Advantages: no cutoff time, over 30 servers to dial
Disadvantages: not the fastest ISP
I subscribed to cable internet due to the surf unlimited promotion offer and although at first performance was unacceptable and engaged tones were frequent, their performance is slowly on the up.
With a choice of over 30 dial up numbers if a server is down or engaged you can simply choose another one to dial and even though they may be in different locations telewest do not charge you for the call (other than manchester which is a telewest franchise and not part of the surf unlimited offer).
The service is one of the few ISP's which doesn't have a kickoff and allows you to be connected continuously, which is a real advantage for overnight downloads :)
