It was 3 years ago that I looked I suppose.
Then IOL/postgem wasn't even linked to TE's network
so to connect they would had had to actually dig a trench
from their nearest POP to us. I swear, this is what they
told me. Then I called 6 months later and after getting
the usual ISD what? I was transferred to Postgem who
had finally connected to TE's network. The charge for
ISDN dialup was £500 a year or something and we had to
do some serious messing around with the ISDN TAs etc.
to get things to work. For e.g. we had serious problems
logging in and after 2 weeks of pestering them they
said Oops we forgot to add your a/c on the ISDN system !
