128k - highly recommended!

Hi,

Usually I'm not one to praise but I thought this ISP deserved a mention.

I signed up last Thursday for their off-peak 128k access, costing £17.50 a month. Unmetered activation isn't immediate (they have to register your CLI with their telco, and they quote one working day for this to happen), however I signed up on Thursday night, and my off-peak access was available by 18:00 on Friday so I have no qualms. That said, immediate activation would be nice, but nevermind. In the meantime, 0845 access was available, and I could access the user area of their webpage to have a look around.

I've retained my AOL account, so am essentially paying £33.49 a month for ISP fees (£17.50 to Quik, and £15.99 to AOL). This affords me 24/7 access (via AOL), and 128k access when I need it up to 150 hours per month (I believe that's Quik's fair usage, so might not suit all in that regard).

Now, the service itself. I've tested it at all times during my off peak hours, and I haven't _once_ received an engaged tone. Exceptional. My sole use of 128k is to download (otherwise I use my AOL account) and I consistently get an _average_ of 14/15Kb per second per download (I'm not talking peaks here, I'm talking about averages). This is regardless of the time I connect, and, again, is exceptional!

That's all. I think excellence needs to be praised, and Quik seem to be approaching it. I hope they keep it up!
