we've been using ukonline
for our ADSL at home because it was the cheapest when we first signed a 12 month contract (but they had to drop the price a month after we joined).
we started off with a 1Mbps for £14.99, and then after a month, they dropped the price of 2Mbps to £14.99! anyway, the one year contract is up, so i went online to see which number i should call to hassle them about upgrade. turns out that you can get upgraded in 4 steps on their web site. i did this yesterday night and tonight i already notice my connection is up to 2Mbps! awesome!
of course, this is nothing if you think about how 6 years ago i was using 3Mbps cable internet in australia for AUD$70/month, which is around £25/month, and you can get 100Mbps in HK
for the same price.
now it only takes a measly 3 days to download all those DVDs instead of 6! (of course i'm kidding..)
