Gena, I think I understand what the prices mean in your message,
(below) but they are rather mucked up by the equals sign intrusion and
some numbers which shouldn't be there.

Can I suggest that until this peculiar problem is sorted that we
resort to spelling out prices to avoid such unclearness?

Hi

Just to throw more confusion into the pot.  I wouldn't have thought it
=3D
is such a big issue.  Even Bulldog provide us with a service, it is BT
=3D
that had to provide the line up to the house.  So if we were to take
up =3D
with BT, they'd come and inspect or install a new line within 7 days,
=3D
but as we were contractually obliged to continue with Bulldog when we
=3D
moved here, we had to wait 28 days.  I'd go with what was NTL now
Virgin =3D
if I could simply because the infrastructure is new and more capable
of =3D
taking data transmissions.  ADSL services are just tacking on an old =3D
flaky network that was never designed for that purpose.  But alas, we
=3D
all don't have the choice.  There's a skill in choosing an Internet =3D
Service Provider and I've made some blunders.  BT's support is better
=3D
but they charge more.  You have to ask how critical is the support and
=3D
how critical is the finance.  Take a second line here, for example, =3D
Bulldog will fit one for =3DA399.99 and will take up to 28 days as they
=3D
have to pass the request on to BT to undertake the work.  For the same
=3D
service direct from BT and cut out the middle man it's =3DA3124.99.
Then =3D
the subsequent line rental from BT, if paid by Direct Debit, is
=3DA311.00 =3D
a month, whereas, Bulldog charge =3DA310.50 a month.  There's also other
=3D
differences relating to the duration of the contract etc..  And this =3D
just the phone line to carry the ADSL service.

HTH
