Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

    Need to change my ISP. Just wondered if anyone has had any rpobs with Tiscali?

    need unlimited download and roughly a 2Mb+ pipe.

    Any reccomendations for a new ISP?



    Anything up to 24Mb

    Also doing phone service as well WEF 4 Jul 06.

    Highly recommended. No probs with them since 2005, despite a few moves!
  3. Very few (if any) ISPs offer truly unlimited download allowance nowadays. Tiscali operate a 'Fair Usage Policy', in common to most other ISPs.

    If you use P2P a great deal, you may find speed restrictions applied to your account.

    Personally I use PlusNet who, whilst they have a Fair Usage Policy, give you almost unlimited downloads in off-peak hours (100GB per month between 0001-1600hrs IIRC).
  4. Could also try Prodigy I've been with them for years, with VERY few problems with service. I do loads of downloading and they aren't remotely bothered about P2P either.

    Have an 8MB line with a 30GB download allowance for £24.99pm. Prior to that, I had a 1MB line with unlimited downloads for £29.99 a month.

    Relative of mine is also on and swears by them - so definitely worth consideration too.
