Xilo & Be wholsale products


[link to this post]
 
Is it possible to migrate from be retail to a BE wholesale product, The reason that i ask is that from info that i have ,this isn't possible as yet, or has that situation now changed ,?

If Mat when he gets the chance could clarify what the situation is that would be good, for many out there who may be in the process of migrating or are considering doing so

Its should also be free until April 30thwink

Current Flying Start offer from Bewholesale.
The promotion offers resellers and wholesalers free connections on all new orders and migrations from February 1st to April 30th, 2012....The saving on each connection is worth approximately £40 and BE Wholesale is also offering partners marketing support and advice to help them maximise the benefits of the offer over the coming months.

tommy45,

Moving between Be Retail and BT Wholesale is fine. Be Wholesale use vlans for the large part. The traffic just gets pointed down a different vlan.

We are in the process of moving about a dozen Be Retail customers already this week to our Family Unlimited (Be Wholesale based) which can be found at http://www.aquiss.net/broadband-unlimited.php

We opted to give free activation/migration ourselves before this offer was launched by Be. We also throwing in 2 free months service as well.

So this type of migration isn't the same as a new connection, as in moved to a different port /line card , everything stays as is at the exchange ? I was also under the impression that the backhaul was different to be retail, i know that the peering is totally different

I can only speak for for our Be products (used for getting on 12 months or so now) but everyone i know is using Be Wholesale products, everyone has similar setup to us...ie: VLAN based (though i know Be offer VLAN and realming termination options).

The actual port/line card is not changed (downtime is about 10 mins) with the vlan handling the backhaul routes to where the termination of SPs LNS's are located. Peering as you say is different to Be Retail as ISPs have their own transit arrangements.

I'm sure there will exceptions though with companies taking from Be Wholesale in different ways, in a similar way to how BT offer various solutions.

OK done some maths on this and with the 2 mths free and free migration offer it on comparison works out at just under another reseller's price (Pro Annex M ) over a 12mth period
I have some questions after visiting your web site

Is the offer available on a monthly contract ?

What are the ways to pay you , direct debit?

Do you Filter or censor anything IE( IWF ) ect, which has frequently caused several cyber lockers to be incorrectly blocked or block any ports ?

Hi Tommy,

These questions are actually answered on our web site at http://www.aquiss.net/broadband-unlimited.php. Apologises if there not clear.

We offer both a 12 month contract and 1 month contract option. The offer can apply to both. Please see web site though (Q&A point 2) for details regarding 1 month contract.

Direct debit is not currently offered. Standing Orders or BACS are similar options.

We do no filtering and blocking of sites, including non use of services such of IWF.
