My taking on TeleGlobe is that they are yet an other provider about to
go bankrupt, and thus sell their service very cheap, which works fine
as long as they have capacity, but when that runs out, they probably
doesn't have the funding to upgrade their network.

So my personal advise: Use it as long as the quality is good enough,
when that drops go shop elsewhere, but be prepared to pay more ...
