First off - ignore any postings here that say "go with xxx ISP, they are tops!!!" - this is subjective information and no better than the childish "my car is better that your car". ISPs change from month to month - you need to do your own research!
FYI, I have been with force9 (Plusnet) for about 11 years and am, in general, happy. But there are better ISPs out there - I just don't want the hassle of getting a MAC code and jumping thru the hoops!
From my own research (when force9 were really bad) I have heard great things about Zen
. But if I were starting again (it's not easy swapping ISPs) I would give this
site the once over.
They have a great comparison
section, which may be of help.
Do your homework and don't believe what anyone else tells you. Check out other ISP rating sites and compile your own top 3 list based on your up-to-date research. Do a Google search for "ISP review UK" to start your research. Be prepared to read a lot - it will pay off!
When you think you have chosen a great ISP, I would suggest you have a quick search in Google groups
to see what the up-to-date moan/praise is on your candidate ISPs.
Good luck - let us know who you chose!
