Many thanks everyone for your help and your reasoning. Can I ask a few more questions related to it...
Is the cease date the same for the whole of the UK ?
If not, have any cease dates already occurred ? (I'm wondering how ADSL 24 cope with customers on Datastream when it's been withdrawn)
Does it require a BT visit to an exchange to move someone from Datastream to IPstream ?
I am concerned that ADSL 24 Customer Services didn't know any of this and it makes me concerned for my ADSL once the cease date for Datastream arrives. I really am considering moving provider based on this news now.
