i cannot get cable but i can switch to a proper isp.

Not really time to leave, a good time to reappraise the current ISP market and see what;s out there.

Don't forget you would not see anything in the forums of most ISP's, for the simple reason they do not have them.

yup its time to go any isp who can bring in a SUP via the back door will not get my money. up untill this i have been happy with F9 and told alot of ppl about how good they were, not now now i have to look over my shoulder when downloading is it peek is it not no tools to help i have never downloaded 100gb never will but i have downloaded 30gb+ when i am at my pc and thats "peek" time i dont want to have to keep my pc on all night just to help F9( save money on more bt pipes). so i have got my MAC code and placed my order with eclipse http://www.eclipse.net.uk/index.cfm?id=bbresidentialservices it costs more that F9 and not as much web space but it was never about the cost and i dont need the webspace but i do like

I still don't understand why f9 don't consider offering a higher cost package with no traffic shaping applied.... it's clear that most medium heavy users would be happy to pay a higher price for the bandwidth they use.... it's not always about the money.

when i joined F9 i was happy to pay £39.99 for a top end/no cap isp now if they said to me ok u can have it all back for £39.99 i would have to say NO they have %&u*ed me and every one over to bad for us to stay and i say to all of you die hard F9 fans that they will keep doing wot they want un till it hurts there ££££££ you may be ok for now small downloads only use it for email but as VoIP and TVoIP start to get bigger then they will need more and more B/W and they have showen that they will not spend there £ on more bt pipes so were will this B/W come from? from you thats were. it is funny that all this started the same time as plustalk :shock: so if you think that because you are a small user now that 30GB pick and 100GB total is somewere you will never go that every thing will be good for you just remamber that you and i never sined up for SUP/CAP and who is a light user of today may well be the hevy user of tomorrow Cry

what is broadband?
i am now downloading from easynews at 12 kps - that's dial up so why am i paying 24.99GBP for a broadband service that I don't get?
emailed f9 and they sent a rather long reply containing links to bt websites where i could do speed tests. no mention of SUP. i only get that from discussion groups. there are those on here that think this is an okay service.,
apart from surfing and email I download 100mg (not gb) from easynews each week. surely that does not make me a heavy user and yet I only get 12-16 kps.
this just does not sit right.
