Good reliablility

Costs you money

BT Surf Time is another one of many internet packages offered by BT. It allows you to surf the interbet off-peak (6pm to 8am weekdays and 6pm till 8am Monday at weekends). ***CONNECTION /RELIABILITY*** Connection to Bt internet is always relatively good, every time it connects. There have been a...

“Quite Good Actually”

published 03/10/2001

Rarely faulty

Can get slow sometimes

I first joined the BT Surftime package during June of the year 2000, about that time there was all the buzz of BT creating unmetered packages available for a set price. Probaly a good move as more and more households were accessing the worldwide web. If my memory serves me correct, sign up was a...

“Waste of Time not Money”

published 26/06/2001

Fast connexion; easy to set up

Disconnect after 2 hrs; unreliable e-mail service.

We signed up to BTInternet Surftime last August and overall, service has been satisfactory. Compared to our previous ISP, LineOne, it is nothing but at the time LineOne was not on SurfTime, or if it was they had not done as promised and contacted us. We decided therefore to go with BTInternet...

quite cheap for fourteen hours per day

slower connection time

Well, some of the opinions on here are about BT Internet surftime, but BT have changed it all, and this is what it is NOW all about. First of I think it is important to write about my circumstances before going into too much depth about the service. I had been with BT Internet for some months, I...

different options can be confusing to begin with

Internet Service Providers, or ISPs as we hear them called - we all use them, and hence, there are hundreds of them to choose from. Some are good, offering a reliable and consistent level of service, whilst others are appalling (see my opinion about my experiences with RedHotAnt and you will see)...

“Is Your Boiler Irrational”

published 22/11/2001

None found so far.

Aspen reckons it's sh*te, but you may have a diffe...

So asks the pop-up. Which - forgive me - has f*ck all to do with BTsurftime. In my humble opinion. But what do I know? After all, so many of these big companies are inter-related . . . Except that, when you sign up for BTsurftime, suddenly you are bombarded with unsolicited boiler questions...

“BT SURFTIME”

published 10/10/2001

Free Online Time

The BT Curfew

BT SURFTIME is most probably the most easiest more relaxed way to weigh out those phone bills, for just £9.99 a month you are eligible to receiver free internet time, on Mon, Tue, Wed, and Thu from 6pm straight through to 8am the next day for example Mon 6pm-Tues 8am, and so on. Once you get to...

Hidden extras

Along with everyone else, we signed up for an unlimited Internet package last Summer. We bought a £20 disc at Comet for the Libertysurf service, which offered free evening and weekend Internet calls. This worked really well for a couple of months, so we decided to upgrade to Libertysurf’s...

Bit slow nown again, customer service is terrible

I have only just signed up for BT Surftime and I’ve gone through my little experiences with BT, let me tell you. The reason why I wanted to go with BT Surftime was because my Internet phone bill was becoming ridiculously high. I was sick of my phone bill coming through to me in the three...

“That sinking feeling”

published 09/07/2001

Can surf at evening and weekends

they don't make the prices clear

In late 2000 to April 2001 I was using company called Connect 25 for my free Internet connections. The company was great and at the time had no problems with connecting or slowdowns. It cost £25 a year for 24/7 0800 access and was a dream come true. Especially through the holidays it was good...

“Surftime or Sinktime”

published 31/03/2001

difficult one this

access speed vs cost, bt policy for the future

I have been on the internet for a couple of years now and through that time I've been with BT - first with BT Internet and now with BT Surftime. Over time I've become more and more concerned with the speed of connection I achieve with BT. When I lived the other side of town, I managed to get a...

“Cheap And Sometimes Cheerful”

published 13/05/2001

Cheap

Not Compatible With Certain ISPs

First of all I will describe what BT Surftime is then about my dealing with it. BT Surftime is a cheap way to use the net. It costs £5.99 a month and for this price you can be on the net Mondays - Thursdays from 18:00 until 08:00am the next day. Also from Friday 18:00 until Monday 08:00. So for...

great once you find out how to do it

unhelpful sales staff

I joined up to BT Surf time a couple of months ago but they certainly didn't make it easy for me to do so. When I first enquired I was asked what ISP I was using. I informed 'the voice' on the other end of the line that I used Virgin Net. 'Sorry', it replied, 'can't do it with that.' I asked...

Flat fee, no scary phone bills

Complicated for inexperienced users

I use BT Internet SurfTime, on a Macintosh (previously PowerMac 4400, currently a G4) and I haven't had any major problems. Originally I was using virgin.net's freespace but as they didn't offer a number to dial up for free connections, was quite tempted by BT's offer of free Evening and Weekend...

“BT Surf very scarey indeed”

published 18/08/2001

hmmm

Absolute chaos

I thought one day, "I'll ring BT up and ask them some questions I have about their latest net offer", (surf something or other). So I dialed the number on an advert I had been sent (which turns out to be a disc order line) and a machine told me to ring back between 8AM and 10 PM and asked me if I...
