I've been a Phone Co-op customer for over a year and have my landline and broadband (ADSL2) service with them. I have found them to be excellent - UK based CS always very helpful, although to be honest I've only ever had to call them to add extras such as u/l downloads, reduction in NM and addition of static IP address - no reliability or other issues at all. They run on the TT network from my unbundled exchange and speeds are always excellent. Probably not as cheap as TT direct but perhaps without the hassle and supporting a Cooperative. They are affiliated to, although independent of the Cooperative group. Hope this helps.

I have my mobile with Phone Co-op. It is independent, not part or a sub-brand of EE. It is an MVNO that bulk buy telecommunications services from, for example, EE and sell the service to end customers. It started up to help third sector organisations to purchase collectively and get cheaper wholesale prices http://www.thephone.coop/about-us/who-we-are/history/
