Anyone able to suggest a good broadband pacage with a free/cheap router?

  1. Hi,
    i`m asking for a friend - I`m very happy with the service I get from NDO.
    My friend wants broadband without paying anything up front, and she wants a
    router - wireless would be ideal, but wires are acceptable if she has to
    have them.

    I`ve tried explaining that sometimes the best deals aren`t the cheapest, but
    she`s skint and can`t afford to pay anything out up front, but can afford
    slightly higher monthly payments if needed.

    Anyone got any good companies to reccomend?

    Thanks for your help.

    Virgin and Onetel both offer free activation

    Virgin have a monthly contract and charge £10 for a USB modem.

    Onetel offer the USB modem for free but the contract is for 12 months.

    If your friend wants a router instead - then she is much better off getting
    a router seperately.

    The only ISP that I know of which "bundles" a router is
    http://www.router-aid.co.uk/ - but I have no experience of them and given
    their charges, it would be alot cheaper using someone else

    Nobody bundles a "free" wireless router..

    Regards
    Sunil

    I'm currently on ISDN dial-up with NDO, generally the service is reasonably
    good. We're moving to broadband next year some time. What NDO package are
    you on? I was a bit confused by the options available on their website!

    Cheers

  4. I`m on a package that costs about £28 a month. That covers the cost of the
    router etc. Apart from that I`m not sure what package it is :)

    But I`ve been very happy with the service. Fast downloads constantly, and a
    nice secure reliable connection - had a problem to start with losing the
    connection, but that turned out to be a faulty filter. Other than that I`m
    made up with them.

    And do you use email through them? That was one of the things I was confused
    about!
