I've been with Be for a while too, they're definitely recommended here,
they also offer a static IP as a free of charge option. If you're an O2
customer you may want to check out their broadband as they own BeThere
so provide the same service, but offer discounts to O2 customers.
Personally I'm sticking with BeThere just in case I change mobile
networks, and that O2 charge =A35/month for a static IP which seems a bit
excessive to me!
