hello all

I am here to pick the  brains of all you good people out there

I have a couple of older people here that are looking for a broadband/ internet  provider

they have just signed up for a new contract on the phone but when they asked about broadband it wasn't cheap...they would only used it a couple of hours aday if that, they are looking for a decent but cheap bradband that they can use seperate to their phone( i know it works on the phone line )
 do you know of a broad band provider that does not include calls or tv package just the broad band . if so can you let me know who they are

many thanks

I can't really help you, we have BT, and as my husband works almost half the time at home, (when he's not overseas) the Company provide it.
My father-in-law too (almost 80) has BT too, but he is paying far too much, we keep trying to get him to get a package (he does like going online quite a bit tho)
I think some of my friends have talk/talk as it seems to be cheaper (and also my sister has it too- I will ask) they usually hunt around for the best deals.
Another option, if you are all close together can one of you get it, and you all use it, ie log into broadband with the one  password.
I know I can pick up several around here (when kids searching for the Wi-Fi, or as i call it to annoy them the wiffy connection) several pop -up
My neighbour (previously when we rented a furnished semi, before we bought here) used to use the one from the house we rented, as the owner covered it, as he maintained the property (initially was a holiday let).
 
Tell them to take care usually you are tied in also for at least 6 months I think, and possibly a years contract.

Sorry moonshine, have only just seen this. Can't add anything to what Bren said. I'd go for the dongle too in their position.
