Switching Broadband Provider

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I've been with Pipex for 2 to 3 years now.

But now TalkTalk is offering same speed access+ free UK landlines cals day and night and free calls to the USA, Canada and Oz off peak and weekends. For a total of £24.99 per month which is only £1.55p more then I pay for internet alone from Pipex.

So question is any forseeable problems in switching?

My only questiosn are if TalkTalk provide SMTP Servers and block any ports, but wary that service might vary a great deals from one provider to another. Anyone ever switched between ADSL providers?

    It's nice to see a bit of competition in the combined phone and broadband market where I live cos there's no cable broadband where I live!!

    Should be fine, providing both of them use the standard method, I think it's been made a lot easier now so that you don't get disconnected. Something to do with codes and stuff.

    My only concern for you wouldbe the fact that TalkTalk is the carphone warehouse.

    And they are the very epitome of thieving scum- they make NTL look good.

    Yeah it's called a MAC code, although pipex don't make it easy to find that code.
