    Hi guys, My isp is Cable & Wireless and with my 56k external im pinging at about 120+ (on the servers i play on) now i get a great connex with C&W (54,667)but i want more:) so im switching to BT and going the ADSL route with them, its called BT open world They supply the Adsl modem and i pay em £40.00 month for 24/7 access. What i need to know, is: Is adsl that much faster/better than isdn, how much does isdn cost over here what do i need to install isdn, 2 lines or just 1 for single isdn (is there such a thing?)
    This is a rather loooooong question and may require a long answer but im relying on you guys ;-)) to help me out. Any feedback sure would be appriceated (i wish i could spell that word)and you will get your reward in heaven :)
    Thanks in advance guys
    Axel

    Don't bother with ISDN. Compared to ADSL it's looking very long in the tooth now and you should only really get it if you can't get ADSL.

    I'm going with the BT deal too (because they'll have the most pressure on them to provide a good service, being BT 'n all :) ) To me, £40 a month for 24/7 net access at 512k/128k is pretty damn good, considering the high phone charges using a 56k dialup.

    Here's a replay of what I just posted on the GT forums:

    I just rang the BT ADSL helpline, and the lady on the other end told me that it will NOT be possible to host multiplayer games with BT Openworld. This is because a firewall will be installed. Trust BT to fuxx up a good thing.

    If you want to call the helpline, the number is 0845 6094664.
