I've been running off Goldweb's ADSL service since it started and after
I got the login stuff squared away, I've had no problems whatsoever ....
well, the very occasional line drop, but my firewall box restarts
straight away, and who knows where/why line drops occur.

And Goldweb is essentially a Linux shop from my point of view.
