    I have a choice of broadband in my area - either the BT broadband or a mesh broadband provider giving a wireless connection that they claim a connection that you dont need to share bandwidth with your neighbours.

    2 questions really :

    1. which is the better option - BT or Mesh?

    2. can I use my work laptop on broadband to reach my company email message server, I use a secure dialup connection at the moment.

    well, to start off as no-one else has replied yet -

    1) dunno - not in the UK
    2) depends on your work set-up
    I also use a secure dial-up, but.... can also access work at home through a broad band PCAnywhere connection.
    I would ask your IT guys at work IMHO.

    1. What does BT stand for?
