      What telephone exchange are you on?
      I'm on the Emsworth exchange. Is there a way to check who has unbundled the exchange - the only thing is that as we just moved here I had to take a new BT line so I am locked into their telephone service for 12 months. A lot of broadband deals seem to be a bit cheaper when including the telephone service as well.

      You have a choice of 4 unbundled suppliers, who do not use BT's service. Any of these will give you a cheaper and very likely a better service than you have on Connect. O2 for instance, do up to 8Mb unlimited for 12.50 less if you use their mobile. Their equivalent to Sky's Connect is even dearer though.

      Personally, I wouldn't join Tiscali if they paid me

      O2 on the other hand - you'll be hard put to find much negative criticism of them anywhere - including from me

      Did I read somewhere that CPW(TalkTalk) were in the market for Tiscali which would make them UK's largest ISP?
