2 weeks ago they lost BOTH ADSL 2+ connections (each has fixed IP, one used for staff browsing, other VoIP to staff in Italy and UK). This was a fault at exchange affecting all BT-based ISPs for 5/6 hours.
Would like FTTC but not offered.
HQ is 300m or less to Chester North exchange, but no option to connect there, it seems...
Would like suggestions for ways to always have one connection working...
If you run a business, have a second ISP and backup web hosting...
