erm... just think of it as t-mobile!! and if you know anyone on t-mobile, or if u have a t-mob handset already. you will know what to expect.

I don't use mobile broadband as a seperate product, eg with them usb dongles. But for all the operators Orange Voda, Tmobs and O2. Mobile broadband is just there echanced 3g service. 3.5g HSDPA and HSUPA and UMTS which your average updated to date mobile phone uses to surf the internet as it currently stands.

Virgins fibre optic broadband internet and landline, are still there direct supply product.

i'm sure i read somewhere, it's subject to fair use!? Never heard of any caps on downloads and I'm a heavy user still.

But not taking the piss in that respect.

caps?

never knew of this

think im on the 16 mb or whatever

speed is bless, doesnt d/c and i download heavily at times, upload is decent aswell.

/ my mum has a mobile with them, but obviously shes got some £10/m contract so i couldnt ask her about the service.

there are no caps. I just checked there website and it's stated there. But is subject to lag a bit during peak times with local Internet exchange at the end of ur average road.

but i've had no probs.

ok but it doesn't state any caps on there XXL package. so technically they still get away with that statement. (which is on there on main front page for broadband service.)

I use the XL package. still. And dont notice anything.
