Been with them since November on 1mbps and they are fantastic. Couldn't recommend them highly enough.

Now thats what I want to hear. I'm moving from my current ISP on 512k. On the site it says if your migrating then you need to first, migrate to the same 'deal' then upgrade once migrated. The one thing they don't say is if upgrading cost's any extra setup charge! Any ideas?

no extra setup charge if upgrading once you have migrated if I remember correctly. I've been with them also since Nov, no problems, great service.

It's been £9.99 per month for the last 6 months or so, however, I was talking to someone at EFH a little while ago, who said that they will probably have to raise the price ( to start making some money ! )...so would suggest if you are thinking about it, get in there quick...the price you pay ( £9.99 ) is guaranteed for 12 months...

I switched around October, and had a great service too!

Haven't noticed any downtime or anything It's great for the price

I migrated to 1mb (as I was on eclipse flex) then downgraded to 512k a month or so later for free!! £11.74 or something a month inc vat, bargain

I've been with them for over 6 months and they are very good. I've had no real problems at all.

Again, around 6 months here - there was an issue with capacity and connections, both my folks (Blackpool) and I (Newport) were out for a week, but there was constant updates via the site. **** happens.

Still, that was a one off glitch, and for £11.74 a month, I'm still wonderfully glad I changed!

Os`

There might be some good news on the cards for exsisting customers just been reading the forums and the boss has made a post on a thread about the upcoming news on th 16th April , maybe a 1mb connection for the same £9.99 price is on the cards i hope so


Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd better say something here... I should keep my posts about news until I can actually make the post!

First, we will be changing our prices for new customers from the 16th April - we will have a range of new packages then (we have a few press releases out). BUT, and this is the important bit, we have *no plans* to introduce caps for existing customers, and we are not going to do a "mortgage company" trick on everyone by giving better deals to new customers.

As for other news, I will make an announcement one day next week - I am actually on holiday all this week, except for reading the forums from time to time ;-)


Thanks,

Duncan

Maybe I'm being an old sceptic, but as it doesn't appear that EFH are in any way a large company who can absorb losses in order to grow their customer base, and assuming that £9.99/mth is less than wholesale cost...are you confident the service will last into the forseeable future? Just seems too good to be true, tbh, but I'm willing to be shown to be wrong...

interesting stuff deanos ...Hopefully existing customers will get a free upgrade to 1mb like what BT/Pipex etc are offering...

apparently, it only costs ISP's about £6 one off fee for BT to upgrade users from 512k to 1mb

1mb for 9.99 +vat ?...steam in now b4 it's too late folks !!

I thought that spanks, about 6 months ago when I switched from Pipex £24 per month to EFH's £12 per month...suffice to say they are still here offering cracking broadband, and i've saved £70 odd quid so far...In a way I hope it does go up in a few weeks so they start making money and can continue to offer it to me for a another 6 months at 9.99+vat !!

I have the the efh connection and a bt one both on 512 and in direct comparison downloading the same file from the same source bt comes in at 60kbs and the efh 36kbs so it not that fast!!!! cheap yes but i would say the 512 on efh is more like 256.

Well I too moved from Pipex at £24 a month to EFH (been on various broadband 5+ years now) and I am well pleased with them.

Download speeds on my 512 package are nearly 512 and as good as when I was on Pipex.

Only possible downside for the beginner/novice is that there is no email, smtp server or web space included in that cost. (Not a problem if you use webmail such as hotmail, have your own web space or run your own smtp server)

Just thinking, if you're not migrating (like me) and you add on the VAT, then taking the cost across a year it's £18.40 per month. Whilst still good, it's surely not as amazing as it first appears for some...

The easiest answer is to input the different log-in details to the opposite PC. It does work and you'll be able to see if its the line or the ISP
