband exchange will be able to get 512Kbps and 96% (the same percentage that can get 512Kbps now) will be able to get 1Mbps service. This is obviously what resulted in the changes to Wanadoo's accounts.

what about old customers? :eek:


i still get unlimeted 512k, no caps :D, but 1MB would be sweeeet :D
I think you would have to upgrade to one of the new options which I posted above. As the caps are not being activated until next year I am going to sign up for the £17.99 one and then upgrade once the caps come into effect. :cool:

I may actually be insane.

ugh, caps and a contract. Admittedly the prices aren't as good, but there are many many other ISP's out there offering no caps/limits and on a month-by-month basis rather than contact.

I like that idea, but the bottom line is my exchange hasn't been upgraded anyway.
By the time I get it I will prob. have to go with AOL to avoid a cap.

www.zen.co.uk - no caps, no contract :D
£40 a month for 1Mbps + £60 for activation! You would be better off with Wanadoo 1Mbps 30GB a month of downloads for £27.99 (free activation). Surely 30GB would be enough for anyone? My connection gets used about 3 to 4 hours a day and I never go over 1GB.

Also, why do people hate contracts so much. If the price is good does it matter that your stuck with them for 12 months?

I am gunna say it, you can't beat AOL in the U.K. free modem, no activation fee, free starter months, unlimited downloads (bandwidth) free tech support and I have had a price drop this year already.

I likes their style. Freeserve I would like to applaud as the first free service no fee's you only paid for phone calls, hence freeserve, but, till they match AOL price's, ditch the costly tech support and have uncapped, unlimited downloads they aint getting my monies!

People usually moan about AOL software, you can use a dialer now, so less harsh.

I once got 6 months 56 k for free on a trial from AOL when I changed my isp when I could only get dial-up. I think they're great.
