      Everything in Britain is overpriced, 40 quid for broadband is a bit excessive. The thing is most of the major company broadband offers are capped downloads with 2gb a month limit or wotever. What decent reliable UK companies are there that offer 1mb 2mb for cheap??

          My Canadian 3mbit down/300kbit up just sat down in the corner and began to cry because it felt so ashamed after seeing that...

            UKOnline has just started selling 8Mb/512k @ £40 actually.. It's only avail on 200 odd exchanges tho.

            So its not all bad for broadband britian. Expect faster speeds happening this year, since about 1 million people are getting broadband in the UK every 3 months! Thats pretty decent uptake.

              Supanet offer "unlimited" 1MB/s down 256Kb/s up for £23.99, but I can't recommend them right now, they're having right problems. Hence my earlier comments to Pyro, seems we're both being lucky at the moment. Many users are saying that the heavy users are actually getting capped/choked. Before Christmas I couldn't get a decent ping to any servers but now it's quite normal and downloads are good too. But I do know of others who aren't so fortunate.

                I can recommend Zen

                They do uncapped 1 and 2 Mbit connections, but you would be paying between £30 and £40 a month.

                  I pay $60NZD a month for 2mbit down, 192k up ADSL, and another $40 a month on top of that for the line rental. And my connection has a 10 gig cap. I ****ing hate NZ broadband. The only good thing about our connection is Jetstream Games. We've got a certain username and password that we use to connect to the "realm" and once we're on we can only access jetstreamgames and their gaming servers, but we get 8mbits download. Plus it doesn't count against your cap. I go on every time I play UT2004 online, or need to download a mod (all of Beyondunreal is mirrored on the Jetstreamgames servers! W00t!)

                        wouldnt that 20mbit download etc be detrimental to a game because youd be running the game so ******* fast everyone else would be laggy compared and your shots would miss?

                              Anyone know when NTL are upgrading the speeds to 1,2 and 3 megabit?

                              All i know is that you have to pay a £25 admin fee to get it
                              Yep and ****** that, I'm sticking with my uncapped ntl 750k, rather than being capped and paying for the privilege :down:
