Advantages For me it is fast, cheap, efficient and reliable
Disadvantages For others it may not be, it's all relative to your exchange I'm afraid
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.
I have read comments from people who have difficulty in connecting to BTinternet. I can only suggest that this is due to your local exchange.Connection
I connect at 48,000 or 46,777 virtually everytime. Downloads are usually excellent 4kbs +.
Excellent, does the job. Also if you try to log on using the wrong dial up number (there is a daytime one and an evening one) it will give you a warning so you don't incur extra costs by mistake.
Usually excellent, though the email server can go down several times in a month. Also the news server tends to miss out a lot of posts. For example you can be reading newsgroup posts, and you will not be able to follow the postings properly due to some posts not appearing. Slightly frustrating that. I can always get connected though.

So do I recommend BT, well I find it an excellent ISP but consider these points:1. Do you use the internet at daytimes?
2. Do you own a Credit Card?
If yes go to Question 3
If answer is yes to all 3, then it would be more adviseable to use the BTanytime package costing £14.99 (for just £3 extra). This enables you to connect at anytime (as the name would imply). From what I have heard from friends the service is excellent. Though I can only offer the viewpoint of other people who live in Chester.Kev -
