Newest Review: ... okay and seemed to be quick and relatively reliable, but oh dear, as portals go the IC24 site was an absolute canine. Atrocious colours, amateurish, ill considered design, very dull content, difficult to read on the high resolution which I use my monitor at, slow to function and unimaginative with dull articles - I don't think they could have done a much worse job if they'd have been trying. Well, I certainly wouldn't be visiting them again... Okay, the next day I tried to get set up for the free access I had been promised. The first problem seemed to be that they were only offering the free time until a certain date - it h... more

IC24 - supposed to be free after eight of an evening wasn't it? - well, let me tell you - I signed up six months ago after an awful lot of hassle with a previous provider (sorry, you'll have to guess but they always were Big Trouble, think about it, not too hard, because I want you to read this). IC24 have long since abandoned their free net surfing offer, so don't even try and get with it any more, but I thought it would be useful to give you an insight into my experiences with this ISP. It took me quite some time to get IC24 loaded up the first time and there were a lot of problems with it - I got the normal ones like the software trying ... Read the complete review

IC24 was the first isp in UK to offer tottaly free internet access on weekends with out any subscription or local call rate charges un like any other ISP who claimed free access but charged you at local call rate. It used to be the best but now that so many free packages are available it may not be the best any more but still speed wise it is superior to many other. You can still get free access from 9 to 5 pm on weekends and at local call rate at other times.I used to get connected immediately but now you experience engage tones very often. So as compared to other services available now it is no more recommended but still if you use ... Read the complete review

An email received today (31-05-2001) from ic24, the Internet Service Provider from the HUGE Trinity Group (which includes cable TV stations, the Daily & Sunday Mirror, The People and a multitude of free and pay newspapers up and down the country - as well as overseas interests) have indicated that their free 0800 internent access offer was to end after around a year in one form or another, citing the service cannot be sustained. Here's the email (with my commentns after it) - Dear IC24 User Internet access service trends have gone through some of the fastest transitions of any customer service in history , and this continues ...

The update is at the end of this op.I first started with IC24 last year it was my first ISP I really searched around for one that was genuinely free.I used to have a bit of trouble getting on at the weekend (when the free time was 8 till5) but since it changed to 8 to 12 every day I dont really have any trouble. The max I have to try for is between 2 and 5 mins. The pages appear really fast, with IE5.5 not so fast with Netscape 6. The only real gripe I have is the e-mail server goes down quite a lot, last time for 3 or 4 days,which can be a pain. When I first started I had a lot of trouble sending and receiving e-mail.I went to loads of places for help but did not get ... Read the complete review

I have an ic24 for free ISP. The great thing is it's free of charge, no bills, BUT and a very big BUT because, for some reason they've come up with an ingenious idea. The idea being: "I know, lets cut them off every hour to increase the chance of them getting cheesed off and shove a cat into a microwave...", well somewhere along the lines of that. Why in all honesty have they put it in, some one help because I have fried my cat several times now... ... Read the complete review
