It was essential for me to get a reliable Internet connection set up in Poland. I rely on the Internet to run my little business. I like to use email and skype to keep in contact with friends and family and I like to read news sites such as BBC news to keep up to date with what's happening back in the UK. Not to mention the handful of websites I run (and this blog too!).
In the UK there is a plethora of Internet Service Providers to choose from. In Poland where things aren't yet so commercialised/privatised there are currently 3. The Polish equivalent of BT is called TP (Telekomunikacja Polska) and still has the monopoly on phone and internet. The new kids on the block are two fast-growing competitors - Netia.pl and Tele2.pl
The website www.szybki-tani-internet.com is only in Polish but shows prices from all 3 and has the links to their offers.
