It hardly seems worth recommending IC24 to anyone if it takes so long to connect!!! One hour is a bit excessive and I'd much rather pay the 10 quid a month for BT! That's £2.50 a week - worth every penny if it gets you connected first time!
And if they disconnect you after one hour - that's just stupid. Is there anything good about it???
I don't understand why you're recommending it.
