I have been with O2 LLU for a number of years (with a BT phone line) on the old O2 Standard 8Meg legacy package but manage about 3.5 - 4 Meg.
The recent outage, slowdowns and DNS problems are becoming more common and is making me think of changing supplier. Will I have the same problems with BE (or one of the BE resellers) as it is the same network or should I take the plunge and go for BT Fibre (have not heard good things about BT as an ISP though)?
Thanks for any thoughts
Be via a reseller would be a completely different experience than what you get with BE retail oe o2 , as none of the peering routing or related congestion issues would be present as the only part that is the same is the DSLAM
Everything else is down to the reseller and their wholesaler , Bt isn't a good choice if you ever needed support , but their infinity products appear to be better VFM than the other FTTC offerings around
BTW Regarding the DNS issues you do not have to use the isp's DNS you can choose from quite a few free public dns servers So matter which isp your with
