Yeh I was looking at the different packages page and the bt basic option seemed like the best for me then as I looked down the list it said only 1 pc can be conected but 1 or more with the more expensive option, I need 2 pcs on broadband is there anyway I could use the basic one for the 2 pcs?

    yes, as long as you purchase a ADSL router to share the connection.

    BT Don't support SMTP I think, so it stops you using Outlook also they're more likely to stop you file sharing.

    Prices are supposed to come down next month so might be worth waiting

    It is actually, though i don't know if it's just because all I've ever tried apart from Hotmail is GMail and it's never worked with it.
