yes, they bought up NTHell, and all the other bad ones, took them a while to get them going properly...

They were going pretty well up to a few years ago, then liberty global bought them...

when a MAJOR cable was cut by the local building site nearby my office, at least a low speed line was still maintained (BT would have calmly said 'no internet for a month', why my boss hates BT... )

a few months after that, though, we were exposed to the utterly clueless liberty global support staff.... :O
