    Just realised that Waitrose has come out top of the Which ? survey for the last 2 years.

    Is anybody using Waitrose as an isp ? good, bad, indifferent ?

    Any other ramblings will do because I am fed up with Tiscali and that old error 33 seems to be linked to them.

    Ta :)

    Without answering your question.

    Error 33 is bloody annoying isn't it.

    Yesterday I got cut off at 1.50pm :mad:

    EDIT: From what I've seen and heard, ADSL24 is quite good.

    Yes they do but I have NEVER come across ANYONE who uses Waitrose. However posh people use both Waitrose and Which.

    I think waitrose BB & mad as a fish are both owned by Brightview (or there's some sort of tie in at least)....and I further believe brightview were taken over by BT. Pre BT they both had quite a good rep from the admittedly few reports I can recall. Post BT I am not so sure.

    In any case I cant really see who they are aiming at. £19 per month for a 5GB limit on a 12 month contract. Even if they are excellent I just could not justify that cost when you have Entanet resellers with very good reps offering 330GB for £20 on one month contract.

    And I agree BE (or maybe Sky Max) offering even better value.
