Just ordered BT broardband for my home PC. It will be a 512K connection, although I did have the option to go for 1Meg, but for an extra £11/month. Not sure I (or my step kids) would be using it enough to warrant that.
Its due to be delivered and installed on 28th of June this month, between 8am and 5pm. Now theres an accurate time! Fortunately I think someone will be home, else I will have to run out of the office when they do arrive (I live 1 mile of 1.6 km from where I work).
So this means I will be able to play CS at home as well, and really annoy the girlfiend. Not that I care much at the moment.
For David Wullf if your reading (like heck he is), I had to go with BT, as they are the only supplier of broardband in my area, and getting stuffed by a 56K connection at home was making me even mnore depressed than I am already. If I tip over the edge, it could be bad for my life expectancy. Mind you, if BT turn out to be as bad as your expeirences, it could be the nail in my coffin!
