What is the deal with the 087 on xtra dial up.Do u still need to use the 087 number, or is there a different number. Is the different number any better?

To add to that, my internet has been really bad lately, it has been struggling to hold the connection, expeciall with kazaa open. It starts off fine, but after a while just drops the line. We have 4 modems and 5 phones connected in our flat, would this contribute at all, even thought the other computers dont seem to have a problem?

Hi, the only dial in number for Xtra is 087303030.
087303032 may still be available in some areas but is getting removed over the next while

Hi Stephan

I don't think that five phones will exactly help your connection speed so try unplugging them for one session and see if it helps.

With that many flatmates you ought to be able to afford a Jetstart connection that you can all share at once, or at least a second line. Do you all have separate ISP accounts?

Hi,

I had exactly the same problem. I was getting horendous transfer rates, in the end I changed my ISP from extra to Orcon.... vola!
I know have excellent data rates and much friendlier user support.

Cheers
