Market 1


[link to this post]
 
A couple of questions to PlusNet please:

Unfortunately stuck on ADSL Max (Market 1 exchange). Current line speed is around 2.5meg, No ADSL2+ and no info at all on future Fibre.

Getting a good deal on a market 1 exchange is impossible when compare to an ADSL2+ LLU exchange.

Is it still true that if I wanted a slightly higher upload from 448Kbps to 832Kbps an extra charge of £7 +vat per month still applies? Yet ADSL2+ goes up to 1.3Mbps free of charge or even fibre at huge speeds!

Correct the Max Premium charge still applies on those exchanges where IPStream Max and IPStream Max Premium are the two rate adaptive options.

It just feels so unfair to be penalised for being connected to a slow exchange.

The joy of trying to encourage TalkTalk and Sky to keep rolling out in the safe knowledge they can undercut price wise.

I thought BT IPstream ADSL was being fazed out?

TalkTalk roll outs seem to give the lie to BT's "uneconomic to upgrade" view. For ages they said that about 5 exchanges in this county - all of which suddenly became viable for WBC upgrades when Talk Talk unbundled them over the last 18 months or so

Any ISP that thinks that selling my click traffic is acceptable is MisinPHORMed

In areas where WBC is available of course.
