What to Look for in a DSL Provider

Feb 5, 2008
So you are looking for a DSL provider but have previously been stuck with one that you didn't like, then you know just how important it is to make a good, sound decision about the company you choose to supply your DSL service for you and get it right. If not, you could end up paying a whole load of extra money in fees for terminating a contract or paying for a service that you are not satisfied with.

If you want to avoid either or both of these happening to you, read on for more information on what you should be looking for the next time you are in the market for a DSL provider.

These days there are a lot of small phone and internet companies that seem to be popping out of virtually nowhere. This is not always a problem, but these companies are not always the most skilled in what it is they are doing and they don't always offer the best service, at least not at the very beginning. Sometimes these companies take a bit of coaxing and complaining on the behalf of the customer in order to get things right, and many times they end up getting bought out by a larger conglomerate of a company in the end anyhow.

If you want to avoid this happening to you, look for a company with a reputation that you have heard of before. This doesn't mean go with the monopoly, but if that is what it takes to get a DSL provider that you can trust, you might just have to do that.

Many a DSL provider out there gets their customers by promising them that all they will have to pay is a really low rate every month, while the small print reads that that is just for six months and that service will be some other outrageous price for every month thereafter. Many people think that they can just get out of the service when that point comes, without really stopping to realise that they are bound by contract to that company and may have to pay to get out.

It is important to look out for good prices, not prices that are too good to be true.

Another important thing to look for in a DSL provider is good service, preferably great or even outstanding customer service. It may not matter much to you now whether or not the salespeople have any tact, but when your service is down and it has been down for several hours and you can't get your work done chances are that you are going to wish you had taken the time to find a company that actually pretended to care about how you felt about things and took the time to train their associates accordingly. It may not seem like a big deal now, but there will come a time when you will care.
