Oh, I see Demon Internet are going to be shut down.
I was never a customer, but they have been around since the early days and always had a good reputation.
@fitheach I think I briefly had a dialup account back in the days of Freeserve et al. They were really well regarded back then.
Freeserve? We were with them for a while. They had a two hour connection limit. You could reconnect immediately, but it did interrupt what you were doing. I added a script to wvdial which started a countdown timer once connected. At 1 hour 58 minutes it played a tone as a reminder the connection would soon be terminated. Those weren't the days. 😃
PS: I also remember a time around 1999/2000, where Freeserve had become consistently *more* reliable than Demon to the point I used it in preference until I got 512K DOCSIS via NTL around 2001 (I knew someone who worked there so got it earlier than others in the town).
I also had to discourage one of our kittens from disconnecting the telephone extension cables (when we got broadband he also disconnected LAN cables as an adult cat) 😸
