I recommend Zen (I assume you meant them, not Xen?) and have used them 
for a couple of years with
no real problem. Helpline is pretty good and I have no complaints. Cost 
may be greater than others but
you only get what you pay for.

Any speed issues are not really related to the ISP but related to how 
far you are away from the BT

I think that where people get frustrated is the way that many ISPs quote 
'up-to 8Mbps'  when in fact
at peak periods it can be as low as 160Kbps for some people!
