    Sounds good on the face of it, until you read deeper.

    LLU again..i'm biased against LLU due to shocking experiences with UKOnlines LLU based service. Plus at 20 quid a month these guys will go backrupt within a year i bet. Theres no-way they can do it..unless i;m missing something here, this is too good to be true.

    I'm going to be signing up asap, but the gaylords at Tiscali don't allow MAC-code migrations yet. Sorry but slightly annoyed by them

    Yeah I'm looking at the 24Mb lines and wonder what the limits are. sure is cheaper than the fibernet at the office and twice as fast.

    They are LLU using adsl2 - so 3km from the exchange and you'll be down in the 8-2Mb region still as it drops quicker than a brainiac's dishwasher

    hehe the advantage of living right near the city and only 400m from an ADSL2/LLU enabled exchange

    But no guarantee QoS, SLA or any other good things that a rock solid mission critical business connection might need
