How do find a suitable ISP?

<spike>

Guest
I am currently with Freeserve and have started to experience a slow connection. I am thinking of changing to a new ISP but I dont know which one to choose. I spend approx £15 per quarter so the pay as you go rates are probably the best.
Can anyone give me some advice?

There are so many isps out there,

I would suggest trying the visp I have got set-up, there is no email address, but you can get one from one of the free providers.

Username: guest
Password: guest1

Dialup Number: 0845 234 9800
Connection Support: 300 bps - 56 kbps (V.90)
ISDN 64 kbps
Multi Channel ISDN 128 kbps
Protocol Support: Point to Point (PPP)
Multi Link (MLPPP)
Connection IP Address: Dynamic (Server Assigned)
DNS IP Address: Server Assigned (195.182.161.246)

I think you should experince very fast speeds, as hardly anyone uses it.

Since there are so many to choose from - and few that charge for the privilege of being a member - just take a look at the list of ISPs here: <a href="http://www.ispreview.co.uk/list.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.ispreview.co.uk/list.shtml</a>

Sign up to as many as you fancy and give them a go... if one proves to be slow then move on - if it proves to be good then stay put!

Personally I recommend Vispa (having used them for a considerable amount of time) - but as I said, there's plenty to choose from, so make your own mind up...

There is a slight problem with this, and if you want to keep changing isps you will have to keep changing email accounts. If you want to do this I would suggest obtaining a free account from someone like Yahoo, so this doesn't matter.

I'd give KernowServe a try. They offer a range of packages - I'm on HomeFree24 with them but have recommened 0845 accounts to my friends and reports have come back very good. 100% availability and very fast speeds - their support is impressive.
