Non-contract broadband with instantish activation?

Discussion in 'Broadband' started by Fred Finisterre, Mar 16, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    I'll be staying in ahouse with a BT line for a bit soon. The house has never
    had broadband activated. If I wish to use broadband while I'm there....

    a) Who can I use where I don't have to sign up for a year? Probably just
    need 3 months.

    b) How quickly can they activate it?

    Thanks,

    Fred.

    Many will be happy - Eclipse, Zen, take your pick of www.ADSLguide.org
    but remember some charge the basic 40 +VAT activation fee and others
    add something on top for their admin. If you use the Advanced Search
    (Service Providers List, then Advanced) you can put in the 3 months
    for mininimum contract, but I'd suggest you then force a sort on
    one of the other fields (installation cost, perhaps) because it
    will generate several pages of results
    Most quote 5 to 10 working days. If money is no object / speed is
    most important, AAISP (www.aa.nu) have a pretty good record.

  3. Hi Fred

    We do a minimum 3 month contract, which should suit you, with free
    activation and free online backup software.

    Activation is normally within around 5 days at present.

    Kind Regards

    Steve

    Given "free activation" you could do with having the cancellation
    terms clearly shown on your website, because the closest guess I
    can make to what you charge is based on the offering of a setup
    being done free and described as "worth 50+VAT".

  6. Our ADSL services have a 1 month minimum term. The connection price is
    £45+VAT and we can usually activate a line is 1 week or so.

    Hi, our website states:

    "No 12 month contract (minimum term just 3 months)"
