Rock solid for 10 months. 4 hrs of downtime. Totally happy with ntl as a server pipe. The only issue is upload. I only get 128k upload, which means its useless for games. 

But we only host muds and ftp/irc so its all good. We use QOS kernel level packet priorities to keep it bearable and reduce lag. Usually people ftp all day, all night a-la-kazaa. Super pipes are nice,
but if you just plan ahead and say, "hmm, I'd like to watch that maybe tomorrow night." you can ..


Only issue is the domain, its a hassle to put up with people like no-ip and their frankly bizarre policies. I was banned for running an irc server which they took exception too, despite we not
actually using their domain. I took exception to them telling me what I can and cant run on my own server and so .. 

I need a new domain. umbrel.la looks good. :)
