Also a pity that it's getting pretty inaccurate about LLU these days, to
the extent that I sometimes wonder if someone isn't feeding them
deliberately bad info. Just because Sky _say_ they've LLU-enabled an
exchange, it doesn't mean they can actualy provide service there.
Similarly, just because AOL doesn't say anything at all, doesn't meant
they haven't already shifted a whole exchange to LLU.
Not that it matters too much. These days your choices are really:
* Zen for superb reliability & service, for which they charge a fair
price. Nildram too, but anecdotally they are not so good as they were.
* Be for ultimate speed with no silly policies for very little money
(and their service & support is passable, with decent enough
reliability, if nothing to write home about)
* A.N.Other IPStream reseller for when you can't afford Zen and/or are
out of Be's catchment areas.
ISTM that the FAQ entry could do with an update since an awful lot has
changed in the last 12-18 months, and I'd be happy to contribute some words.
