I think that's the same with me! the charge monthly is 14.99 for 4gb so thats not too bad, and it does say  speeds UP TO 8mb which I think is the "get out of everything" clause! my isp is not directly BT tho.
Generally I'm not too unhappy, as long as the darn thing stays connected, sometimes it just drops off ! and then keeps on dropping off! but at the present time all is well so I'm not complaining too much  :-X

Hi Celia

A few questions?

Do you want to stay on dial up?

Do you have the ability to receive Broadband in your area?

Lots more but that's a start.

Re the speed tests - these are for Broadband only. For dial up with the 'normal' 56k modem, you can usually find your speed by hovering your pointer over the modem icon in the Task Bar. I rarely got more than 30 when I was on dial up.

This site gives a fairly good review of most ISPs, if you are definitely considering moving:
