View Full Version : Broadband providers

Our exchange is getting connected next week but I can't find out whether I can still use my current ISP which is surefish, even from them. There seems to be a list of registered providers up here but I'm not sure if this is exclusive or just a sample choice. Does anyone local use one of the smaller ISPs or know anything about this?

Have a look at www.adslguide.org

thanks for that link - it's the longest I've seen so far but still doesn't show my ISP. Not sure what to make of that. I've been trying to phone them but guess what - all their lines are busy!

If you cant get through to an ISP then they are not worth having.

I'd punt them.

If there is nothing on their website about ADSL then cancel.

Actually it's the first time I've had a problem with them answering but I agree it's not acceptable. They do ADSL but they don't appear on any listings. Maybe it doesn't matter. Who knows? Thanks anyway.

Today I saw men with a white van laying cable alongside the back road to Reay. I hope that is broadband coming our way at last?

Broadband will be available in Reay on the 31st of December 2005.

This date might change and be brought forward.
