Yep, screw BT and the horse they rode in on. I'm in the process of switching to a new ISP right now. The new ISP still uses BT wholesale at the exchange, but at least I wont have to deal with BT's God aweful call centres anymore.

I'm with idnet and they don't traffic shape what so ever but they do have download limits which are 40gb peak and 140gb off peak,they also don't count uploads so you can upload what you want.I pay£35 per month but I also get priority at the exchange,i get 51ms pings all day and am synced at 3488kbps on a 63.5db line

FEC Events are errors corrected by interleaving. You might have a problem if you ask for interleaving to be turned off. The connection uptime isn't particularly great. What's the average uptime? Does it re-sync often?
