Changing ISP

15 Jun 2009 • 1 min read

I've been a loyal Demon Internet customer for a long time now (since 1989 I think). But the time has come to change as they're simply just not the same ISP I first joined, started going downhill when they were bought by Thus. Service speed degradation is now common and sometimes the PPP is just dead even though it gets an IP address. Also, they have no plans for native IPv6.

So I'm changing to Goscomb Technologies because they are slightly cheaper than Demon, have a 24Mb service NOW and offer native IPv6. I did have cause to phone Goscomb up, and it was nice to hear a native English speaker at the other end on a good quality line instead of a non native speaker on a poor quality line due to the customer services section being out sourced. Another plus.

What does this mean for you? Well, on the 29th of this month, the switch should be made, so there will be some downtime and delay whilst the DNS updates. So this is also a heads up 😃
