If you cant get LLU, I would recommend someone like web tapestry (which 
was recommended to me by SLUG before)

They use enta's network but seem to take a L2TP feed which isn't 
affected by the bandwidth issues at enta of late.

I would recommend UKonline who I am actually with these days, but they 
don't seem to be taking on new customers.

if you have SKY TV then SKY BB might be worth a look as it uses the 
easynet network.
