Unfortunately many SME's will be upgrading from ISDN... and then you have less
choice. ESAT for instance won't touch the conversion of ISDN to ADSL because
it involves removing the ISDN box.... so, for the first year at least, I am
probably stuck with Eircom. If anyone knows different then please let me know
before I sign the next year of my life away to Eircom.

If we're actually being pedantic, it is in fact ethernet.
On the general DSL thing - my advice in general with regard to
getting DSL from Eircom is don't - especially if you're an
SME. The quality of what they will tell you is suspect to
say the least (most businesses for example don't use Windows or
MAC boxes to hook up their DSL link but a router jobbie).
Using the smaller companies (eg Netsource, Digiweb) is better for you
in terms of both customer service and extending the choice in the market.
