Best 2MB Broadband ISP?

I'm setting up a new office and am looking for a decent 2MB ADSL supplier. The criteria is...

* No Telefonica (so no Central Point)
* No download limit (so no Nildram)
* Not obscenely priced (like Pipex's £103 per month!)

Current frontrunner appears to be Bulldog's BizTime2000 at £69.99 per month (their AllTime2000 package doesn't extend to my exchange).

Any other potential suppliers? Please provide links!

Using Bulldog Primetime 2000 at home - very nice, great download speeds and very reliable.

Always heard very good things about Bulldog and was going to change from BT until they were taken over by NTL. That should be the kiss of death.

I can vouch that FireflyUK are good but I think telefonica are one of their transit providers so that will put them out of the running for the OP.

Cable & Wireless bought Bullog last week.

£29.99 for a 2Mb link (outside 8am-6pm mon-fri) is pretty good... that's when I'm home!

I use Plusnet 1mb and it's ace. Customer service has been top notch and I haven't lost connection since I signed up back in October. Gonna upgrade to 2mb this week.
