ISP advice


[link to this post]
 
Hi Guys

I have two Fibre connections one with TT and one with BT so I was thinking of getting rid of one of these lines and going with a new ISP was looking at the likes of AAISP 'Zen so apart from the customer service and support how would I benefit from changing ISP ? . what im looking for is no slow downs better ISP for gaming . the kids do a lot of watching Netflix gaming etc . what do you guys think any advice recommendations

You need to check how many GBs per month are used by Netflix, as AAISP could be quite expensive if the kids are using it a lot. Zen do have an unlimited option, but so far as I know AAISP don't. The 1TB per unit middle of the night tariff if it still exists doesn't sound like it would help you).

What's wrong with the two you have, and simply dropping one? We need to make sure any recommendation doesn't have the same problem.

Incidentally, what connection speeds are they? (As opposed to advertised product speeds).

Are both lines in the same building? There's quite a speed difference between the two. If they were on the same cabinet I'd expect them to be very similar.

BT has recently rolled out something called G.INP across most, if not all, of its network. This addressess crosstalk issues and improves performance - very considerably in some cases. Not all hardware iis compatible. Yours may not be. If you say what it is, someone may be able to tell you.

That sounds weird. Are the lines running totally separately, or have you got some kind of load-balancing setup as well?

Do Ethernet-connected devices slow down when the wireless ones do? I suspect the problem may be the wireless not the connections themselves.
