    Wannado just screwed me - I had an old freeserver (unlimited) 512 account, I have to reregister for the 30gb a month limit - not happy about that..

    if you have a DSL provider with no limited and possibly <£30/month please let me know.

    Thx.

    WTF are you downloading at more than 30Gb/Month?

    Here I was thinking 2Gb/Mo. was fairly reasonable...

    I'd say it was fairly reasonable to need more than a 30gb/month limit...

    I'm with pipex atm, not capped and is ~£21/month iirc. I'm pretty sure the 1mbps plan is just a smidgen under £30/m too.

    I am on Pipex as well. Have to say the service is good and there are usually never any problems. Tech support does take a while to get in touch with though over the phone. 8 out of 10 i'd say :)

    Freedom2surf.net here - not capped and you get your own IP etc etc...

    About the same price as Pipex £19+VAT (£21 ish) and I think it's £29 for the 1MBit.


    Have fun

    No download cap, think last month I chewed out about 80Gb over the DSL.

    EDIT: ALSO, check www.adslguide.org!!

    I'm with www.free-online.co.uk - £22 per month for 512 down / 256 up, no download cap, static IP address and 250mb of webspace. Pretty good service as well.

    I hate AOL boasting about how their service is unlimited. I mean as if anyone on AOL will know what bandwidth is, let alone how to use 30GB of the stuff...

    We had BT at home, it was a bit average. Didn't quite make 512k on speed tests, and it was all round a bit average. There are better ones for sure :)

    Well duh!!

    If you want fast upload, find a data centre nearby, get them to agree to put a microwave transmitter on their roof, rent out 1u space for a transceiver and pay for the bandwidth. Set up the same at home, and Bob's your uncles neice, you have 45mb both ways at home :)

    Failing that build old 333mhz machines with wifi cards, and peer with all the open APs around you, then setup load balanced transit and off you go, using everyone elses upload as well as yours :)

    OR... just get sdsl put in.

    OR... get BT to run baseband to to your house, install is like £700 but monthly rental is something like £15 or something really small, and that would get you 2.4Mbs (i think basebands that). You could get a bonded pair and push 9.summing.

    See the possibilities are endless, you just have to be willing to pay for it!

    the other alt. is to get a nice leased line from a local ISP. I investigated that even with M8s discount still way too much :sigh:

    when i was setting mine up i had to go with BT (only one available at the time) and I'm stuck with them for another 10 months.
    the competition is so much better now, and BT will be imposing their 15GB limit from "Early 2005".
    Really could have done with a static IP and no limit...
