    Lucky dip as far as ADSL goe's, every ISP has it's own problems,
    strangely even BT who own all the gear !

    The Tiscali package is bit of a weird one, its based on the BT IPStream 500 but download speed quoted as 5 times faster not ten times faster than Dialup !

    Go for what you can afford, prices and packages vary wildly.

    Unless your downloading 24/7 you should be ok.

    well i wouldent put it past bt to limit the ammount you can download , if you would like more info on what isp to take for your adsl connection then goto but dotn go with pipex as they sux, i use them and they are allways having problems.

    BT do have a limit on how much you download, Tiscalli suck and are very slow and have connection problems, Pipex are quite good I heard, but the one i am with for 512/256 adsl is Plusnet, they are excellent, fast (60kbps average for me!) and i never have any problems connecting. (not sure if they are available to scotland though) :p
