Digital connection, gives you a half decent line i...

Running costs.

I have recently taken installation of BT's Homehighway product, after being initially disappointed with a new standard analogue line installation at my new property. At my previous address I was privileged enough to have an NTL cable modem – I took their base 128k package, which was great for me...
