I've had nothing but slow, expensive broadband with incompetent customer service. Does anyone get decent broadband in Lewes??

I have used the much maligned TalkTalk for years with no issues at all. Its probably not the fastest and might not be the cheapest any more ( I haven't checked for ages) but it is perfectly adequate for my multi tv/laptop/phone needs. Someone will reply saying what a load of cr@p they are but I can only speak as I find.

I can't speak for all of Lewes area, but out here on the edge, I've got no complaints about BT these days. They might not be the cheapest but it works for multiple users simultaneously all over our house and in the garden up to a good distance, and there is no problem watching Netflix or BBC iplayer, or other online tv. Download speed is 67mps. Fibre with Halo 1. Expensive at £49 a month, but you get what you pay for. £10-12 a week for the hundreds of hours of work and play enjoyed by 3 people is cheap when it's problem free. Hope this helps.

I recently went over to virgin thinking that the cable would provide a better service. How wrong I was. Impossible to get hold of to complain to as well. Talk talk was much better although it does apparently depend how near you are to the exchange.

Iím having a very different experience with Virgin cable in Wallands. Very fast (over 300mb download), stable and reliable. Not cheap (I pay nearly £120 a month for full TV & phone package) but worth it. Customer service, should it be required, easily accessed by phone.

Cloudscape. And they have a Brighton HQ (or now perhaps just an office). Fibre 40-10 £20 a month and phone line rental £12.50 a month.
