xilo/uno


[link to this post]
 
hi just a few questions about xilo/uno broadband

ive had a look but cant seam to find it although some times im blind as a bat when its directly in front of my eyes lol.

I can see they have a £40 activation fee for LLU connections (talktalk/BE based connections ) but do they have a minimum contract EG 12 months or do they offer 1 month contracts (id presume so with the activation fee)

second if i put my number in it says

Pro 24 75GB Up to 24Mb 1Mb 75GB £21.99
Be 16 6Mb 1.3Mb Unmetered £12.49
Be 24 6Mb 1.3Mb Unmetered £17.49
Be 24 Advanced 6Mb 2.5Mb Unmetered £22.49

dose that mean if i was to sign up i would get hard capped at 6 meg or is it just a estimate based on BTs database meaning if the line can have it it will go upto 16 (bassed on be16) these are my current stats on that line.

third do they allow you to tweak you SNR your self like BE do in there web panel

thanks for any info

Ash

It would be a one month rolling contract with a months notice to cancel.

The estimate for the line is 6Mb but will go higher, up the the product speed if possible. i.e 16Mb Be is capped at 16Mb.

We do but only via ticket currently. Portal will follow soon.

Yes, as retail manage their own routing so do the companies that buy service wholesale, and they will also be different, so Xilo will have routing their way, ours may be different to theirs etc.

Thanks, I'm hoping for a crapper ping myself, Has playing with a 20ms ping games are unplayable due to lag compensation.

Just transfered to Xilo from Be Retail.

My sync rate has increased (previously about 19 and now just over 20). Ping is the same (8ms) and throughput feels alot more responsive.

Also lovefilm, netflix and bbc iplayer work flawlessly so the mrs is very happy now!

Excellent service.

Yes it is an excellent service smile

My cousin gets a reading of ~7Mbps downstream with the BBCi diagnostics speed tester on TalkTalk full LLU and I get ~12Mbps with xilo/uno partial LLU when testing during evening peak times. We both have a similar downstream loop loss (~37dB) and we both have interleaving on.

+1 for Xilo/Uno broadband.

Best move I ever made. Static IP profile (goodbye BT DLM) on partial LLU using TalkTalk equipment. Best speed / reliability that I've ever had since the exchange was BB enabled. Good CS as well (had to phone them once.. answered promptly and problem sorted the same day).

Just an update thanks for the quick response i originally got but FTTC became available quicker than i thought so in the end i moved directly onto it i will keep you guys in mind though if i ever need to move back onto ADSL for any reason because you do have some good prices on the BE products
