Recommended LLU Alternatives


[link to this post]
 
Plusnet, Adsl24 and Xilonet all sound promising - any advice, shared experience and input would be much appreciated ( unfortunately I live in kensington and Chelsea in London where fibre is no-go due to BT and Council falling out and Virgin Cable has an appalling reputation).

Do you want a deal where broadband and line rental are included in the same package? If not I would certainly recommend a xilo/uno "Pro" partial LLU account - if available - and have the line rental with, for example, BT.

Plusnet Unlimited 21CN WBC, broadband only - if available - also has a good reputation...

I have a colleague who is using Vivaciti on a TalkTalk wholesale LLU line and he is very impressed. (Its not TalkTalk internet, just their LLU part).

When you say Plusnet doesn't provide BTwholesale LLU, What does it provide? Forgot my lack of knowledge here, But is that not a good thing?
I was a UKO customer who went to BE and am now in the same boat as many again so very interested in this thread and finding the next best provider. A friend also suggested PlusNet and at present they are looking like the ones to go for for me.

No just broadband - will keep phone line with BT.

Xilonet is sounding interesting.

What about Adsl24? I see they offer two LLU packages: one on a C&W network. Not clear as what the difference is.

Best if your check with the guys at xilo/uno - but I can certainly vouch for the "Pro" partial LLU (SMPF) products using the TTB (CPW) kit - my downstream SNRM was 6dB from the word go and the connection is rock solid smile

Edit: sorry I replied before your edit - don't know anything about Adsl24...

Don't want to be a rat leaving a sinking ship - but.....The thought of ending up with Sky fills me with dread.

Won't all the O2 wholesale network providers be gobbled up by Sky?
