    Demon have launched a new 512K ADSL service for £19.99 (inc VAT) which comes
    with no download restrictions.

    There is no activation/connection fee and it comes with a free USB modem.

    More details at http://www.demon.net/adsl/consumer.html

    allocation, interesting...

  3. I can live with that to save a fiver a month (AND get another free
    modem...?)
    Anyone know how I _downgrade_ to 'demon home 500' from my existing demon
    adsl account! (I've just run my year with demon express solo)

    Yes, I believe so.

    The difference to their existing £24.99 product appear to be that the new
    cheaper £19.99 one offers:

    - dynamic IP address as opposed to static IP
    - no web space
    - no eFax facility.

    Regards

    http://www.demon.net/adsl/expresspackages/home500-sb.html says no news
    server access, no web space, 24/7 support on a 10p/minute 0871 number
    and, from elsewhere on the site, no dialup account or fax to mail. All a
    but un-Demon really - but these things do cut costs.

    If you want a "no frills" package and don't mind a 12 month minimum term
    (for which you get free installation, a free Speedtouch 300 and two free
    microfilters), it may be a good deal.

    I, personally, could have done without the "free modem". None of the other
    restrictions would worry me - except for the lack of news which probably rules
    it out for me!!!

    Flog that on Ebay, I sold a 330 for 18 quid last week.
    individual.net is your friend :) Unless of course 'no news' means that port 119 is closed ?

    'Scuse the dull kid at the back of the class catching up here, but..

    If you're not planning to do virtual networking with your computer, and you
    don't want to host your own website from home (ie you just want BB for
    faster email and browsing) is there any advantage to having static IP over
    dynamic? And in fact, isn't dynamic safer because hackers have a moving
    target if they want to get your stuff?

    As I understand it, Voice over IP telephones are better with a fixed IP, as the
    fixed IP address can then be used as part of you incoming telephone number.

    Not really an inuitive website is it - difficult to find any info on
    their basic broadband service.

    I would have guessed that it just means you can't access
    news.demon.co.uk..... surely?

    Well, it wouldn't be the first ISP to block some ports on the basis
    an account was cheaper as it had restrictions (eg Claranet having a
    block on IRC, on their 'Freetime Unlimited' account, or Plus.Net on
    Home Surf ADSL having a block on peer-to-perr and binaries groups or
    remote news servers carrying binaries)

  20. Some surprise expressed at this on demon.service.

    Why do you think there's no news?

    Admittedly it doesn't say there IS - but then it doesn't say that for
    Demon Express Solo, which I'm using here :)
