Yea, getting services 'unmanaged' is usually the fist thing to do for a responsive network, at least here. If they manage it then you are subject to their - the management companies - flimsy promises, sliding timescales and nooses or red tape. The MoE here is trying to make their own little walled garden which will force management onto its subscribers who will have to subscribe to get to the content. My main issue is that usually managed services, in all of my experience are slow, rubbish, restrictive and expensive while providing very little benefit to anyone who can identify and use a patch lead all by themselves.

management = mediocrity at best as it is generally a lowest common denominator system.

It's worth noting that with at least 2 providers I know (M247, Talk Straight) you get full management of your domain. The respective companies will be more than happy to help with changes that need making but obviously the option is there.
Naturally when making any changes a full changelog should be kept and config backups also kept to hand and updated. But that's common sense.

Yup, entirely. Lovely day in the office, it was unusually quiet and very productive!

What are you using to filter your new connection, just out of interest?

I'm not sure if that can be done or not. Dan is in Loughborough and then Northamptonshire on Friday so I'll get one of my other techs to look into it for you.
Any more feedback is greatly appreciated
