I, too, have been using Demon that long and have always been an advocate
of theirs. Recently, however, I've been seriously considering moving
(probably to Zen). My Demon ADSL connection quite regularly
(particularly of a Sunday evening) disconnects and needs manual
intervention (power-cycle the router) to bring it back up. Plus,
although Demon have lowered the price on may of their products for new
customers, I remain at their old rates which, frankly, are verging on
the extortionate these days.
