[access-uk] Re: more broadband servers?

I suppose the 12 month contract is a negative, and you have to consider the 
lack of migration code.  One little extra is that, every month, they send me 
an email for a tiscali reward shop.  This has CD's DVD's, software and 
gadgets for the price of P&P, although they are not top titles.  Still, 
there's some real bargains on there.

Barry, thanks for the comments about Tiscali. They are one of the servers
i'm considering, and the Tiscali customer service people were very helpful
when i called them.
So far, Tiscali are ahead in my opinion.
