      Recommendations of and ISP to migrate to??

      SP: Recommendations of AN ISP to migrate to??

      Hi all,

      After great frustration of having no internet service for over 4 weeks I am looking into other ISPs to migrate from my Sky Max package...

      Any recommended ones with an almost similar price? I was with BT for about 5 years but they were charging about 26.99 for a 2MB line with 40GB cap per month.

      I'm not too fussed about the speed- i think my line can only hand 4MB max anyway.

      UK Online with their 2MB line with no cap @ 14.99 seems the nearest i could find.

      Thanks.

      Let me just inform you,

      Sky , UK Online are the same! Run run by the same company!

      As UKOnline was a partner with Easynet, Since BSkyB brought it, Sky own all of them, But they Brand UKonline Separately!

      @Fiberoptic

      Yes i was aware of this, but I haven't heard of any known problems with UK Online (saying as he waits for people to reply back telling him otherwise!).

      The previous company I used to work for had a UK Online leased line I believe- perhaps a different kettle of fish altogether though!

      Seen as this is now all BSkyB I dont really think there would be a change in speeds as it goes straight back to the same LLU?
      They might not even place a cease on the line, They will just change the billing stuff!

      Changing to UK-Online with result in a cease and re-provide as will going to any other ISP, the only ISP that I am aware of that will accept a MAC is Zen Internet and thats a little fuzzy as I am not sure if its just to there LLU exchanges or there whole network?

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      @Wheelie, Seeing as it is provided from the same LLU why would they put a cease on the line?
      Wouldnt they just change who bills it?

      Nope ask anyone who has changed from UK-Online to SkyBB all had to cease and re-provide.

      They are all owned by Sky but are 2 different ISP's and as such they act the same as all the others, MAC's work well moving from IPStream to IPStream but from LLU to LLU or IPStream no such luck, there have been the odd post however that have claimed that the ISP's they have moved to have accepted the MAC though in the end to the best of my knowledge the codes ended up being rejected.
