Changing Broadband Provider

Am getting weary of BT for a number of reasons, would like to ask other forum members which co. they use/would advise?
Thank you.

If you tell them you are leaving they might drop the price...but perhaps it is the quality of their service that is the problem. I'm with BT and no complaints at present. Recently got one of their new wireless hubs (Hub4) and all is working well.

Having been with Sky for a number of years
I stayed with them as a Sky Sports Subscriber,
but switched my Calls and Broadband package
to Talk Talk two years ago.

I have never had a problem with Talk Talk.

I have high speed Fibre Optic Broadband, 100 minutes
free calls to Mobiles. Unlimited Local and National calls
24/7.......all for £19:50 a month, plus £14:95 line rental.

Standard Broadband is £5:00 a month less.

I have put the figures in for comparison.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for that folks.
The face of my e mail had changed, I now get so much spam into my e mail page, not the spam page, and for things I wasn't even looking at,
If you send me a photo, I now have a black background, whereas before I could just print it off, can't even get into my own digital photos to send as e mail now either.
Now they are changing it again! When I finally got a person I could understand, (after I wrote a letter, and posted, not an email, that was disregarded, not a call, I couldn't understand, plus they talked down to/over me),
and also asked why I pay so much more than these ads I see, they offered me a reduction of £6 per month, I told them not to bother. Hope to query the likes of UTV and the PO, plus my IT consultant will have a look, (my niece),
just thought it would be a good idea to get an opinion poll, so thanks again folks.
