After some humming and hawing, finally decided to take up the latest offer from Pipex. Order just submitted. Will keep you posted on developments.

I feel sure you will be satisfied with Pipex ADSL, as I am.

They did have problems with telephone support during the first 6 months or so of last year, but happily all that is resolved. In fact, one can see their current support status on line here:

should be up and running today?
been following your quest so would like to know what you think as i 2 minds between plus net and pipex - grateful for you info on pipex experience!

Should be tomorrow. Watch this space.

Up and running and so far with no major problems.Installation was very straight forward and after sorting out a minor glitch in the accounts settings, everything seems to be running ok. Connection is very quick and there is very little waiting for pages to load when surfing. So far i'm very impressed and am now wondering why i took so long to take the plunge.Will leave this open a bit longer to report any problems should they occur.
