LLU or 21CN


[link to this post]
 
Hi

I've just thought that i could actually sign up to 21CN through a reseller rather than have to take LLU from a company.

I guess 21CN from BT will be traffic managed, but from other smaller companies i imagine it will be set by them?

Are there any reseller companies you can recommend for 21CN over LLU or would it be best to just go with Sky paritial LLU unlimited?

Exchange is Bishop Auckland

Orange has got rid of its LLU and now sells BTw White Label 21CN WBC in 21CN exchanges. It is supposed to be Unlimited usage with no FUP.

Speeds are excellent and it's good value-for-money. Phone support may leave something to be desired.

Hi

So p2p is not throttled any time of day? Do you mean phone technical support or the phone line they provide if they provide one?

So you mean phoning them for support. What is the email support like then?
Do you have your phone line through Orange also? Do you know if its on BT network still or like how they used to with Full LLU? Also is there a minimum contract period?

I don't have my phone with Orange, but they still do BT WLR lines. They are not LLU of any flavour; as I said earlier they sell BT WBC.

Hi, I’ve been with Orange fourteen months for broadband and landline phone. I joined on their 20Meg LLU broadband service, which Orange closed down in preference for 21CN WBC 20Meg and I was transferred over. I find it great the transfer went smoothly and I’ve no complaints of the service.

In addition, if you have your mobile phone on monthly contract with Orange you get £5 per month off the broadband price.

Answers to your questions…

1. So you mean phoning them for support. I had no problems with them when I phoned the service centre in Newcastle.

2. What is the email support like then? Don’t know, never had to use support for email it’s always very reliable.

3. Do you have your phone line through Orange? – Yes! I pay them £11.50 per month line rental. The service is the same as being with BT, you get the same telephone answering service and caller display.

4. Do you know if it is on BT network? Yes, the broadband and landline phone service is on the BT network.

5. The minimum contract period for broadband is 18 months.

Orange WBC 20 Meg. Sync 11864 kbps Downstream, 1189 kbps Upstream.
