That's expensive, considering the equiv. DSL offering is at 80
pounds p/m and is 512kb/256kb instead of 512/159.  Where in the
country are you?  Is there no DSL offering you can take up?  There's
a rate adaptive version available now that can go further so it's
worth re-checking if you've not done so for a few months.
