The New Look BT Internet Options

Advantagesquite cheap for fourteen hours per day

Disadvantagesslower connection time

"...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 paid £9.99 for evening and weekend access. I knew that the surftime package was available, but as it only offered the same hours except with the evening access extended ..." Read review

Quite Good Actually

AdvantagesRarely faulty

DisadvantagesCan 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 breeze. All I had to do was visit the btinternet site and have my phone bill handy, the step by step options took me through the rest. One of the reasons ..." Read review

Waste of Time not Money

AdvantagesFast connexion; easy to set up

DisadvantagesDisconnect after 2 hrs; unreliable e-mail service.

"...bill appealed, and because since BT Internet is with BT, it should be fairly reliable. First impressions were favourable -- a good connection speed (which I still obtain almost all the time) of 49,333bps, an e-mail name I wanted, rather than one thrown at you by the ISP as so often happens, and first-time access. If only this were the case for the rest of the time; although I still use BT Internet every evening, the number of evenings where e-mails ..." Read review

ITS TIME TO SURF.......

AdvantagesGood reliablility

DisadvantagesCosts 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 few instances over the year in which it just wouldn’t connect, but a few times in a year is nothing much to complain about. Connection is always ..." Read review

BT Surf packages - The easy way to surf

Advantagesfree internet calls, no seperate bill - added to your BT bill

Disadvantagesdifferent options can be confusing to begin with

"...will see). This opinion is about BT and their internet-ready services, including their 'Surf' packages and their ISP - BT Internet. Ever since RedHotAnt jumped ship with their up-front yearly payment for unlimited internet access, I've been using BT Internet alongside one of BTs 'Surf' packages. Another reason for me choosing BT Internet was because I recently bought my own house, which has a BT phone line and found it relatively easy to sign-up ..." Read review
