Primus broadband


[link to this post]
 
I'm interested in the Primus broadband/phone bundle offering of 4.99/momth + line rental, but I'm curious about their statement that no MAC is needed. I already have BB with another ISP (Madasafish) How does that work? My exchange is Dyce, Aberdeen

MaxDSL - goes as fast as it can and doesn't read the line checker first.

If it's for BB and line rental it could be full LLU, so no MAC required.

here's the deal......

I looked my exchange up on samknows, and they've only recently put in TalkTalk LLU. Not going anywhere near them, so just puzzled about Primus. I thought ISP's wouldn't put their kit in exchanges till they had plenty of potential customers for LLU?

Primus use the same equipment.

Talk Talk likely upgraded the exchange as they had enough users already on it via BT WLR/IPstream to make it worthwhile and save them (TT) a bit of money per connection that they convert whilst at the same time offering their users an increase in speed for very little/no extra monthly fee.

Primus will be buying a product from the wholesale arm of Carphone Warehouse called Opal.

Probably did similar in the days when Tiscali existed.

If no MAC needed then it is FULL LLU, and ties you into their broadband and phone very neatly. Always worth checking the exact costs of things like calls to mobiles, 0845, 0844, 0870 etc

OPAL which is part of carphone warehouse, aka same as TalkTalk.

Quality of Service may vary compared to TalkTalk, i.e. could be worse, could be better. Depends on what QoS Primus buy, same as the old Tiscali deals, pay peanuts and get peanuts.
