Thanks Matt, the reason I ask is because I'm thinking of moving to Utility Warehouse (Telecoms Plus) and they say they use their equipment, but I believe they resell various LLU providers rather than have their own in each exchange. They have an unlimited product, but if they re-sell another's product can they call it unlimited and unshaped if they are using TalkTalk kit? Do they have the option to unthrottle/unshape/no-FUP if they resell.
The guy i'm speaking with is phd and has worked in telecoms/computer science so I do lend weight to his words, but it just doesn't seem likely that they are a primary LLU operator, especially as they have no forum here and are not mentioned on samknows etc.
Matt, you say you pick up traffic in london for instance and that shaping is not done at the exchange, but you dont say if shaping is within your part of the network or prior to when it gets to you...and if it is prior for you, is that your business decision or something you have no say in
There are 10 kinds of people, those who understand binary and those who don't.
