Should be OK really. Depends on what speed you go for. My 512 connection just about copes, but Tiscali have introduced caps on most of the services now. Tho' as I'm an existing customer I managed to avoid them...
I'd recommend them all day long.
Will the fact I'm literally just 100 meters away from the exchange give me a better ping than the average Tiscali customer?

Tiscali's speed monitoring software says mine connects at 2.2MPS, but I dont get that speed.
thats what maybe changed my ping a little
