bt exchanges i defo agrea with you there we are tied down with crappy karoo for an isp and cant get any other isp without a bt line but then we will be to far away from a bt exchange to get broadband. realy our isp Karoo is the worst i hav ever known there servers crash at least once a week!!

also you cant always connect so i will ring their help line up and they try telling my that my computer is connected to the internet even though i have switched it off and unpluged it from both powere and the phone line!! and then they try telling me they will send my an e-mail to prove that i am connected thats great but i cant get on the internet to recieve or view the e-mail. those people realy stress me out!!

they r cheep on phone calls though 5.5pence for a local call no matter when or how long you are on the phone

and your right the pictuer is i bit to big int it!! lol its the only one i could find of it

and i read in the local news paper last night that this place has just recieved 3 awards!!! dont know how they managed it! everbody who has an internet connection an Hull and the sorounding area hates karoo and want another ISP but karoo have the manopoly of ISPs in our area you either can have karoo as your ISP or you dont get a internet connection and when ever you ring the helpline which is reguraly (usualy to find out when there servers will be back on line so i can get on the net) its always busy and takes about 1/2 -1 hour to get through to them!!

surly ther must be something to stop them monoplising the ISP in our area like with what happend to BT when they was manopolising the ISPs and wouldnt let anybody els use ther exchanges and now they have to
