Thanks very much for all the input guys very much appreciated . So I guess the consensus is to choose Talk Talk . One last question ,what happens if I change ISPs later can I take my telephone number to the next carrier?

You can but it is a somewhat awkward process.  :-X

What you would have to do is to have a 'Return to Donor' performed for your telephone service. That means it would have to be reverted back to a BT Wholesale service providing retailer; BT Retail is just one of a number of such retailers.

There was a network problem over the weekend affecting large numbers of people in the south-east and some other areas, which caused intermittent unresponsiveness with some sites. It was fixed this morning.

There isn't a training period as such, but TT do operate their own DLM process. When your connection is first set up, the target SNR margin is 12 dB, and if this proves to be adequately stable, DLM will reduce the target margin to increase the speed. If you join the members' forum, you can speed up this process by requesting a manual profile change.
