    Thanks

    garbage provisioned by NTL. Avoid.

    If you don't believe me, go to adslguide.org.uk and do some research.

    The out-laws' exchange has just been enabled. They use Tesco for their
    daytime dial up and wanted to switch to broadband.

    Tesco told me that they could not have broadband with Tesco because it
    is datastream and BT were not allowing datastream to be enabled at that
    exchange for the near future. Tesco also said that it may be upto a
    year before they are allowed in.

    We decided to go with AOL (I know, but is ok for the out-laws) and it
    was enabled in a few days.

    Still a monopoly??

    I wouldn't wish AOL on anybody - even the outlaws!

    Tesco/NTL lied - the reason the exchange won't have been DataStreamed is
    purely because NTL has not yet chosen to do it yet - nothing to do with BT
    restricitions

    Rgr, may have got the facts slightly confused - but at the end of the
    day Tesco couldn't do it.

    Cheers for the info.

  7. Apart from first couple of days, Tesco has been 100% reliable for me. With
    2 PC's and a xBox online virtually continuesly together, i'm happy.

    Cheap as chips for a 24x7 *unlimited* connection that's faster than my
    old pipex one (of course just my own experience).

    So was I until I started getting speed problems (after a few months of
    good speed). Their helpdesk has been next to useless, and I'll be
    swapping as soon as my contract finishes.
