Partial Opal/TalkTalk LLU available from Vivaciti


[link to this post]
 
Just browsing the Vivaciti forums and there is a post here indicating they can now take partial LLU orders on TalkTalk enabled exchanges.

You can finally keep your voice line where it is and make use of the TalkTalk kit.

gmoorc,

I did a line check and it looks good, although a little expensive if one doesn't need 100GB FUP - maybe another partial LLU deal will become available from Vivaciti in the coming weeks for lighter users?

Also couldn't see anything about contracts etc.

Called Vivaciti this morning and was informed that they will probably have a cheaper, lower usage deal in a few weeks time, also partial LLU on a one month contract.

I think this could be a popular product. You see quite a few posts where TalkTalk are the only LLU on the exchange and the need to move your phone seems to put people off.

Check the situation with protocol management.
If it is using the same obit product as surfwise complete there may be throttling at certain times of the day which you can remove along with the FUP for an extra charge. I guess this depends on the package they have put together.

The guy at Vivaciti said the future less expensive product would be similar in usage terms to my current Plusnet "Pro" deal ???

Guess we will have to wait and see what happens...

Thanks for starting the thread and the info, much appreciated smile

No problem.
Don't know why they haven't publicised it at all unless they wanted a slow roll out... ooops smile

I noticed the throttling mainly on iplayer during the day so if that is important to you it would be worth double checking with them.
However a month contract and no phone line issues means it should be fairly risk free to try it out assuming that the normal MAC process still applies.

The iplayer issue should all have been sorted out a while ago as this should not be part of the restrictions.

Yep, when I did a line check last night a message came up about obtaining a mac key from my current ISP - guess the reverse process would apply if one wished to leave Vivaciti partial LLU and return to adslmax or whatever...

If there is throttling on iPlayer then it would definitely be a "no no" - I like to watch HD programmes in the evenings which I can do with Plusnet Pro without any problems, YouTube HD also.

vivaciti,

Thanks for the info.

But what about the mac process if one wished to leave Vivaciti partial LLU and go to another ISP on adslmax or whatever?
