I'm not an expert on ADSL, however I think that as long as it uses PPPoA
then it will be fine for use in the UK - I know some German Providers use
PPPoE, so this could through a spanner in the works - best to find out what
protocol your intended ISP uses (ALL uk uses PPPoA).

hardware question : does anybody know if it matters if you use a foreign
(belgian, for instance) ADSL modem in the UK ?  I would use a local
microfilter, so i'd have the right frequency range, but i wondered if there
are other issues with this.

(amongst other things, it would be to upgrade debian on my laptop when
traveling about, so there you are : this links it to Linux :-) )
