What's the performance like of BT infinity 2


[link to this post]
 
My cabinet is in the design phase according to or where and when site. How does infinity 2 performed from those that have it and can you get it separate from the phone line as I have already paid my line rental in advance with BTs line rental 12 month saver?

Performance wise, it's ok. You can get it stand-alone on the Solus offering but BT will give you a good discount if you add it to your phone package.

What sort of figures are we talking about as we hardly use the phone.

I think it would be best to have a look at bt.com to figure that out, or maybe call their sales team as they're always running offers which never seem to apply to the stand-alone packages.

You seem a little confused there. Or am I misunderstanding the problem?

Infinity is the BT FTTC fibre product, and customers normally have to take BT line rental to have it. AIUI if you take it just happens, although I was told two or three years ago that my ordinary line rental would start a new minimum term to match the Infinity. But I don't know about the "New Customer" deals. Maybe you would need to haggle. Who are you with at the moment?

Nearly every other ISP also offers FTTC, and only a few insist on you taking their line rental. So you can choose any of those with your BT Line Rental Saver.

The biggie is Plusnet. However you lose all their new customer deals as well. Smaller ones we see often here are Aquiss and uno.

Sky will apparently also take you on and let you keep the BT line, at least for the first year, or maybe they would offer to pay it off for you. I think they have done that for some.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.
My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - AAISP Home::1 80/20. Sync 59504/15641kbps @ 600m. - BQM

I'm with Xilo/uno but their 80/20 has a 500gb limit.

Though unmetered hours amount to 4.5 days out of 7 (8.00pm - 8.00am and all weekend) similar to what I once had with Freeola - Got by on a 50gb package.

That's quite a lot for peak time use, but still a long way away from the 500gb. Some suppliers are not un-metered until midnight.

I have Infinity 2. The Line Checker told me when I ordered (and still does) that I would get 76 Meg download speed, but I have never achieved better than 60 - even using the Test Socket.
