I'm a UK expat returned to the UK after many years tending racks abroad.
I've seen in a few previous posts the phrase "buying LT2P" or "reselling to oneself" mentioned.
My question is, as a reasonably net-geek unfamiliar with the UK's xDSL marketplace how does this happen/what do we need/is it expensive? and so on.
Not technically, but physically/practically. Cisco-ese/OpenBSD/FreeBSD/GnuLinux spoken, so the tech aspects are no problem, but my Google-fu has returned zilch on WHO to approach and WHAT to ask for.
There must be a special code-word for it?
Context: 5 or 6 ADSL1/2+ locations, very infrequently staffed (1 week out of 4 usually), but heavily used (small disk images for recovery, rsync tranfers, etc etc) when they are. Two sites will need Debain and OpenBSD mirrors, you get the idea.
We also have 10 or 15 customers that might "jump in" to make the numbers up. Basically, we "manage" their lines anyways right now with our own CPE on other ISPs wires-only, we otherwise just do sysadmin work as a "complete" package for them.
We're looking primarily for stability and manageability, though I really don't know what's involved at all.
...And from the horror stories in this forums already , nothing from or passing through the likes of TalkTalk please.
