      Hi Hi,

      Another F2s user moving here. Asked for my MAC on thursday and completed the email they send out imeadiately, so hopefully should get it today.

      Must admit I do have some trepidation as I have always had good service from F2s ( In respect of no downtime and constant fast speeds ). Seem to be in a minority there !

      But going to give this a shot for 8 days ( Incidentally they should make this cooling off period longer if they are stating it takes up to 10 days to get the best synch rate ), and iff the service turns out to be pants will cancel.

      Also wary of the fact that everyone upon everyone seems to be signing up. As I will be locked in for a year the possibility of suffering severe degredation in the future would seem to be possible - Anyone else have any thoughts on this ?

      I'm the same.. I've had no problems with F2S. But the chance of a higher speed at a lower cost is too tempting!

      Welcome to the site Duke748

      Yes a lot of people are in the same boat have a good and reliable service and will be now acting as guinea pigs for a totally new ISP to my mind its well worth the risk

      At the end of the day a year at 10 a month even if you only stick it for 6 months its going to cost peanuts to cancel and you would have saved a hell of a lot in my case I will be saving 25 a month with Zen.

      Good luck with your order.

      yeah I'm (still) F2S and will be activated now around the 7th according to Sky. Though I did get an email from F2S saying their service will cease on the 12th...?

      Either way, I'll be going from synching at around 3.5-4Mb but only getting sub 2mb downloads, to around 7mb ish with SKY, also for less s too.

      Yep I have the same thing activation on the 7th and MAX Adsl to cease on the 12th and I must say I am really looking forward to it but not so much download speed since MAX Adsl maxes out my line I am guessing LLU will as well but the much faster upload speed
