    What isp?!

    After managing to campaign for broadband where I live, we are finally going to get ADSL activated on the 18th of Feb!

    I'm looking for a decent isp and I'm more tempted to go with a 1meg line than anything else....


    The tossup is between:-
    • Nildram
    • Eclipse
    • Zen


    Anyone got any suggestions or recommendations for a good ADSL isp?

    Pipex is only around £23 a month and I've heard nothing but praise about the reliability of the service.

    lol joking aside, thanks for you suggestion. I would go with them but they wont even give their employees a discount. This is why I'm avoiding them on principal

    I both pity and despise you at the same time.

    We have Eclipse and have had no problems with it.

    And it is the fastest
    apparently.
    Off a good server, speeds of 60KB a sec are usual.

    And it is a good price.

    Zen for me - Only snag is you can't do reverse DNS. Static IP as standard and SMTP is allowed.

    Another bonus is you are only on 1 month contracts

    Could you not get a 3rd part to setup the Reverse DNS?

    there are things that we know we know, things that we know we don't know and things that we don't know we don't know!

    I've used Plusnet for 2 years and they are absolutely fanatastic.
    One of the fastest Broadbands out there;
    Great customer support
    and cheap to £21.99 per month.

    I've heard that Nildram is the best, but I can't fault PLUSNET

    Exactly why are static ip's good again ?
    Having the same ip just makes it easy for repeated attacks..
