Patchy service (*)
Speed, makes sense of Information Highway at last. Tech support is only a local call charge!
Not everywhere cabled-out. Expensive compared to ADSL 'deals' (*)
quite cheap for fourteen hours per day
slower connection time (*)
NTL
good value for money unmetered 24hours a day, £15 of free phone calls for BT customers in non-NTL area
technical support at £1/min, response to e-mails is slow, communication between departments & customer service is poor, almost impossible to leave/end contract with NTL!! (*)
Whe it works it's OK. Fairly cheap deals.
When it doesn't work, you might as well talk to the wall. Slow and unreliable. (*)
They CLAIM up to 8Mbps LIVEBOX speed ~ can connect 2 computers via Ethernet plus 6 wireless
MY PERFECTLY ADEQUATE WANADOO Broadband connection disappeared OVERNIGHT for over two months! (*)
Completely free, no subscription fees, no dial-up charges during designated hours
None so far for me, but people have found it difficult to get through at times (*)
good content, no logon problems
slow mail server (*)
Speed, always-on, flat-rate charge, leaves phone line free for voice calls
expensive, seriously crap news server, only available in areas of high population, must have a BT line, must have a credit card or Visa Delta card, less than fantastic technical support, poor customer service, extra software, can't use it with Opera (*)
Fast , efficient Customer Service
Have to have an NTL phone line (*)
similar by Name (A-Z) (G)
Community-orientated, no adverts, free membership (without stupid 'limits'), unlimited messaging...
No chat room yet. (*)
makes you realise how vulnerable you are
none (*)
Handy little utility that saves your information and fill the forms for you
Invasion of privacy (*)
Less irrelevant listings in commercial categories than almost any other search engine.
Non commercial stuff is just the same Inktomi database you find in many other search engines. (*)
prizes, variety of games
IMPOSSIBLE to win, pop-up ads (*)
