It's just an ADSL service so there is no reason it should not work.

I would caution that you should do some checking before signing up with
TT though. They have an appalling reputation for poor service and
support and I know for a fact that they provision the service on the
basis that customers will not use more than 10% of their FUP allowance
(ie their 40GB FUP is actually 4GB before their systems consider you to
be overusing the connection).

You can see a lot of reviews on the thinkbroadband.com forums.

There are lots of ISPs offering better services.
