Thanks!

It would only be possible to up grade to FTTC if TalkTalk business offered it as a services , i see no mention of FTTC on there website , so guess that's a no ! ( at the moment )

With TalkTalk , not as bad as some might have you believe

Please (and this is truly from the heart), stay away from TT. Whatever they promise. You will get hurt.

i really like TalkTalk..

in fact, they offer a magnificent service through LLU.

And Business LLU is la creme-de-la-creme of TalkTalk's services... absolutely unmetered, unlimited bandwidth for little more than £10 a month.

Is it throttled or shaped? Is the (vague) FUP the same as the domestic FUP?

If so it's a little disingenuous to call it unmetered and unlimited.

So far the Business LLU service has been pretty solid, so no complaints there. Also considering BT Infinity. I don't suppose anyone has seen a comparison of the two?

TalkTalk has said there's no shaping or throttling, and i haven't noticed any signs.. It really is magnificent. And a a price of just £10 a month it's embarrassing for the other ISPs!

What have you tried though? I'm on vanilla Talktalk LLU. I notice for instance my uploads slow from ~90kB/s down to 10kB/s or much less between 6pm and 9pm or later. I also get dropped repeatedly from chatrooms that I've been constantly in for the last 9 years during those times of day. This is with the winmx protocol.

Do you torrent? I know overnight is ok but I'm thinking more of the daytime/evening speeds.

If Opal use the same kit in the exchanges and if the kit decides the shaping etc then I don't see how the service is different. There were some 'ifs' there though smile

You're right Myth. The standard TalkTalk LLU service for a fiver is okay, but nothing special. Bit torrent traffic is definitely shaped. In fact it's as slow as a slug on dope. Yet downloading a blowout ISO of Ubuntu on the same connection was pretty damn quick.. Not exactly a scientific study, but there-yer-go! cheers
