Victory against the forces of inertia.
So I've swapped my ISP (venerable, reliable Zen) for one that's £7 a month (that's £84/yr!) cheaper - Be Unlimited. This means that on Monday my clunky 512Mbit connection gets replaced with one that will be somewhere in the region of 15-20 Mbit. (I've checked my attenuation figures, and they're about 15dB, which is good, but not great.) I feel like a child on Christmas morning, waiting for the shiny shiny present.

Sadly I lose separate static IPs and will have to go back to dreaded NAT, but on the whole, it seems like a worthwhile trade off. I especially like the paying less bit.

Still, I hope Be's reliability and customer service aren't much worse than Zen's.

Haven't stopped being peeved about paying BT £120 a year for phone service principally so I can get broadband.

My experiences with Be - very nearly a year now - have been pretty good so far; the one time there was an unscheduled outage, they sent a text to my mobile to apologise, followed a couple of hours later by a second one to say that everything had been fixed. (I wasn't at home at the time, so the outage didn't actually affect me, but I was impressed by the fact that someone had thought about letting customers know.)

I'm with you on the phoneline thing, though.
