We used Gio ISDN in an office where DSL was unavailable. They disabled our
account when they discovered we were connected most of the daytime. We now
use Demon with no problems to date. Although I think theyre more expensive
and pretty sure they don't support both channels when connecting to their
'ROMP' that provides unmetered services.
