P2P limitations on Infinity


[link to this post]
 
Infinity meant to be coming to my street soon. I use VPN a lot to backup files to and from another location, does this count as P2P?

I think Infinity may not work for me as I need a fixed IP address, is there an option or should I be looking for A N Other ISP?

Thanks!

IDNet, and I think Zen, don't count uploads towards their allowances.

You can get a fixed IP address on BT Business.

I believe, If your using a VPN, they won't have any idea what your doing.

only the total MB uploaded and downloaded.

If you sign with BT business, can they not offer you a fixed ip address with that?

(extra £5 a month for unlimited data, on business, i think)

Thanks.

I'd be looking to replace my Be unlimited connection (they don't have plans to offer fibre and are not as good as they used to be). Who else offer fixed IPs? I can't see a reason to pay BT more for the same! We're moving a lot of video for backup so Be's genuine unlimited is perfect. Who's next best?!

Thanks

IDNet, Zen, ADSL24. No doubt many others.

Might be worth checking with the ISP if they count traffic between their connections from the allowance?

I backup between two sites using FTTC and that usage is not taken from the monthly allowance.
