Cons12 month contract, 2 GB bandwidth cap

Are you…? Tired of dropped connections? Sick of waiting ‘months’ for web pages to load? Had enough of the ‘will it, won’t it connect’ while dialling up? Like to use the phone and surf at the same time? You know what I’m talking about. Tight Git… I’ve been on the verge of ordering some form of...

Not for me

ProFast - when it is working

Cons12 month contract, broken promises, no service

We chose Wanadoo Broadband (previously Freeserve) as when we connected in October ’03, the price of £27.99 was one of the cheapest around and we were already using Freeserve’s Dial-Up service. We were connected within a couple of weeks and had no problems with the service until we moved home and...

“Wanadoo Broadband?”

ProEasy to set up, cheap, works great

Cons2 GB download limit, Filters may pose you a proble...

About two weeks ago, I finally decided that it was time to move on to broadband putting an end to my existing dial-up contract with BT and enagaging the services of Wanadoo (formerly Freeserve). A change for the better? Without doubt. I came across Wanadoo having picked up a free CD at my local...

“Do what you Wanadoo”

published 29/06/2004

ProFree modem, Value for money, Competitive package

ConsBandwidth capping, Punitive charges

EDIT (03 September 2005): Despite being happy with the service, I have now left Wanadoo for another provider. This was exclusively due to (and with some regret) cost considerations. ----- Writing this is one of my first acts on my brand spanking new Wanadoo 512Kbps ADSL broadband connection...

“Broadband just got better”

published 13/10/2004

ProFast, quick, speedy..../oh and they're not slow

Cons12 month contract - but that seems standard now

I have access to the internet at work and use it fiarly infrequently at home so have put off switching to broadband. Then I noticed Wanadoo had improved their offers, plus the my current service from Onetel seemed to be getting a lot slower, and a little light bulb went off and said, what a good...

“I "WANADOO" IT”

published 23/04/2004

ProRELIABLE SERVICE.

ConsA LITTLE EXPENSIVE.

The purpose of this review is to help establish the reputation of Wanadoo in the U.K. When I started on the Internet four years ago, I was connected through Wanadoo, and although the name is new in the U.K., it is an old and established Internet Service Provider in France, run by France Telecom...

Once upon a time there was a woman who had a good quality internet connection. She then moved and opted for Freeserve "Anytime" package. After a few months of difficulties and then an even shorter amount of time with a good quality service it all went downhill. Not even its new incarnation as...

Propopular, easy to set up

Conseasy to upset customers, terrible customer service

This is a really weird opinion to write. I am writing as someone who, very recently, broke up a longstanding relationship. It was acrimonious and I didn't want to have to, but I did it, because I knew that in the long run I would be better off. Let me take you back... In 1998 I joined the...

ProGreat Anytime service at only £14.99 per month

ConsSome of the Broadband charges are ridiculous

I got my first ever computer in January 2004 and I decided to choose Freeserve now Wanadoo as my ISP. Wanadoo isn't bad at all because you get an e-mail address and a top ISP to boot. It's hard to believe but Wanadoo Webmail is better than the No.1 e-mail provider MSN Hotmail and here's why. I'm...

Proquite reasonably priced

Consill tell you below!

I picked up a Freeserve (previous name for Wanadoo) CD a few years ago. Installed and registered for the Freeserve Anytime package. This meant I payed £14.99 a month for unlimited internet use.(not broadband just standard modem) I stuck with this for 1 year, then brought my own house last year...

ProValue for money, fast connection, very reliable.

ConsNone I can think of!

I am mainly writing this review to give my opinion on Wanadoo or also know as Freeserve. Just for you who don't know, Wanadoo is an ISP with good value dial-up and broadband connections. They have also been established quite a while and have plenty of experience. My own personal experience with...

ProWell.............um...............

ConsBad Customer Services/Technical etc

Where can you start when talking about Wanadoo?? As it is my current ISP, I think it's about time that I spoke my mind! Since having Wanadoo Broadband installed in May 2004, we have had nothing but problems. Constant Line Dropping, Scripting Errors within the Speedtouch/Wandoo software and now...

ProFast, easy. no connection problems

ConsDownload limits

I was sick and tired of the whole dial up thing and decided to go broadband. I had subscribed to BT at my last address so went with them again - bad mistake. They sent me a disk with a virus on it and this led to three months of sheer agony which ended with a reinstall of windows and the loss of...
