We've had problems with Eclipse recently because they take a long time
to get back to you if there's a problem. I know everyone is waiting on
BT to get back to them but still it would be nice if they told you that.
We find Zen fairly good for support and performance but they charge a
lot for Unlimited.


The ultimate techy ADSL provier are Andrews and Arnold. They spend most
of their time on IRC and are extremely technical (there's only about 12
of them!). They're a bit more expensive but they give you IP6 right now
and lots of good latency data. Generally good guys.
