We were with O2 but got very fed up with the slooow download speed especially at 'busy' times - especially when the kiddies get home from school.
The technical help we received from them was almost non-existant in fact they stated on several occasions that as we were using a wired network they weren't obliged to give us any assistance.
So . . . we took the plunge and as soon as BT Infinity became available on our local exchange we went for it - 24 - 35 Meg download speed depending as much as anything the site you are looking at. Fantastic for YouTube in hidef - less than 5 minutes for a Gigabyte!
We were with BT about ten years ago and swore we would never go back to them but for the last nine months they have been faultless - that is until some pikey strips out the fibre optic cable from the exchange thinking it was copper! But they got it back working again within 24 hours.

You're lucky to have such a variety of IP's.
Here in Belgium I think there's only 3 or maybe 4 providers,and the price is a lot more too.
We were with Skynet from the word go,but changed to Telenet when they came up with a package for Broadband,land-line and digital television,we pay around €72 a month!!!!
I wouldn't mind,but we hardly ever watch Belgian tv,my missus (who is Flemish) prefers British tv which we get via satellite on Freesat.
As far as internet goes,it's usually pretty fast,but keeps dropping the signal.When I complain to Telenet,they do a remote test and say everythings fine,they did send a guy round just before xmas to test the connection and he found there was a bad connection in the street.Within an hour they were digging up the street to repair the cable,and after three hours they'd fixed it.
I think a lot of the problems we have is because the internet is routed through our 220v cables and then to the router.

I heard BT will have a 300meg next year. Is BT at the moment through telephone wires or is it cable?
