Hello folks.

I would really like some recommendations for broadband ISPs in the UK. how much should I be concerned with anti-virus protection when it comes to this?
Should I use a dedicated mac isp or not? They seem more expensive. I also don't need a massive download limit.

Any tips would be much appeciated.

I use Eclipse and over the years in terms of consistency, they have been pretty good.
In my opinion their standards have dipped a bit recently, but they seem to be making an effort to rectify the problem now so I can't really complain too much
