BT is just generally a horrible company! When my flatmates and I went with them they didn't configure the connection properly at their end; fair enough mistakes happen, I can forgive human error most of the time as long as it's fixed promptly.

What I cannot forgive is being told it's working perfectly and we haven't set it up properly. But that's okay they'll send an engineer for £80; I don't think so pals!

On top of that, when we finally did get connected they claimed that in the month that we weren't connected we downloaded 100G worth of stuff; considering that even when we have internet the only big download is an ISO every 6 months I find that highly unlikely.

Value for money at £112p/q?
