I'm with Fasthosts - a thoroughly professional specialist IT company.
At ?29 a month, the broadband service is a bit expensive, perhaps; but
it's fast and reliable.
Their 365/24/7 tech support - covering more or less any problem you
might have with your network, whether it's broadband-related or not - is
excellent. (Not that I've had much need to use it - but when I have,
the guys have been brilliant.)
I've had very few outages in three years, and most were due to BT.
(Fasthosts' recently had a break-in to their servers - very embarrassing
for the country's largest web hosting service; but they dealt with it
fast, honestly, and openly, contacting customers directly with detailed
advice and information.)
I've thought about moving to a cheaper ISP; but the rock-solid
reliability of the Fasthosts service compared with what I hear of
cheaper ISPs has kept me with them.
