Well the super gay, I would have thought Nevill had its own super fast highway, unlike us slags in Winterbourne.

I was on 16mb sky BB and, after a few teething problems when i first joined, has been superb ever since. I down graded to 8mb this week and haven't noticed a great deal of difference.

Thoroughly agree that Tiscali/Pipex is rubbish - don't touch!
I changed to BT 8meg too and it seems very slow - but I'm locked into the standard 12 month contract so will have to wait before I can change again.
Pah!

I use Be Internet and recommend them to fellow Lewisians, or at least those who live fairly near the telephone exchange, without reservation. They are faster than Sky - advertised speeds up to 24 meg (I think Sky is up to 16 meg). I live in the Cliffe and get a connection speed of 20 meg. I have used them for the best part of a year and only had connection problems on one occasion. If you want to check them out (they have now merged with O2, and it was at the time of the merger that the connection problems occurred nationally) then their address is www dot bethere dot co dot uk.
Good luck.
TT.

I also use BE, without giving too much info about myself, I'm in landport and get a 13meg connection. you have to pay 2/month for their email which is not always brilliant but their are a few other email providers if you wan't a cheaper/better email service.

I've been with Eclipse for about 5 years. I've got 8meg asnd it's very good, their service is excellent and on the rare occasions I've had to ring them for anything they've been utterly charming and helpful. they're enmdlessly patient when it comes to talking a technological ignoramus through setting stuff up as well.
They're funny, too - one guy asked me about my dogs when they were barking in the background while I was on the phone, and now if they bark when I'm on to Eclipse they ask to say hello to the dogs by name, so they've obviously got that info logged!

Im with Be* broadband, i get 16mb as the internal house wiring isn't that great. They don't do any throttling or capping so great for downloads.
With regards to mobile broadband, i know tmobile doesnt have a good 3g signal in lewes so dont go with them.
