However, that doesn't apply to the OP, who is using British Telecom as
his ISP. My broadband connection goes through the local BT exchange and
copper after that, but BT has never been my ISP. I initially used Demon
as my ISP, switching to my current ISP (who subcontract broadband
connectivity to a third party, *not* BT) when I discovered that Demon
didn't offer a suitable package that included domain registration.

The OP can do exactly what I did.

Out of pure curiosity, what is there about the broadband set-up in your
locality that could prevent you from doing something similar? Are both
your broadband provider and your ISP monopolies?
