    Broadband ? Sky / BT / Talk Talk opinions

    Our BT infinity deal is coming to an end and we're thinking of changing ISPs We currently have the 76MB infinity 2 with the TV package etc. We hardly ever watch the add on channels so am considering going for a plain old Internet, but as we've been a BT customer for about 15 years have no clue...

    118118 call costs

    Ever use 118118? You might like to think again; "Calls to 118 118 cost £4.49 per call plus £4.49 per minute (a minimum 60 second charge applies) including VAT (tariff code SC087) plus the Access Charge set by the caller's landline or mobile phone provider.". They even charge that after they put...

    So Monday there was an open reach van that pulled down my road and started working, I walked my daughter to school and by the time I got home he'd packed up and left, got back inside and have been left with no dial tone and no internet in my house, spoke to TalkTalk as they are my provider they...

    Southend Energy

    Some friends of ours have just changed over from their current energy provider (gas and electricity) to Southend Energy and reckon they are saving money as a result. I've had a look at the company on the web and have lifted the bit below. Anyone already done this, and are they any good...

    WEMBLEY Tickets

    Woops! I've posted this on the wrong forum, it should have been on the Away Travel forum. This Wembley fever is a terrible thing well might as well leave it where it is! I'm sure that this has/will be posted or quoted numerous times but I will leave here as a sticky for easy reference...
  7. Ref Watch ....... Tranmere A

    We haven’t won at Tranmere for 20 years, so 3 points there is overdue. My best memory of Tranmere away games is a Colin Flatt double in our 2-1 win in 1967. The man in charge is fourth year referee Carl Berry from Cheam in Surrey, so quite a trek for him too, although as the UK and...

    Choosing the best Broadband Provider

    When I moved into my new build house 2 years ago, a handfull of companies told us that being a new area we wouldn't get "fast" broadband, so we got all (tv/phone/internet) with sky. The broadband is so slow it's crazy, and we have had enough. It's so bad that if the Mrs is on her laptop trying...
  9. Why Shouldn't the Education System be Privatised?

    I'm looking for some help here. I was discussing the topic of education with some friends and colleagues when someone made a point that the entire system should be privatised. We all agreed that the universal provision of education was a good thing. My colleague said that didn't necessarily...
  10. Vodafone

    Found this on another forum, had me in stitches! Dear All I thought I would share my ongoing, and unresolved, problems with Vodafone in case anyone had never used their crummy tax-avoiding service before. In summary, I have spoken to a total of 14 (forteen) different customer services...

    Phone Providers

    Following the debacle with BT (See this thread - http://www.shrimperzone.com/vb/showthread.php?67030-BT ) I'm now trying to sort out a new provider for my mum, she doesn't need/want internet, any advice Zoners can offer? I've read good things about Utility Warehouse in Which? but don't know...

    Ticket office blues

    Anyone hoping to phone up and book Cheltenham tickets for Monday can expect a long wait. I've just spent 30 minutes waiting without success to get through, when I started as number 3 in the queue. (I'm sure this has been mentioned before but)why does the endlessly repeated answerphone message...

    Zone Update The Zone is off to the USA

    This coming Friday the 1st of October the Zone will be off-line for a period of time, we are hoping that it will only be during the Friday evening/early hours of Saturday morning. The reason for this is that we are changing our server provider and joining a new one in Chicago...

    Teaching Assistant cuts

    Absolute joke - without TAs in the classrooms these days schools would fall apart. I spent the whole of Thursday dealing with behavioural issues which no teacher would have had time to deal with. They can't have it both ways, they either want inclusivity or they don't - and if they want cut...

    Broadband Provider

    I know this question has been asked before, but not for the last three months I think, so I thought I would see if anyone has any up to date answers. A friend of mine has recently moved to a new flat, and is looking to get broadband installed. She has a BT line and is thinking of maybe going...

    Chelsea: Live streaming from the bridge

    I am launching this thread to hopefully be be of assistance to myself and others who will not be fortunate enough to be at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and who want to watch the match on their computers rather than listening on BW. As a number of you will know, I'm not exactly a whiz-kid on...

    Swapping mobile phone providers.

    I have been with Orange since I was 18 and never found them too bad to be honest. However since I have moved in with Mrs DtS I can no longer get a signal at home which has gone beyond a joke. Had a blazing row with some Northern Dullard and the long and shot of it despite being in my contract I...
