Hi gamesaregood I have not had any experience of BT BB as I am with Pipex(xtreme) which i find are excellent. I have been with them for 5 months now and have not had any problems at all, connects first time and have an average speed 460 -480kbps.
As for a modem/router..i bought this oneclick here I know it's a 4 port,but, you don't mention how many pc's you want to connect.
May be few problems with BT (Forums show lots but only because they have more subscribers etc). For cheapest monthly connections and set up at the moment click on the banner at click here select the connection option and starter pack you want and away you go. Plus Net are constantly among the top five fastest connection speed tests with ADSL Guide, and best after service ratings.

All the best for your future fast lane experience TL
