Advantages: fast download speeds, always on, can use you phone line at the same time.
Disadvantages: the slight phone problem, the 10 switch on
Ok now before i start this is about FREESERVE BROADBAND and not about any other part of freeserve as i haven't used it all. Just Braodband ok?
Right now that's sorted out let's get to it. Now Broadband has been around for years. It's just very few people could get it, what with not being able to get cable or not living in built up areas. (I don't make the rules.) But that's now almost changed. (Only almost mind you.:) ) With freeserve Broadband you can get faster download speeds, better 'always on@ connection. But is it any good?
Well yes and no..........
The positive's are faster times which we got it to 76.2k per second which is fast, so it reduces the chance of get no patience 'comp rage' and with it being 'always on' ie it splits your phone line with a ASDL filter.
The downside to this is that if you have more than one phone it can screw up your comp. if for example you use a phone that isn't connect to the same socket as the filter then you hear interferance on the line and it screws up the moden connection.
When you do buy the modem and register it can take up to ten working days for freeserve to enable the line so you can use the modem.
buying the modem costs at the momemt £84.99 (that's not including the £65 pound connection fee, but dixons are not charging that at the moment.) then the charge to use it is £29.99 a month. Not the cheapist but again for 24-7 access who's complaining?
