Pretty much.  It routes most things over ntl, but seems to be smart enough
to recognise other access codes (eg. 1878 for OneTel) and get out of the
way if you use one.  Should you not trust the adapter, you can just put
1263 in front of any number you want to route over ntl.

Let me know if you need any more info.  The uk.telecom and
alt.internet.providers.uk.* newsgroups are also good places to look.
