      ISP Pipex
      Speed 2mb (some times)
      Cost 24.99
      Sky package MAX
      Speed 7.5+
      Quality Customer service cr~p same as Pipex, reliability so far not so good, Cost is its only saving grace so far, time will tell if I have them for breach of contract.

      ISP Be Unlimited
      Speed 16mb (some times)
      Cost 24.00
      Sky package Connect @ 5
      Speed 7.5
      Quality Customer Service : Did not dispatch router in time (activated early) so no web for 5 days... Plus it looks like my torrenting days are over.

      But its good for a fiver !

      ISP - Clara Net
      Speed - 2mb
      Monthly Cost - 39
      Sky Package - Max
      Speed - 12.5mb
      QOS - Too early to say yet - my connection dropped right in the middle of a high scoring BF2 game last night so not too impressed yet. It's possible I may be able to improve things.

      Sky Package - Max
