    Most reliable/best ISP 13th Apr 18 at 5:04 PM
    I've just won my case against BT through the Ombudsman for Communications. I should be able to leave unpenalised within the next month or so. Im wary of making a bad choice after dealing with the total incompetence shown to me by BT and was wondering (if such a thing exists) which internet service provider is known to be rated best by customers? Im looking fr unlimited broadband and live in a city so have access to most ISPs.

    Anyone any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

    As others will tell you, Andrews & Arnold and Zen are considered by many to be the best. Of course, they are not the cheapest by quite a long way.

    You checked google for the lovemoney link on best and worst for broadband providers ?

    I'm with Virgin Media and its great, no issues other than the very rare issue where there's no internet but its quickly fixed.

    Andrews and Arnold are the best. Got to ISPreview and click on "top 10" and see which ISP is top

    I have used them since 2003 (never "switched") and recommend them.

    I am in the process of looking for a new ISP at the moment and had never heard of ISPreview .

    It will be a great help.

    A&A, Zen and Aquiss from my own experience.

    Aquiss are my current provider. I'm sure there are more, but the best has to be quantifiable and sit with the right +ve's for you.

    I like Aquiss because speed is always great, support has been amazing for some tech bits I have needed and their billing system is easy to work with.

    Oh, also I have true unlimited GB's, which with a house full of near teenagers, Prime, and tablets is really a must.
