It is the only one that I could find so not really representative. However, BT owns all the BB lines (apart from cable) in the UK, so any 'supplier' is only renting space on these lines. The rental to BT, is quarterly and judging by fast24's prices they will struggle to make any money unless thay sign up a lot of people. The fact that they are not listed in the ADSL guide would indicate that they are very new or have few customers.

OTOH, if you want a 1mb connection I would give it a punt. You can only lose a month or so subscription.

Its worth considering bulldogdsl for their 2MB connection at £29 a month.I have been with them for approx 4 months and the connection has been very good with a only a couple of minor problems that were sorted out in hours

I'm using fast24 at the moment. 2mb £37.50. I've had not problems since I started using it in August. (expect a initial one caused by bt) Just installed a 1mb connection for my dad last week. Went in ok (I gave him my old wireless router so it was just a case of changing account details)
They have a short contract (3months) also there seems to be a half price startup offer at the moment...failing that I've not heard many complaints from friends using pipex or bulldog
