having a leased line sounds like an overkill, any xDSL sounds better
than that.
I remember having a ISDN line from easynet at one point, and it was very
very expensive compared to the adsl lines.

Hm, we've been with Plus.NET provide static IPs even for residential services,
Pipex will give you about /29 Network very cheap as well - HomeOffice service, Nildram is good too.

Or at end you can get a 2-3-4 adsl lines and aggregate them.

hope that helps,
