ISP Ratings

Hi All
Not shuwer where to put this.
Information on ISP's if you are looking for a ISP now or in the future this site may help.  Click here to go to the ISP Ratings and select the ISP from the list that you want further information on.
Note PlusNet is not on the list, may be if you go to Rate your ISP on a PlusNet connection the site may add PlusNet to the list of ISP's

Re: ISP Ratings

I get a monthly reminder from Thinkbroadband to rate my ISP.

Re: ISP Ratings

Just noticed that Metronet is 5th on the list.  They're owned by PN so what are they doing diffeently, or do they have a less demanding customer Undecided Undecided

Re: ISP Ratings

The one piece of information which isn't included as far as I can see is the number of votes and how recent and that could explain a lot

Re: ISP Ratings

The number of votes can be seen by hovering your mouse over each bar. It's 242 for Plusnet.
Selecting Plusnet from "Select ISP for detailed view" displays each comment / vote. The oldest comment re Plusnet is dated 23-01-08

Re: ISP Ratings

On the Thinkbroadband rating they show the level of votes but not the actual number.  They show for example, high, medium or low.

alanf, on the Kitz site just noticed Metronet only had 3 ratings so that possibly answers my earlier question.

Re: ISP Ratings

"DSL ZoneUK" http://www.dslzoneuk.net/isp_ratings.php has similar useful information.
- although the detailed Plusnet product range listed is VERY out of date !.  Maybe someone from Plusnet might like to contact them with current product information ! ?

Re: ISP Ratings

Embarrassed Embarrassed
Metronet - 3 ratings with the latest 2008
Vispa - 1 rating 2009
Mistral - 1 rating 2010
Utility Warehouse - 3 ratings
Entanet - look at the ratings for the last 18 months - it gives a much different picture
In my opinion the ranking is meaningless for 2 reasons
ISP ratings with hardly any votes are unlikely to be representative of the experience of their users
ISP ratings more than 12 months old are not relevant - look at Entanet for a prime example of that. They have gone really rapidly downhill over the last year or so.
