I thought BT dropped Phorm back in 2009.. I would never have gone with
BT if they hadn't.  They've also just changed (or at least are
changing) their fair usage policies and removing the 320Gb cap for
Infinity.  They reserve the right to traffic shape if necessary for
very heavy users, but pretty much free for all at this time is what I
gather from various sources.

Yes, indeed - although I am also very fond of Andrews & Arnold.
Wasn't too impressed with the Zyxel router they supplied though :(
