TalkTalk Essentials


[link to this post]
 
Thinking of getting essentials broadband. Am i right in thinking that there is no traffic shaping at all now on essentials?

Also anything else of note thats different from the much more expensive broadband option?

if you mean fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) as the more expensive broadband option then yes, there are differences.

I think they only offer one ADSL broadband now, Essentials.

There is traffic shaping on P2P protocols when necessary, no other shaping mentioned recently, but I wonder if all the new FTTC connections will overload the current backhaul and we will be back to severe shaping during peak times

In theory, theory and practice are identical.....in practice they aren't!

38 Meg Fibre is an add-on to their solitary Essentials BB product, so presumably they have the same traffic management etc.

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 20 Meg WBC

i thought they still offered two, Essentials and the one with Tv. As been said above, Fibre is like a addon.

Traffic shaping and Talk Talk goes well together unless they have changed.

They have changed, Talktalk don't shape traffic anymore, so they fall into line with BT and Sky now.

There is only one adsl product that you can have. The TV is an add-on in the sense that it doesn't affect your sync rate or data limits etc.

Even though you add-on £5/£10/£20 for the fibre, it is obviously a different product that changes your sync/throughput, which is why I personally wouldn't call it an add-on.
