i keep getting people from talk talk n plusnet chattin crap about they can offer like £4 a month broadband, but BE is the best ive been with n id rather pay that premuim for a good service.

No direct debit? :blink:

<h2 id="question">How can I make payments?

You can pay us several ways, we're good like that :)

You can pay online via your member centre. You'll need to use your original login details (if you're not already logged in) and go to www.bethere.co.uk - the billing route is fairly straight forward. Click on your bill to make a manual payment.

Alternatively we'll just take money monthly from you via your chosen route of Direct Debit or Credit/Debit card. We don't do paper invoices so you'll just get an email with the details each month before we take payment.

If you are having any issues with this then login to your member centre, click on a bill and there's a 'livechat' link which will let you have a chat with one of our lovely billing agents.

Of course it's relavent.

They are easy for ISPs to throttle, a lot in this country do and that as well many other reasons renders them obsolete.

I've got O2 which is pretty sick. I thought they were throttling me for a while, turns out there's a power reduction setting on the router that limits wireless speeds on all devices

just took a shot in the dark as these things are never where I am

then this

TalkTalk Fibre Optic broadband will be available on your line in October 2011.

Your estimated Fibre Optic line speed will be 35.8 Meg download speed and 2 Meg upload.

Compare that to your current download speed of 5.3 Meg.

will cost like 16.99

only problem is I think they'll make me take their line rental when I already have plans to use a diff service

and the 40GB limit

ill phone and check either way cos Im f*ckin excited

God these sales guys are pushy

but Be along with the BT line rental is just costing me more than Id like to pay for

I hope talk talk isnt as sh*t as I think it is because I cant deal with downtime, never had a single problem with Be in 12 months
