    Hi,

    I'm looking at getting telewests 750k broadband, when signing up they have an option to purchase a Gaming pack this contains 12mon sub to xbox live, and the other usual starter kit stuff.

    But they charge you an extra £5 per month!!! Anyone know what this £5 is for?? As far as I can see you have paid for your broadband an your xbox live for the year.

    Are they taking advantage of people who don't know what they are paying for??

    You get a Live Kit, free game and modem with two ports so that you don't have to buy a router.

    Not that bad really for £60 for 12 months, you could most probably cancel the gaming service after that and they won't take the modem back.

    A decent router will usually cost you around 60 quid anyway.

    I used telewest without a router.

    All you have to do is make sure your pc is off, unplug the modems power, unplug the cable, replace with xbox ethernet cable, plug back in the power and away you go.

    Do the reverse to get your pc online again.

    That can be a real pain if you want both on at the same time, it means you can't do things like downloading and play online while you wait.
