We're currently paying £25 a month with Telewest Blueyonder. Does anyone know of anything cheaper which doesn't require a BT line?

Anyone??? Please!

centrepoint is very very cheap. I think from 15 lb. I pay 20 lb for 1 MB i think
go to (if not, then google it)

I believe you can use aol with telewest, but have heard they are crap. Not sure of prices. We have the cheaper version of blueyonder. £17.99 a month and am pleased with it.

You can use AOL with telewest but only dial up. Tesco are cheap but are currently only available to BT customers. They will be offering it to others soon though. I think they cost £19.99 a month for broadband

Wanadoo packages start at £17.99. We have been using it for 5mnths and are pretty pleased with it.

think there is a lot of leeway for bargaining. we've been with BT broadband for 2 yrs paying £27.99 per month for 512mb connection.

I saw that TalkTalk who do our phone line were offering a 1Gig connection for about £20, so I called BT and said i wanted to cancel with them.

After being transferred several times, BT offered me what we already have for £20 per month. I said why would i do that when I can have atwice as fast connection for the same money from talktalk, so they offered me £18 a month, and finally £13 a month. Which I accepted.

So in the space of about 10 minutes I had saved myself £15 a month. Well worth ringing around to get different offers anf then playing them off against each other.

Thanks everyone. I have just been on the phone to Telewest and downgraded our 1MB (£25) service to 256KB (£18). Have to say I'm not noticing a difference, and it's a saving of £7 a month!

I have the £25 Telewest service and think it's pretty good and reliable, although the customer service is crap. But I have heard BT is rubbish technically and the connection process is a nightmare....
