    Hi all.

    I know this sort of question comes up a lot, I can see that from
    previous posts, but I would like some clarification just in case I am
    missing something.

    I am currently on Pipex Xtreme 500 - 512k/256k with no caps or limits in
    any way. An excellent service with only a few hours of down time in the
    last 18 months. Currently paying £23.44 per month.

    Is there a better deal than this given that I would download between 1
    and 6Gb per month?

  2. AOL. They have 512k broadband for £17.99/mo (announced today).

    They also don't require you to use the software anymore, so you can just
    set your existing modem or router with the new username and password and
    it should just work (tm).

    You could get that for around £20/m. (eg f2s 5GB = £20) or if your use
    will vary, or be predictable then plus might do you ( 1GB £15 + £1.50 or
    £2 per Gb).
    Those would be 1Mb is you can get it.

    I just started the move to

    1Mb for a pound more that Pipex 512. No migration fees and free modem

    Frankly Rob, things are changing so fast on the ADSL front that I
    wonder if anybody can give you a convincing answer, or save you much
    if anything.
    As somebody has pointed out, PN would (on a Lite account) be costing
    you £16.50 to £24, and I suspect that you'd get cheap or free
    migration (and 1Mbps or 2Mbps is same price)
    However, with everything in flux, and with so little in price, and if
    you are happy, and it ain't broke, why try to fix it?

    Thus spake Rob:
    You could go with a PAYG service. I'm currently upgrading my Nildram
    1000PAYG to 2gO 2Mb for £18p/m with bandwidth beyond 1G costing £3.50 for
    /every/ extra 2G. Some PAYG products cap the extra bandwidth cost to ~15%
    more than the uncapped equivalent, so your bill will never be ridiculously

    You would probably gain the most with a PAYG service that includes 2 & not
    1GB so that most months, you won't pay extra (Nildram take note!)
