    O RLY? Must look into that and hopefully the price drops out its arse so that its more inline with other countries.

    cant wait for the 50meg
    Lol, I download about 100-125gig per day, I might die if I had to do that in a month

    I was with tiscali for years as i could have unlimited download at a preety decent speed,but it cost me with the line rental plus free local calls still around £30-45 per month with ringing mobiles and 0870 numbers.
    Now for some reason talk talk have taken tiscali over,so i'm now with them and received a letter from them today saying there knocking the speed up to 24mg and still unlimited downloads,but its going up by £2, and found out i can only have this package if i sign another 18 month contract,so i'm still looking at monthly payouts of £40-45 for broadband and phone.,would'nt be so bad if they knocked the vat off and if my missus and daughter stopped ringing mobiles from the house phone.
    But from all the bullshit i've heard from all isp providers u never get the speed they say they can offer u,so if they say 8meg your probably looking at 5meg at most.

    Oh yeh reading the above post,any isp always use the exchange as an excuse as to y you can't get the speed they said they could get u,remember you got 14 days to back out of any contract.
