Anyone recommend a good bandwidth provider? In Cork?
My phone bill is slowly catching up on what it would cost for always-on access,
and god only knows when DSL is going to come online, so I think it's time to
think about a leased line. MCI Worldcom* are quoting me but I'd like to shop
around a little. Quality of service and customer support are important - I don't
mind paying a few quid extra for a line that is *really* always-on, and customer
support that actually answer their phones (and don't fob you off when they do).

BTW, I know topics like this invariably turn into flamefests - reply off-list if
necessary. Just don't Reply To All. :)
Thanks in advance,
* Who predicted - predictably - that it's highly unlikely that DSL will come
online on the predicted launch dates of September/October. Funny, he mentioned
DSL, ADSL, but neglected vDSL altogether. That's what Genesis say they'll be
using isn't it?
