    Hooray, someone offering a reasonable speed for an almost reasonable price at last. A nice kick in the arse for other providers to follow suit I say :D

    Unfortunately it's not available in all area's, however they do have a pre-register page to rack up interest and hopefully get your area enabled. :)

    Yesf... Hooray... I can't get it coz I'm more than 2km away from the blimmin' exchange. :(
    £39.99 is a really good price for a connection like that. Expect existing service charges to come down in the near future. :)

    Especially since its only £29.99 for 512 access from BT ulimited, £19.99 if you don't mind a download cap.

    I think you can even get ASDL for £29.99 that's 1Mbit.

    Yup, considering most (all but about two or three) DSL ISP's use BT's hardware and connectivity anyway, and offer it at a lower price too. :)

    I agree with you on that... £31 for a connection that's a little more than dial-up. :p
    Been thinking of upgrading my Pipex 500 (£23.44) to a 1000 connection (£28.99). Don't think it's worth upgrading at the moment though since faster connections are being introduced more quickly than ever before. Just waiting for 2 & 4mb connections to become mainstream, then the prices will tumble. :)
