Who was your first Internet Service Provider?


aka ginger warlock
It doesn't seem it but I first got the internet in 2000 here in the UK. My parents knew nothing of how it worked and we signed up to payg on dial up on Freeserve. I don't know what happened to them but I know in the five years I lived at home we went through a lot of providers. For the past five years I have used fibre-optic broadband from Virgin Media and I can't see myself ever changing but who did you go with? Are you still on Dial Up as you need nothing more than that or could you not survive on it?

I cannot remember now. It may have been Tiscali dial up. Or broadband. This was back when I was just starting my GCSEs.

Pacific Bell Dial Up.

Then our first DSL was through Hughes Net. Might was well have just been Dial Up :hah:

If memory serves my first ISP was Demon..or Demon dowload? Something like that anyway. It was a free dial-up service at the time.

Then with Cambridge cable->NTL->Virgin.

It was ten years ago and we bought an AOL CD from somewhere. If I remember correctly there was some guy in town selling them. We had a BT phone line so I think that was our only option.
