    Hmmm....2mb for less than I am paying for 1mb - sounds almost too good to be true. Anyone use it? Dont want to give up a very reliable connection for a crap one by a fly-by-night company but 2mb is v appealing.

    Hi all,

    Wingzero21, how have you found the company?
    I'm looking to go to 1mb access at a new house
    and the £26.99 is extremely tempting.

    I presume it is so cheap because they have an initial set-up charge of £58.75, whereas other companies include that in their monthly charging structure?

    Cheers,

    Sanj

    No actually the reason it is quite cheap is that it uses a different technolgy from the normal ADSL links which is known as IP stream, they use a large and well know telecommunications company know as telefonica! (Big in Europe) They use datastream and this is cheaper on the exchanges to my knowledge etc.... There is a downside and that is that gaming is not too good on some servers as they route through germany I believe, but there is a debate at the moment they may be changing the routing back to through the uk!!!

    A company called Hi-Volcity use the same thing but route through the uk, have similar prices! For me though Central point connection is pretty damn good I am getting 850-930 k connection near enough all the time and it is good for the money I pay!!

    For more indepth information I suggest you check outAdslGuide and check the forums thats how I got my provider etc its really helpful!!!

    PS: When I signed up the connection fee was 30 quid I believe, they put it up???
