dermod in salisbury Tech: UK Broadband Fasthosts Warning (27) RE: Tech: UK Broadband Fasthosts Warning 17 Oct 06

Interesting to note that someone moved to BTYahoo to get away from Freeserve. I moved to AOL to get away from BTYahoo. ISPs are a bit like banks. One is basically as bad as another, so in the merrygoround of switched accounts by irate customers, the trade has no netlosers.   Slow broadband due to web congestion is a growing and universal problem. Some sort of metering system which would graduate the charge according to the real speed experienced would be nice, but not likely. As far as blocked sites is concerned, anything which curtails such sites must be good. But as regards tracking, I think I am right in understanding that on a computer anything you do from the moment you switch it on is recorded somehow or somewhere and remains so until your disk is pulverised or your ISP is nuked. And maybe not even then.
