BACKGROUND As an early internet user, I have been online since the bad old days of 24k modem dial-up access in the early 1990s. I consider myself a fairly sophisticated user, and as such, have tended to be quite picky about my Internet Service Provider (ISP). My first ISP was Easynet, who I first...

When moving home at the end of last year, I was certain of one thing: I was going to get rid of my old Dialup Connection (reviewed on here sometime ago) and switch to Broadband. Dialup was slow, inconvenient (I need to have the phone line free at all times), and no longer suited my browsing...

ProFast access, good pricing, good communications.

ConsSome features need manual activation.

Things were getting dicey in Chez Duke. The amount of time that I was spending on the internet was really starting to annoy the other people who live in this house as they couldn't take or make phone calls. I'd been eyeing up broadband of some description for a while and finally it came down to...

ConsNone That I've Come Across

Pipex have been around for years, they were one of the earliest ISP's in the UK and have always been the most reliable. They don't waste as much money on media coverage as other providers but offer a much better service. There's no connection charge on residential accounts and they even provide...

Pipex, Is it really one of the better ISPs? I have been a Pipex customer for a year or so now and don’t agree with all the praise that this ISP is getting. I do agree that compared to most other Internet Service Providers it wins hands down for certain aspects like: • No charges for it’s...

I actually joined Pipex, not from choice but acquisition of what I was a member, Homecall (Cauldwell Communications). Homecall greatest feature was broadband (uncapped) with free calls and relatively cheap international calls. Customer service was reasonable but it was a shock when Pipex took...

What a minefield choosing a broadband supplier seems to be these days. There are literally hundreds of offers out there. So the main question is, who the heck should you choose to take your money from you then? Well, when I wanted to loose the dreaded two hour cut off on the Freeserve anytime...

When I first heard that Pipex were offering a much cheaper price for ADSL than big companies such as BTopenworld or Freeserve, I was extremely shocked as I had known them since 1996 when I was looking for my first ISP. I was straight away willing to sign up for their ADSL service as I knew that...

I heard about pipex a while ago. They came across me as a company that wants lots of users, and they put up a unreliable service. So when i saw them, i looked up reviews/ratings on them and they turned out to have some pretty excellent ratings. So i decided to go ahead and order pipex adsl self...

I've been with Pipex for almost 1 year & a 1/2 now (for the sum of £23.44 p/month, Inc VAT) and am very pleased with them so far. In the latter part of 2002 they suffered quite a lot of network outages, that have not helped their credibility. Since this though they have rarely had any of these...
