Wesley said it was £150 for the modem + £175 for installation in the North,
so that's actually a bit cheaper here. But the installation hurts,
especially since you can be absolutely guaranteed that installation means
that the man comes out and turns the box on, and then configures your 'doze
PC to gateway through the modem. You may bet your bottom euro (for what
that's worth) that if you mention Linux you'll either be told "do it
yourself" or "it doesn't work".

£40 a month in the North, so again, a little cheaper here.
BYW I heard a horror story about BT's ADSL service - apparently the box is
connected to your PC by USB - I don't imagine your chances of finding a
driver for Linux for that are high. I believe some of you have participated
in ADSL trials - what's the connection to the ADSL box ?
