being a bit of a power hungry downloader, i decided it was time to leave BT and venture forth. (by the way had BT for 8 years and they have been excellent in all respects, so no fault of theirs).

got my MAC code, no problems again.

now sign up for BE, well i thought it would be a long drawn out process, but nope 2 pages later its ordered.

ok now to wait for 2-3 weeks, nope not that either line gets activated on the 5TH.

I have got to say that i have never been so pleseantly surprised as i was today, by the efficency of both companies :smashin:

roll on 24 meg yee ha!!!!!

And I believe they still have the refer a friend scheme going where if a friend signs up to the same package as you, both of you get a free month's access. visit the BE forums for more details.

geomuss, have you contacted Be and asked them to change your line from interleaved to fastpath? I have, and now have the full 24mb down and 1.4mb up connection!

I'm way out in the countryside and stuck on BT 2meg Broadband. Even though i'm only 800 meters away from my exchange, i won't get more than 2 meg apparently

wow. Your sure about that? (check http://www.samknows.com/broadband/checker2.php) Cos thats pretty unlucky (IIRC, nearly all of ASDL enabled exchanges have been converted to maxDSL (only something like 200 adsl enabled exchanges haven't been enabled for maxDSL))

That's good to hear mate. I'm due to migrate on Wednesday, from my heavily throttled Virgin connection. I'm 2.5km from the exchange, but I'm looking to get more than the 3 meg i get now.
