please give me advice on getting internet at home
if not, don't get talktalk, they're horrible cunts.
uhhook it from your meter and hook it to your neighbors meter and leave your oven on for 45 days until the gas man comes round and then ask to borrow his phone and call Virgin Media.
Hopefully you will be once bitten twice shy.
to act out the days internet for you?
*covers mouth with hand to prevent anyone lip reading*
*whispers* ...get some internet at home
*whispers* ...purple monkey dishwasher
looks like someone is trying to give actual advice.

even when i wasnt tethering, so i got well shirty with them. perhaps if i actually tethered, i'd either feel like i was getting my own back OR i would lose that previous moral high ground
it's all about the tethering these days
it's faster than my home internet. It's great.
it was shite, going to just get bwadbaaand
how man MB/s do i really need? is 30MB enough to stream decently?
If there are going to be four of you iPlayering like mad then you do want to go for higher speeds.
went with ee for ours as they gave 10% discount for existing customers and £120 cashback if you go through the cashback site. Basically costs £6 a month between 2 people... not too shabby
nearly got like £100 cashback but then didn't due to indecisiveness on my part
http://explore.ee.co.uk/january-mobile-broadband You can get them on pay as you go.
or ask nicely if you can use it til you get some
and "jobs" so we can live without a home line for a while i reckon and also, talking to strangers is scary
like fuck would I let you use my broadband! :D
and didn't say anything, would've gladly let them use my wifi
but i called them to get an estimate and said they could be there at the weekend, whereas everyone else was talking about weeks so i relented
and the have been many Virgin's fiber optic connections are the ONLY ones the haven't given me any sort of grief. I would have carried over my deal with them for the fourth year if it weren't for the fact I appear to be in the only block of flats in Brighton without cable :(
BT - Legit Awful, twice I've been with them and both times I've had the same issue of inconsistent connection speeds and the upload is so bad that sometimes it take minutes for a request for a webpage to even register.
Orange - Legit Awful
Sky - Eh they were okay
AOL - Lets not go there
for torrenting and whatnot. but i haven't had any beef with them and their service is the best i've had.
was on BE broadband for a long while but had to have a BT line anyway and they are just too awful to deal with.
He looks well shady. ;-)
like, literally, right now.
moving on friday/saturday so quite keen to get it all sorted, trying to do TV and phone and broadband in one go. can't get sky, definitely can get virgin media but getting sky sports on there seems well expensive and it seems you have to get the biggest TV package to get most of the HD channels, so no idea what to get.
whatever you do though, try and get it through quidco or something like that. i got sky last year, got £120 cashback via quidco and a £100 m&s voucher off sky, which covered half the year or so.
I mean, it's nice and all but it's not worth buying a really expensive TV package for.
get the package you want, then whack £10 on top and all of the channels you could get in HD are available in HD. pretty reasonable i think. getting the F1 channel free as part of the HD pack was a nice bonus too, though i don't think you get that now.
Just can't deal with it.
and then, like, have a life and use my time productively and save money
but then, we're talking about 30p a day, what the fuck do i care about 30p a day?
I am currently in the process of cancelling my internet as I never use it for anything really (only general browsing, booking tickets, watching Netflix, Skyping my mates in Australia and playing my music - So not really enough to justify the extra £12.99 a month) But when I called up to cancel the man said that I would have to pay out a total of £35 (+ £5 admin fee) (so £40) in order to do so, I was pretty shocked and had to hang up the phone as I swooned a bit at the prospect of having to pay that high a sum, I am going to get the lady at work to call on my behalf tomorrow. So just a wee warning to help you out there.
Hope this helps :)
surely you're just buying yourself out of the rest of your contract, assuming it hasn't expired yet but will do in approximately 3 months judging by the amount they're asking for?
