I'm currently with AOL and have been for a number of years. I'm getting a lot of connection problems so I'm thinking of changing ISP. Any recommendations for a good ISP.

Good plan, AOL is awful. I've heard good things about Bulldog recently. I have cable because it comes with my tv and phone package and I'm too lazy to change, but I would avoid NTL at all costs. Telewest is better, but cable is expensive in comparison with dsl.

I don't see the problem with NTL now, they have merged with Telewest. In fact, when you click through from the NTL pages, it redirects to the Telewest domain anyway! Their cheapest deal is actually not too bad. It really depends on what you need and use it for. Do you download large amounts of high-bandwidth data, like audio, video or software? Or do you just use it to surf the Web and emailing? What sort of speed are you used to, and what sort of speed do you think you could cope with?
