I posted a little while ago that I was having problems with my internet connection Well I've had enough and today I signed up with Virgin. I don't antisipate any problems with the connection but everytime I have changed ISP I have had. I should be connected between 5-7 days so, if I am not around, it's probably that I am having problems

Got to agree Blueyonder (now Virgin) has worked fine for me for about 5 years.

We have issues with NTL (now also Virgin) at work though - it's only our fall back, but it's not that good.

Thanks Guys, nice to hear that I have made the right choice.

It's quite amazing how, when you say that your not happy, they (Homecall now Pipex) suddenly are able to provide up to 8mb speed to existing customers, when prior to this they couldn't pathetic, there is no way I would stay with them after that bo**ocks.

Virgin is cheaper as well as being able to provide up to 8mb speed (I know that means that I may not get 8mb, but 1mb is better than 0.5mb). Plus my daughter will now be able to get on the internet without me giving her grief
