Yes, we use their 4MB Breeze service. When it's up it's excellent, no
sign of contention most of the time and the latency is pretty low (~5ms
to Irish sites, ~15-20ms to the UK and so on). It has had a couple of
major outages (multiple hours, one > 24 hours) and a small number of
minor ones (usually fixed by power-cycling the antenna).
Support is... OK. The longest outage we had was eventually diagnosed by
me, but they're usually good about figuring it out themselves. When the
phone monkeys* do bump issues to the guys who can actually fix things
the resolution is usually pretty quick.

No idea. We didn't get one from them.
* Said in a totally non-pejorative sense having been both a phone monkey
and a phone monkey herder myself. :-)
