I run a village community broadband outdoor wifi system which feeds 8 houses, I have always used Zen Office for the incoming feed because of the Traffic Prioritisation.
Recently I have noticed the evening speeds are running very slow, below are yesterdays results, the evening ones are relatively good, sometimes they go as low as 2.5Mbps on the HTTP test.The reading were taken with the village system disconnected and my computer wired to the router.
I am assuming this is caused by exchange congestion, it is an exchange only line from the next village MYBBY.
A user who has recently changed from our system to BT because of the speed problem is getting a virtually constant 6.0 Mbps so presumably Bt has its own route through the exchange.
So my question is am I wasting money paying for Traffic Prioritisation? Or could I move to the Zen Pro, considerable cheaper but no TP, without any noticeable effect. I have rung Zen support on a couple of occasions but not got any definitive answer.
Hopes this all makes sense and thanks for any help.
