    We have ti with Telewest, and it's prefectly good. Unless you're doing serious downloaduing you don't need much more.

    Yes... a 256would be fine, offers fast surfing and semi-fast downloading.. good choice for a budget:)

    It would be fine for browsing pictures and such, and everyday tasks. The only time you would notice the difference between that and a "full" broadband connection would be if you were trying to download lots of big things at once.

    you will be able to download up to 30 kb/s which is fine for normal internet usage.

    you only really need a faster internet connection if you plan on doing a lot of big downloading, i.e movies and such.

    256 kbp/s internet is fine for normal internet usage.
