A lot will depend on what product they move you over onto.

Did the letter say which product?

It may be you are moved but onto a special product, i.e. that performs just as current service.

SkyGo and other streaming services are prioritised on our network and should work without any issues (I personally use SkyGo quite a lot and haven't experienced any slowdowns on it).

Looks like a good move. smile.

Do you know how to find your router stats? See here for help. If you post them we may be able to give you even better news. Or not frown! Depending on what the stats say.

Vodafone at home migration to plusnet


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
Goog move??

When i signed up to voda, it was sold as unlimited (40 Gb FUP).I use 80-100 Gb/month.

No traffic management.

I moved from plusnet to vodafone because of slow MS updates and ISO downloads from my technet subscription.

After six months i will be charged £1for caller display.

BUT.... been looking around and £26.50 is still cheap for market 1 (http://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange/SWRSO) exchange for calls, rental and >50Gb adsl.

The only other option is BT line rental saver and vivaciti Home 100,


Ian
