Not for me

“not so free”

published 10/08/2000

none

good chance of getting caught

Free internet calls are certainly possible but you need to do plenty of research before you insert any disks sent by mail or posted on your favourite magazine, some companies are not above giving a false impression of their service .My experience of this practice was after inserting the disk with...

Excellent

good content, no logon problems

slow mail server

You might think that all ISPs are the same but they're not. Consider a superior ISP that will give you great service and free gifts for signing up. Stop and think for a minute. Just how happy are you with your current Internet Service Provider? Are you having any trouble logging on? Do you fail...

a satisfying and loving realtionship

50p per minute helpline costs

My tempestuous relationship with Freeserve SurfTime ended in acrimony earlier this year. To be honest, the relationship had been on the rocks for a long time, and I was relieved when it was over. Freeserve had initially been charging me £5 per month for off-peak internet access, but this...

reliable service

suffers occasional disconnections

Lineone have provided me so far with a trouble free service and offer a very competitive deal. I am on the unlimited weekend and off peak tariff and apart from the odd disconnection has been trouble free. I 've read a lot of the reports on Ciao about Lineone and they are taking some stick over...

This used to be my ISP, and during the time I used it, was one of the better ISP's that I have subscribed to over the last 18 months. I signed up during the early part of 2000, to take advantage of the Quip offer. While the offer was active I was really impressed and the few times that it was...

Lineone offer local call rate access (who wants that!) which is totally free or lineone surftime meaning free internet calls at offpeak times(evenings,weekends) for a fee of £10 a month with peak access only charged at 1p a minute. I subscribed to their surftime package as I'd got pretty sick of...

“Number One”

published 21/10/2001

lots of features

?

LineOne is an ISP for which you pay £9.99 a month and get unmetered offpeak access. Peak access costs only 1p per minute. These are reasonable rates and well worth the price. This is fine for someone like me who only needs the Internet in the evening after a long hard day’s work! The...

Appears to be reliable now

None so far

Since the demise of Lineone Quip from which I had no problems at all, I made the mistake of registering for Lineone Surftime which is when my problems began. Almost immediatly I started to get disconnected after about 20 minutes, emails to Lineone,s help line, which were usually answered within...

None I have found yet

I only joined Line One about 6 weeks ago which was therefore after their 'free' offer. I have been totally impressed with the service (however, I was with RedHotAnt before so it probably wouldn't take much). I received a trial offer disk through the post for their pay per minute service which I...

Fast connection, Very few redials, Good price

No 24hr option

A reliable, speedy, affordable ISP? In Britain? Surely not! Well, with LineOne the dream is a reality. I've been using this service for around 8 months now after an absolute horror with BT Internet and previously ic24, FreeNetName and even AOL (back in my "newbie" days). Never before have a come...

I chose Lineone as my first ISP when i first starting accessing the internet about 3 years ago (*sniff* nostalgia) and at the time was on a pay as you go local call rates service and had completely trouble free access with them. I enjoyed and made good use of their no-frills simple but good...

“Disgusted”

published 17/07/2000

Nothing, ZIp, previous free service gone

Cannot trust them to keep their promises

Why did I join lineone? I joined because of the advertising campaign. Free access 24 hours with a one off payment to a company called Quip of £20 for a call router. I subscribed and after a few minor teething problems, was connected and very impressed. The connection time was slow, but heh this...

Money grabbing fat cats....

oh wait, that should be here..

Okay. For the past two months I have been living the high life. I have had 100% free internet access with Lineone/Quip. Apart from the 5 pound per month, but that could easily be paid for in phone calls to peoples, so it was essentially free. Now on Sunday morning, I get an email from Lineone...

“It's a rip off!”

published 13/09/2000

It was a good offer

Obviously not sustainable

I too was impressed with Lineone's free internet facility. Ok, so the Quip phone call rates were no better than Bt for local or national calls, which was very misleading of them in the first place, but for free internet each month for only making a fiver's worth of calls, I still considered it to...
