Any vivaciti LLU users?


[link to this post]
 
Am very interested in speeds at peak times for the LLU service. My exchange (NEWN) has TT LLU service as well as Sky and was wondering if anyone can vouch for speeds from vivaciti. Currently with Zen on ADSLMax and peak times I am down to 2mb throughput. Have had a quick look at the Vivaciti forums and most speeds seem to be sync problems. Any comments?

Cheers Paul. Some mixed extreme reviews there. Hmmm, no recent ones.

Well, Vivaciti have always been polite and knowledgeable on forum posts I've read on the Internet and I get the impression they know what they're doing.

I just think I'm going to get on better than if I'd have gone directly to Talk Talk (the much shorter contract length, for a start).

I still haven't had my MAC code (exactly 3 days have passed now) - I think it'll be the week after next before everything's finished.

Did you consider Aquiss Paul apparently they do TT reselling too. Been looking in the Resellers forum.

No complaints here on broadband complete. Never noticed any slowdown apart from the managed protocols which were heavily restricted during peak times. Been a while since I have been on the managed service however so don't know what it is like now.

Now I'm on the unlimited/unmanaged option, runs full speed all the time.

There's been a few odd blips with latency which I have posted about but these were from the talk talk network rather than Vivaciti.

On Vivaciti Surfwise variety ie TT tails, broadband only.
No issues with peak time ( evenings and weekend ) speeds - little different from early morning.
Quick test now shows 17897 kbps download on a 21000 kbps sync.

Cheers for the feedback everyone. I'm very tempted now.

Thanks for that about Aquiss, Banger.

Wow - there's so many LLU resellers out there!

I think choosing my new provider's going to take all weekend!

And Xilo Paul but Vivaciti seems to be only one with online signup after trying the Aquiss and Xilo sites.
