Re: Want ADSL?-Read on....
I was with cwc / NTL for 6 years, a couple on BB. I just got fed up with them, and moved to adsl in June. It's all been absolutely fine, and I am now with plus net at ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£18.99 pcm (I don't use p2p or binaries), which is so much better than 150k NTL for ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£1 more. I save more than that on call costs. Cable TV was rubbish, and I've got freeview, which is fine, it works and formats my 16:9 tv picture correctly.
I initially tried adsl with Zen, who were great, but 'Plus.Net' is better value. It's nice to be able to change ISP though.
I kept my Linksys BEFSR41 router, and hooked the WAN port to a D-link-300G+ modem. Easy. I honestly have not regreted changing once, and just felt relief at leaving NTL. Shame really, as cable is good in theory, but obviously needs responsible provisioning.
