Good Isp Cause Pipex Are Rubbish

I have pipex homecall package, i only just took out the package but have terms to cancel for false sale of there product. Im looking for good Internet service provider that is good for gaming. At the moment im affected by the fair usage policies and also when i have restricted internet services i only connect at 500kbps but have fairly low ping. when i connect at 1.5 to 2mb i have very high game pings. Im looking for a service that has dedicated fast service with no restrictions. i dont want to spend an arm and a leg for good service. I have had a new wiring system put into my house by bt so i know my wiring is good.

Thanks in advance

Richard Chowns

Customer Service is second to none and I work in customer service for a different ISP. They pick up the phone in less than a minute, and they get the problem sorted no messing. Decent people on the phone too!

Due to the fact that they are a reasonably small ISP, you benefit from great customer service and the speeds+pings are much better. Less competing even though you are on a 50:1 connection as far as I know...
