Need More than 40GB Peak Bandwidth


[link to this post]
 
As per subject..
What are my options for more than 40GB peak bandwidth ?

I've looked at other ISP's and they offer 100GB for similar rates..

Any suggestions ?

Have you looked at the ratings people give those other ISPs?

Have you checked out their traffic management and FUPs?

Have you browsed their forums?

If you tell us which ISPs you mean maybe more useful comments could be made.

On IDNet you do of course have 60GB available, and then the Business packages, but all cost.

What exchange are you on anyway?

Depends on what's available at your exchange. I take it from the 40gb restriction that you aren't on a 21cn exchange?

If you have at least TalkTalk LLU available, you can always opt for the partial-LLU (SMPF) product using Opal. Vivaciti and Xilo have offerings in this category.

I myself am on Vivaciti's Surfwise Variety package. ADSL2+ speeds, asssuming you're close enough to the exchange to avail of it and 100Gb FUP cap. It is traffic managed however and torrents, newsgroups and some of the more popular download sites like Fileserve, Megaupload etc are throttled.

It isn't too bad though, I usually get about half my connection speed (14mbit - 700kbps) in download speed from the likes of Hotfile etc. You can buy the Fileshare addon which makes it 100% unmanaged and uncapped, but it bumps up the £20 per month price significantly.

Sky Unlimited LLU might be a better option, if they have unbundled your exchange and you're already a subscriber.

Best to find one forum for a general enquiry rather than ask the same question in a couple.

Closing this so members can post here if they wish.

Closed.
