something that maybe relevant from the information I copied above. Or I
chose a non proportional font and the above gets 'messed up'
I have checked the telephone number on bt.com/broadband and received this:
"For Telephone Number *edited*
Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial test on your line
indicates that your line should be able to have an ADSL broadband
service that provides a line rate up to 2Mbps.
Our test also indicates that your line should be able to support a
potential ADSL Max broadband line rate of 6.5Mbps up to 8Mbps.
The actual ADSL Max line rate supportable will be determined during the
first 10 days of use, after which time the highest stable rate possible
will be set.
If you decide to place an order, a further test will be performed to
confirm if your line is suitable for the service you wish to purchase.
Thank you for your interest.
Note: Our records indicate that a line-sharing device is connected to
your line. This is the reason that the checker has returned this
marginal result and may mean that Broadband could not be delivered on
this line. Further investigations would be necessary as part of the
ordering process to confirm whether or not you could receive Broadband
service at this address. This could result in a delay to the provision
of broadband at this address."

The criteria I went with was that it was 'inexpensive' as 'inexpensive'
is always good. I imagine I can always talk through any concerns about
What I need for my father is reliability, good level of support -
preferably UK based or Irish at a push. The ability for me to VNC into
his computer to sort any problems out. Also, capping for extensive
usage, I don't imagine he's going to be downloading lots of content, but
as his main usage will be uploading relatively large files (2MB to max
10MB) every other day via email. I obviously don't want the isp to limit
(cap) his upload potential.
The ISP's I would appreciate opinions on are these:
ADSLGuide has this:
which isn't the most informative of information.
Thank you for any information you can offer.
