Default Telewest BB - any good?

As per subject.
Just moved home and BT can't swap the existing Telewest line over to
BT until the 9th (damn them), so I'm contemplating keeping the line so
I can get Telewest phone/BB up and running quickly.
I would appreciate some real-life opinions on their service, and
technical info regarding hardware requirements, IP allocation, ports
blocked or not, etc.

I have found them to be really reliable here in the Black Country. It
is fast and, up until this week, I have had 14 months continuous up
time. It was down on Monday afternoon, but back on later.

The mail service is dodgy - refusing to connect - so I use yahoo for

News server was poor when I tried it - but I use individual.net

I have been impressed with the availability and speed of the service

Hardware - they provide the cable modem. CM has USB or ethernet
connection to a PC (or router). IP address is assigned using DHCP, but
in practise mine has stayed the same for the past year.

Not aware of any ports being blocked.
