Re: Holy CRAP I didn't know Dubya had a TARDIS...

No TARDIS needed

"that's been something of a safe haven"

Is that as opposed to an unsafe haven ?

Hundreds for chop as Tiscali launches Pipex jobs purge

Richard Jennings

Yep, Nildram are excellent

Not the cheapest, but don't need to call support very often (once a year, max)

and performance is very good. Reasonable bandwidth limts (50 Gb per month between 8AM and midnight, unrestricted outside those hours) and good data rates (4 - 5 mbits, 2 miles from the exchange)

Hopefully, Tiscali don't screw Nildram up
