    I am a BT broadband custumer with a 512k asdl connection. However BT do not
    offer an upgrade to 1mb is there anyway that I could terminate the contract
    without haveing to pay the remaining 7 months of the contract due to BT not
    being competative? If i cancel and go to plusnet for example I would save
    over 10 pounds a month and I would be able to get the 1mb line?

    No, you can't cancel your BT Broadband contract for that reason.

    btw BT Broadband have announced they will be offering a 1MB service for
    £38 - launching in a couple of weeks I believe.

    Good question. umm i was alittle dumb! Still I don't know how they can
    justify the prices they chrage though. when other ISP's can supply it (via
    BT) for £10+ cheaper?

    Don't bother, £38 a month for 1Mb is a ripoff, you can save at least £7
    a month by shopping elsewhere....

    Look at an earlier thread in this newsgroup '[UK-Bug] News .. BT to download
    cap ? and ummm BT :eek:)' dated 13/1/04.

    An unenforced 1GB/day download limit on a 1MB adsl line - sounds like a
    truly cr#p deal.

    Yeah I know what do you think I want out! But I would have to pay the
    current 7 months fee's for the current server. That is why the Topic is :
    "Get out of BT BRoadband contract with out paying?"

    Who could possibly need 1gb a day?

  11. I certainly don't need 1GB a day or even 1GB a week, but I do need
    more than 1GB *some* days.

    For example, if a new release of the operating system I use comes out,
    I might well want to download 2-3GB.

    So how about a limit of 10gb a week?
    Sadly the network is crippled by people who download large amounts of files
    every day on the likes of kazaa/edonkey or whatever. So others are
    suffering on the network. The BT satellite system is a good system
    (although file sharers would not agree). You have a limit per week, if you
    go over that limit in one week, you get a lesser speed for the next week.
    If you dont use that limit the following week, you go back to the higher
    speed. That way the bandwidth is spread evenly over those that use the
    system legitimitely.
