    I need one - bad!

    NTL.co.uk - "Sorry, you live in an uncabled area."

    *sigh*

    I need fast, cheap internet access - im getting fed up of stupid 56k connections.

    Im on a very tight budget - I need something thats cheap - something around less than £25 per month - Im not bothered about speed as long as its fast than 10-15k/s i dont mind too much.

    thx!

    if you were after adsl and aren't in the area,consider a cheaper more effective device.tie 2 empty bean tins together with a 20ft piece of rope.taadaa faster and more reliable than any service bt can offer:cool:

    Of course I have considered - I wouldn't have posted otherwise -

    Satellite is expensive - and that europe online (read above post) is scheduled - you can submit downloads - but you have to pay for extra ISP charges - and dish - abd DVB card.

    As for two-way sat internet - I won't even bother looking into it - I already know the price wont be cheap - thx anywayz.

    "010101110101101010101110101010111101010100010110"

    This might be worth considering, it's a paper detailing a highly advanced new protocol that could mean a nice reliable internet connection to anywhere......

    ISDN - I wanted it but when you add line rental and everything onto it - its around £30 in which case you may as well get ADSL for £34 :/
