“BT SOMETIME”

published 07/11/2001

BT Disconnects people for fun

Anyone who is familiar with BT Internet will know this opinion isn’t going to be singing any praises! Bt Internet charges customers £14.99 per month for their “Anytime” service. This service apparently allows customers to connect 24/7 - hence the name “Anytime”. What BT fails to make clear is...

I've been with BT Internet for several months now and on the whole I have to say that I am very disapointed. Quite apart from the annoying 2 hour cut off period and the off peak access period only covering 6pm-12am weekdays this ISP has a whole host of problems: Firstly it hardly ever connects on...

There has been a list of problems with BTI since I can remember such as an IP address range having more bad days than good ( 62.7 range for all you who are on BT and know LOL ), and then there is the diabolical download speeds that BT try to pass off as the normal for their service - try 1 k on a...

I used BT Internet's ISDN service & now use it just as a backup service to my current ISP. The ISDN service was a great dissapointment for the amount it cost on rental and phone calls, but that was down to BT ISDN and not, aparrently, BT Internet. The only reall problems I had were the occasional...

Surftime - off peak option -------------------------- I have been a happy customer of BTinternet Surftime ever since it's inception. The price is £5.99 + £4 for the Surftime element. It has come to light today via an email from BT that they are to raise the price by £2. For £9.99 (or after 1st...

Having used the internet for about 6 years now, I have experienced most internet service providers. They all have their advantages and disadvantages, as do most companies. However I do find them all very similar. BT Internet is the latest in my line of ISP’s. I was mainly drawn to them for the...

2 hour cut-off, bad conenction, slow service

We joined BT Internet on the recommendation from a friend who happened to work for BT. We joined up and were delighted with the free access although the 2 hour cutoff point was a bit of a pain. Then we started to have problems. First the service became so slow that it would often take ages to log...

Not for me

In some remote places, BT is the only option

They know they are the only option

Yes, I know . . . I’m deeply ashamed of my absence. And most who read this won’t even know me, such is the passage of time. However much it is nice to touch base, and catch up with a few old friends, stalwarts and worthies here, my primary reason for returning to the fray is simply this. If you...

“ISDN Service No Good”

published 25/01/2001

Free at weekends, after 6

Slow, no good for games

I have been using the BT Internet ISP for internet access for a couple of years now. I first started using it with a 33.6 kbps modem, and it performed reasonably well for the hardware I had - about 3kb/sec downloads. Then I moved on to a 56 kbps modem - and I have about 4kb/sec downloads. Quite...

Fixed rate access, 24/7, £14.99 a month

None at present

I've been using the internet since January 1999, and there have been quite a lot of changes in that time. In the early days, accessing the internet was through a local rate phone number but this was still expensive for anyone using the internet for more than 15 hours per week. Other, supposedly...

The new BTopenworld with Btinternet. I am proud of being a Btinternet customer. When I last wrote my op on BTinternet anytime, little did I realize that there were going to be changes. They are still continuing to make further goals in improving their site for their customers like me. Btinternet...

Good

Reasonable monthly price

Since they decided I was a 'high' user too many

I have always been a fan of BT internet. I was one of their first customers to sign up when they released the free evenings and weekends access and have remained loyal ever since, including an upgrade to their Anytime package (£14.99/month) and a second BT line when we recently moved house. I had...

~ Anytime, or so they say. The latest package deal from BTInternet offers 24/7 free call access for a monthly rate of £14.99, they call this service Anytime. I was intrigued to see if this service could match that of their very reliable pay-as-you-go service I had used during my times of...

BT INTERNET When I got my new pc one of the first things I wanted to do was to get the Internet, so I kept asking my mum to get the internet and telling her about all the good prices on offer out there and that I really needed it for my home work (lol). Then about six months later she telephoned...

fast connection good value for money.

The BT surftime package I have been with for some 6 months now is in my opinion excellent value for money and has saved me around £30.00 per quarter based on my phone bills prior to this. The dial up speed for my 56k modem normally gets as high as 44kbps and I have never had an engaged tone in...
