Their bandwidth charges are much cheaper outside normal daytime hours.
They price in terms of bandwidth Units: 1 Unit is 2GB monthly download
during the day or 100GB monthly download on evenings or weekends.
(assuming a BT 21C line:  You
buy at least 2 pre-paid units per month per site, up to as many as you want.

A&A are penguin and daemon friendly, give you a static IPv4 allocation
(and as many IPv6 addresses as you can eat), are happy for you to run
your own servers from a residential broadband line, plus their support
are generally clueful.  I've been a happy customer for years.
