Hi Just , great topic and thanks for the pm , I will not be online much over the next few weeks , (busy ) :evil2:,

anyone in the UK got any experiance of Virgin media (cable ) or Be there adsl ,?

all I need is around 2mbps , realiable, and cheap , without a cap on download ,

( for Joost  :wink2: ) and can anybody tell me if I need a UK Tv licence to use joost ?

anyway I may be moving to *Highcliffe on sea,  Dorset later this year , so I am not changing things at the moment , 

* next door to the local exchange * :lol:, my first Broadband was with Pipex 125 Kbps  :lol:

well it sure beat 56K dial up and worked out cheaper  than paying by the minute ,  :evil2:

roco i have virgin

this is the 2nd time i have cable always from ntl maybe 3 years ago 1st

then i moved and the last year again with them

i have been generally happy with them compared to adsl from plus.net which was capped

about tv license no you dont need tv license to watch joost or bbc news online or any online tv

as long as u dont buy a tv tuner card for ur pc which then u need a license

i am moving to London as u know and i will be getting be* i have done some research and them seem to be good

but if u only need 2mb and unlimited i think virgin u would be better off

Thanks just for the TV lic. info , Yeah I am a bit woried about TV cards , I have a computer in for reload and it has a tv card fitted,  not my computer but on my premiss's ,

so I had better remove the card , and reinstall it on return ,

LOL I am looking at Be with a 4Gb cap, more than enough for me , cable with Virgin sounds good , but I don't fancy the hassel of having the garden dug up for the cable connection , 

Pipex is OK and has been very reliable , apart for their billing , I note they are now charging me

Will do just , but it wont be untill September I am under a contract with Pipex till then ,  :evil2:

I am hoping to learn  from your "Be" experiance  :smile2:

BTW, my neighbour had NTL/Virgin ,  for phone and TV , they burried the cable only 3 inches under the ground , he is  a keen gardener and put his spade  through the cable  :lol:,

he had to pay for the repair, and was without phone or tv for weeks,  :evil2:

Be - Unlimited is a True ADSL2+ ISP.

They offer speeds of UPTO 24Mb/s, However, Sky Broadband owned by the BSkyB company, Who took over Easynet, a big player in the LLU field, Also offer ADSL2+ but at a limited 16Mb/s.

@-Just, tbh, Be isnt anything fancy, I used to be with them before we moved, and we get the same speed as we did with them now, but for
