O2 or Sky LLU


[link to this post]
 
Hi

I'm moving house and going to get rid of Vivaciti/opal Full LLU. I am just getting phone probably from BT or Post Office and get Partial LLU for broadband.

My exchange will have AOL, O2, BE, Orange, Talktalk, Tiscali and Tiscali TV.

Which is better out of O2 and Sky LLU, i would be looking at sky unlimited and o2 all rounder package.

I download torrents/p2p.

Sky would be better for torrents

o2 throttles them from midday till midnight

if i remember right

also skys unlimited while the all rounder has a FUP of 100GB.

O2 is hevily throttled for p2p applications, therefore i would say Sky would be the better choice

BT Infinity
~200m from NILDW PCP21
40000/10000 Sync

The Traffic Management is 24/7.. Restricted speeds are below:

Streaming = 8 meg

Peer to Peer Off Peak = 0.25 meg

Peer to Peer Peak = 0.1 meg

o2 really throttles that much and only quarter meg even off peak that is shocking!

Looks like sky it is.

I'm presuming I'm correct in thinking avoid AOL, Orange, Tiscali and talktalk? Well i don't want talktalk for being full LLU.

What are your views on Be? They are a lot more expensive though, but heard good things.

Orange is no longer LLU, it is a BT Wholesale White label service like the Post Office and Vodaphone.

Tiscali TV is a strange one - does it still exist?

Tiscali LLU does not. It is now part of TalkTalk.

IIRC vivaciti can in now offer shared LLU on Opal, (TalkTalk Business Wholesale).

Having said all that, I too would suggest the Sky Unlimited. But if that is fully utilised already, do not go to Sky Connect, which is the non LLU product. That is like O2 Access but worse.

There is always the possibility of Be of course. That is still unlimited and no traffic management.

Whatever you do, check for cashback for the supplier on Quidco or Topcashback!

You say O2 or Sky LLU but then don't mention Sky in the LLU list. Could you confirm that Sky LLU is an option?
