Like many people on BE, we're in need of a good replacement ISP now that Sky have done the deal (well nearly done the deal anyway).
Thinking that now would be a good time to jump to fibre (yes, the local cabinet's in place).
Never wanted to leave Be as they've been excellent over the years, but heh.
My main concerns with any provider (especially one reselling BT wholesale products), is that I get little (if any) traffic shaping. Yes, I know the necessity to some degree, but don't want to have to jump ship again shortly after joining a new ISP.
I'm particularly interested in real-world speeds when using Usenet. Do PN throttle at certain times (they mention a Bronze level of priority for P2P and Usenet). Whilst I understand this may give higher priority to people streaming iPlayer... what about customers that don't ?
Also, is it possible to place whatever modem PN supply on their Unlimited Fibre product, into Bridge Mode?
I use a separate dedicated router.
Whilst I'm being pretty specific on my requirements, we don't actually DL masses each month, we just want a good balanced speed at all times.
It sounds like PN have a good reputation for Support and Customer services, but I'm nervous about the whole Openwound involvement.
Thanks all for any info.
Ps. Better still... who do people recommend for excellent Support and non-traffic management when looking at Fibre ISP's ?
