Pros: Very good customer service. I shopped around for sometime though. Reccomended it to no techy's (im one) and they too have nothing but good reports

Cons: Tech support not open outside business hours though once set up you shouldnt really need it.

Comments: Had it for 2 months. Never had down time or anything like that.
Very fast speeds.
Uploads and downloads are not added together to calculate consumption. They use the higher of the two.
Very good value for money.
I have three friends using them also, though not discussed, never heard any complaints.

Pros: It works

Cons: Long activation wait, dynamic IP, poor support.

Comments: Overall, pretty happy (now!).
One big gripe was the length of time to activate my account (4 weeks+) when they said most connections are up within 2 weeks AT THE MOST!!!
Very poor feedback as to why they were taking so long, some emails I sent them were never answered, or if they were it was often a week later. If you just want to find an ISP with good support and you don't want to do some of the dirty work yourself (I like learnig about ADSL, but its not everyone's cup of tea) I would strongly suggest not going for this ISP.
Otherwise, it has been working OK and advertised speeds have been achieved.
