I use Eclipse <http://www.eclipse.net.uk/> for home and business.  Just
about to migrate to their ADSL + phone service so we'll see :-)  Service
has been very reliable though the customer support stinks - it was OK
until they were bought out by Kingston :-(  The technical support has
been good - though I haven't needed that for over two years.  I have a
fixed IP address on my home service and 6 useable (really 5 because 1 is
used by the SpeedTouch modem) fixed IP addresses with the business pack.
Costs £32 /month but will be going down in price when I upgrade to their
combined package.  I think the home connection is £20/month.  All the
fixed addresses resolve in reverse DNS.  Overall I'm very happy with the

Wouldn't touch NTBloodyHell with a barge pole.
