I'm on dail up but its NTL so its a freephone number which doesn't show on the phone bill [:)]

You get cut off every two hours but you just reconnect & there's no limit to how many hours you can spend on line.

Since I switched from dial up, which was free with work, to NTL broadband, we spend much longer on the net. Not sure how long as it's unlimited, but we probably average around 1 - 2 hours a day.

It makes such a difference having Broadband. Before this, our surfing experience used to just regularly grind to a halt, but now it's really quite good.

Until yesterday I was on the 1 Mb/s service, but it seemed sensible to downgrade to 600 kb/s and save 10 per month. Since doing this, there is no noticeable difference in surfing speeds. It might well affect downloading files, but we don't download loads of stuff. When we do, the download speeds are only 100 - 150 kb/s anyway, so there must be other bottlenecks.

So I reckon if you surf the net a lot, and 110 hours in a quarter is a fair bit Toma, and can get a Broadband service in your area, it's well worth the outlay. I got free installation mind.

I'm glad somebody finds broadband faster than dial-up. I switched from ntl dial-up to a 112k modem, and if there is a difference, the broadband seem to lock-up much more frequently than the dial-up and certainly isn't faster.

In January i switched from NTL frree dial-up to the lowest BroadBand package (with free install) and managed to save ourselfs over 5 a month and it's brilliant.



But i still spend around 8 to 10 hours a day online often more when i got the night off work (like today).

According to Julie i switched the Computer on at about 10am this morning and i'm still here now [:0][:0] and as i'm off tonight it proberly wont go off till the early hours.

Hi Everyone,
I am on Broadband as well and without a doubt it is faster than a Dial-up Modem. I am on the Internet from the time I get home from Work untill I go to bed which can be as much as 6 hours a night and at the Weekend I am online almost all day. Broadband makes so much difference when you are downloading, It allows you to go for those bigger files that would take a couple of weeks on a 56k Modem. By the way you can check up on how long you have been online. If you have an Icon showing at the bottom right of your screen showing that you are online. If you right click on that Icon and then click on Status and it shows you how long you have been on. If you have no Icon, then click on My Computer and then click on Network or Internet Connections.....Once open right click on the Internet Icon and then Status and that will tell you how long you have been connected.

well btween me & sammy we had to come off bt anytime as we kept going over the 150hrs per month.
so what i done was downgraded it to pay as you go then just use it a few mins per month to keep my email addresses & went onto tesco net anytime at 12-99 month which does not have any time limits weve had it for a month now & no problems

2/3hrs a night & &5/6 hr's sat&sun &1/2 hr before work in the morning .I
I'm also on broadband so no record's before i went to broad at least 70hrs a month that's why i switched to broadband cheaper.
Only pay 25.00 per mth before anything between 35.00& 50.00 + faster connection &no dial up&log on prob's so a great deal all round
