UPDATE 19.04.03 When I started my relationship with Telewest 2½ years ago, it was not a happy time. They were unable to bill me correctly, and their billing system was so ridiculous and incomprehensible that even THEY didn't understand it. I was downright livid with them for months and months...

“Just about worth the wait”

published 25/09/2001

ProQuick as anything, fantastic for games

Consyou are restricted by the sites you visit

Its been a long long road for me to get the kind of connection that really makes the internet a fun place to be, trogging through high intensity graphical web pages with a 56k modem as we all know is just no fun at all. Having waited and waited for BT to get there act together i had to turn to...

“Super Fast Internet”

published 04/09/2001

ProFAST!!

ConsHigh cost of setting it up

After all the hype, all the advertising and adverts on TV I decided it was time to try out the BlueYonder High Speed Internet. It is broadband internet, permanently on, with incredible download speeds of 512Kb/s Compare that with a typical modem of 56.6Kb/s and you begin to see the picture. I've...

ProFast internet, good servuice and good price

ConsEmail tempramental

The choice of Telewest as our provider of television, internet and telephone was bourn purely out of price. Being a student house we wanted to get as much as possible for as little as possible – Telewest offered this. What we pay: £60 a month for cable television with the Sky Sports and Sky...

UPDATED to take account of 4 years' experience as at October 2006. From February 2007, we're all now called Virgin Media, whether we were with Telewest OR NTL. This is my third and hopefully last opinion on an ISP unless I move to an area without cable TV. I'm also mindful of the merger between...

Cable broadband in a nutshell - it's quick, particularly when dealing with large file downloads. On regular pages, you still have the time it takes for the browser to render a page etc. But when you can download a 50MB file in minutes, you know things have improved! It's also always on. Allegedly...

“Broadly speaking, Great.”

published 24/05/2002

ProSpeed, speed and more speed

ConsSupport lacks a little

After becoming a complete Internet addict over the past few years, it seemed only natural to switch to broadband when it became available in my area, so I did. As BT are still getting their act together, the only other option was Telewest' Blueyonder Broadband. PRICE There are two scales of...

“broadband is here”

published 24/05/2002

ProIt's broadband?

ConsNot always on

Yup...sure is. Some people have a bad opinion of broadband. Well, you go back to a 56k and tell how long u can last :) Getting Megabytes of info & downloads in minutes rather than hours. I have not done an overnite download since I upgraded from 56k. The biggest download I have made is about a...

ProAlways on (supposedly), fast download times

ConsLots of service issues.

***UPDATE AT BOTTOM**** Having used telewest (now called blueyonder) as our telephone provider since we moved into this house 6 odd years ago, it was natural to use them for internet access (dial up) when we first got a computer. After about a year of using dial up Telewest did an offer of free...

ProSpeed, Reliability, Support, The Works!

ConsUpload Speed

I've been with Telewest Broadband for about 5+ years now, and can say that these guys are by far the best and only ISP I have ever used in my life. Now, I'm not very old, but I've worked for ISP's and understand a lot about the infrastructure and network topologys. With your Telewest Broadband...

ProFast Reliable Internet Connection Hardly Goes Down

ConsNone Really

The 3 main internet companies have been fighting for the title of the UK’s fastest and most used internet connection and Blueyonder always came up on top because they always developing their connection to new speeds that’s why they have earned the UK’s Number 1 service provider...

ConsStill in its early days may be teething problems!

The funny thing is I only ever heard about Blueyonder through my nephew Stuart. He told me about how fast the connection times were and that he had never come across another like it! Stuart I should inform you is very laid back and for him to rave about anything means that it must be bloody good...

ProCheaper than most

Consohhh read on .....

A clever person once told me " If it seems to good to be true, it usually is" but me being me I have to learn the hard way. If you see the advertisements in your local paper for Telewest offering you the latest discount be on your guard. We decided that we needed a house phone due to having a...

ProIts fast need I say more

ConsPrice and offline with storms

As Whitney Houston once sang, ‘I have nothing, nothing, nothing… if I don’t have you…’ Well, this is how I feel about Blueyonder. Yes, if I could, I’d marry it (Sorry Dan ). Blueyonder to me is almost as important , actually it is more important than my Dyson vacuum. I’d go as far to say that if...
