“Heavy Users Beware”

published 03/10/2001

Pronone if this level of service continues

Consunable to connect

I have, in the past, proclaimed my support for BT Internet and have proudly announced that, to date, I have not encountered any serious problems. However, during the past two weeks, I have had virtually no internet connection. (no pun intended) I have used BT for years, initially paying initially...

“Losing Faith with BT Anytime”

published 28/09/2001

ProNo extra phone charges

ConsPoor connection, trouble dialling in

I’ve been with BT Anytime since it was introduced earlier in the year. Prior to being with BT I was with AOL, NTL and Freeserve. I started off using the BT Evenings service but swiftly changed to the Anytime package as soon as it became available. It made sense for me to switch to 24/7...

“BT Anytime, a quality ISP”

published 29/05/2001

ProOne off payment, good customer service

ConsNone.

As a monopoly BT in the UK is despised by many and try as we might to complain about the services they offer, mostly justifiably, I have actually found a good service offered by them….strange! I was sick of huge internet bills and decided to look for an ISP that offered 24/7 access for a...

“BT SOMETIMES”

published 27/02/2002

ProNo call charges whilst connected.

ConsFrequent disconnection.

We changed our Internet service provider (ISP) recently, from the BT surf package, to BT Anytime surf package. This was mainly because I was off work with a long-term illness, and what better to do whilst at home but to indulge in a spot of surfing without the worry of running up a huge phone...

BT Openworld (or BTInternet as they were then) have been my ISP for 4 years now. I was initially attracted to them because they started with a bang and got rave reviews for their great service and they quickly hoovered up a lot of disgruntled surfers who were with ‘smaller’ ISPs at...

Fact: BT are taking money from anytime subscribers and deliberately withholding from them the service they have paid for. Fact: No one in government seems to care about what I think should be a HIGHLY ILLEGAL practice. At the very least, they should be sued under some piece of consumer...

ProGood at first

ConsIt didn't last

After being introduced to the wonders of the Net at work five years ago, I went online at home early in 2000. As my day job is only 40 weeks per year and I do a large amount of freelance writing and researching at home (maybe full-time one day), I wanted an ISP which would give me unlimited, or...

“BT Sometime”

After much consideration I decided to write this opinion before going to the USA, as I felt with the current climate this should be posted sooner, rather than later. ~~~0o0o0~~~ I have been a member of BTanytime since it started 18 months ago, and until the middle of September I would have...

I subscribed to BT anytime (the 24/7 service) about 4 months ago. It costs 14.99 per month (automatically deducted from your bank account each month) and gives you 5 email addresses and 10mb of web space. As you have probably noticed, CIAO seems to be full of bad ops written about the anytime...

Thinking of changing or looking for an I.S.P. why not read on then you can decide to choose whether this is the package you are looking for or not.

ProGood content, reliable service.

ConsSometimes around 6pm it's hard to log on

BT Anytime has been an option since about March 2001. Previously for a tenner a month you could go online, unmetered with a freephone number between 6pm and 8am. Now it's £15 a month (without other options such as surftime) for all-in access. One good thing I've noticed about the new service is...
