[Colchester] Best ISP?

Zen Internet[1] has offered an excellent service in the past, and I
would not hesitate to reccommend them to anyone asking about a suitable
ISP. They are, however, relatively business-centric, but they do still
offer deals for home users. This is my Dad's preferred ISP, and he's
extremely fussy, so you can be pretty sure they offer quality.

I have also had many people reccommend Be[2], they seem to offer an
excellent deal: Unlimited 24Mbit for £24 a month. For an extra £4, you
can get a static IP address - suitable if you want to setup a home
server. Unfortunately, they don't offer their service where we live, so
I haven't had a chance to use them myself.

At the moment, I'm using BT Internet[3] - Unlimited 8Mbit for around
£23-£25 per month. It came with a BT HomeHub, which was bundled with a
BT Hub Phone, which connects to the BT Broadband talk service - allowing
us to make free evening/weekend calls. Rather spiffy deal. They're
normally white. But we got the limited edition black version ^.^ I
haven't really been using BT Internet long enough to have formed much of
an opinion on them, but they seem to be doing OK for now.
