Thumbs up Which Best Buy for Broadband: Zen Internet!

Guys, I thought you might be interested to know which broadband service the veteran consumer group Which recommends. It's Zen Internet. I have to admit I hadn't heard of them but the reviews are very good.



Anyone has experience with them?

I upgraded my BT to their Infinity 2 Unlimited usage with up to 76mb download for my work which requires meeting people online a lot and to accommodate the heavy use of those I share the property with.

40.99 per month

It still cuts out 2-3 times a day although it quickly revives itself otherwise its fine I think. The Netflix on the Kindle buffers 2-3 times when I use it for a few hours.

Please tell me the costs and specs of your Zen service.

Does it still disconnect when using an Ethernet connection ?

If those you are sharing the connection with are heavy users then they could be maxing out the bandwidth to cause the disconnects, either through what they are down or uploading - in which case perhaps you should look at QoS to share out the bandwidth between users.

Currently AFAIK, BT Hubs don't provision QoS so you would have to get a different router - or broadband package.

As for Zen, it would probably be best for you to contact them to see what they have to offer, but other than perhaps Virgin if they service your area, I think 76Mbps tends to be the max available to home users.

Check to see what the max speed is available for your area - https://www.uswitch.com/broadband/gu...adband_speeds/
