I got my connection on the 30th March, Couldn'y connect using the software due to a 'typo' by Connect25 in my password field, so I phoned their tech support helpline.......which took me 6 DAYS to get through to them, even telephoning them from work every minute I could. Eventually got sorted, Fairly quick connection speed, Bloody Huge Banner on the screen.....still I only paid £49 for a year's connection, I can put up with that.......but, as of 16th April I can't connect using their freefone software provided, the line sounds like it's dead, and the local rate number provided will not verify my password! I have tried to get through to the support line since then ... Read the complete review

This site started out great, I saw an advert for £25 for a whole years unlimited internet access in PC Format Magazine in late 2000 and was very suspicous this was a scam. However, I thought if this is legitimate I want to be one of the first on the waiting list for such a cheap deal, and took the gamble. It paid off, and I have a whole years unlimited access for £25. However, soon after, this price had risen to £49 for a years access, still a reasonable deal I thought, and the price increase didn;t surprise me greatly. However, I again looked at the price on their website in February and noticed the price had risen to £25 subscription fee and then a fee of ... Read the complete review

These guys took about 30 seconds to take my money, were then non contactable for two days, voice mail only, took a further three days to issue a user name, it took 31 minutes to download their dialup software which installed clean and does NOT dial. Two weeks in I have no service, no response to my communications, and NO REFUND. The published price is attractive but the reality is a rip off. Do not sign up, this is a bad deal and I can not think of any more words without descending in to foul and abusive language ... Read the complete review

They used to be known as Connect25 because that was how much they used to charge for their 24/7 unmetered access. Now its £49. Is it still worth it? Well considering that payment covers you for a full year's Internet access, most certainly. Although it does have its problems. At peak times I often find it difficult to get through due to it being constantly engaged. But once you get on, the speeds are reasonable and useable. What do you expect for £49 per year? For a high quality connection you need to splash out a bit but the same can be said for everything else in life. You wouldn't expect to cruse down the M6 at around 100mph in a ...
