The good thing is that it very rare to have to talk to their tech support - as the connection is fairly solid (which as I work from home is rather important), but on the few occasions I have spoken to support they have been brilliant (and actually understand Linux systems!).

I get about 3-4MB/s out in the middle of nowhere. I have a 100Gb/month limit which I have never managed to even get close to (but then I don't download too many films or music). For that, I pay £25/Month. You can get cheaper, but I am more interested in quality of service.
