I've been with Demon ever since I've had home internet connection
(which must be eleven or twelve years). I wasn't part of the original
"tenner a month" club, but I can't have missed it by much. And I _did_
pay a tenner a month (plus VAT) for a long time. I've been with them
through dial-up, ISDN and now ADSL (which they've recently upgraded to
a supposed 8Mb).
In all that time I've had about three strange outages and none of them
have lasted more than 24 hours. I'm not saying that I don't believe
these people who complain about Demon's service, I'm just adding a
datapoint as a happy customer for some considerable length of time.
I suspect I should probably shop around more tho' :-)
