    Default Phone/TV/Broadband?

    Looking for some advice on the best packages out there?

    Currently pay £12 per month to BT for phone line rental, yet dont make ANY calls.

    £36.50 for Sky Tv with movies

    and £14 per month for upto 8meg BB with F2s.

    Total cost almost £63!!

    Any ideas for cheaper alternatives - Tiscali do all 3 as above for £24.99 all in yet have bad reviews (just bought by talk talk so should improve?)

    BT do all above for £41.58 but 18month contact.

    Can't get Virgin media as not in cable area.

    Any advise?

    When you get the TalkTalk wireless router the username and password have already been entered for you so you just plug everything in and it works straight away.No messing with discs and usernames etc.Easy

    If you connect using an ethernet cable then its good to go.If you connect wirelessly then the network key is on the bottom of the router.
    Alot of broadband routers need you to go into the setup configuration page to enter your username and password but with TalkTalk its already done for you.

    First you need to go to http://www.samknows.com/broadband/search.php and see what providors are in your exchange

    Im with Talk Talk, £17.50 for 8mb broadband, free local calls 24/7, free calls in the evenings & weekends, free caller display & free voicemail.

    I get great speeds too...
