    "BT Yahoo Broadband"

    Just got an email from BT saying they are "upgrading" their BT service "at no extra cost!"

    Is it just me or do you reckon the are going to doing something similar to AOL?
    "As part of your upgrade to the BT Yahoo! Broadband service, you will be provided with an improved custom-built browser."
    Surely if they do this they are going to loose a lot of customers who don't like "custom browsers"?!

    I first subscribed to them ages ago, so I am still paying more than i should be for it, so i am going to change ISP anyways.

    Just about to look on adslguide.org.uk to find a new ISP, but do guys have any recommendations? Someone suggested ZEN to me, anyone used them?

    Pipex is about the cheapest (less than £24 a month) and the service is good too.

    theres a solution to that :-)

    use another DNS server !

    always a good idea to have backup dns from, another isp's dns server ( like demon, bt etc. )
