go4adsl.net

One of my friends now uses the above as ISP. I have never heard of it before and as he is even more limited than I in hos knowedge I would like to know if it is "safe". Can anyone tell anything about it; a web search reveals almost nothing.
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: go4adsl.net

I can't find anything about them
Do you have a web address?  I'd automatically be concerned that I can't initially find out any information about them.

I wouldn't go to an ISP that I can't find any information about on the web.

Re: go4adsl.net

That's not exactly weird. AOL, NTL and quite a number of other providers are famed for routing data via the US pointlessly.

Re: go4adsl.net

I'd echo others thoughts on the subject.
Any reason why they want this specific ISP rather than Plusnet?

Re: go4adsl.net

Not easy to describe, but suffice it to say, it has to do with their beliefs, an ISP that resonated with them ceasing, and them wanting a domain for continuity if they had to change ISP again. From what they told me I am not so un-confident about the new ISP as before. Let's hope that continues.
