I'm looking to move from BE to an FTTC solution. Over the past month or two, my speed has gone from a consistent 8Mb to around 6 with daily disconnects. Using their 'reliability' profile, the disconnects go away, but the speed goes down to 3Mb. So I need a new home.
I've narrowed it down to BT Infinity business or Zen Internet. I need 5 static IP addresses as I host a few things.
Zen claim to do no traffic shaping on anything but they have a 200GB monthly cap (instead of a peak cap like ADSL24) and it will cost me 60 quid to get setup. They do offer a 12 month contract though.
BT won't charge me the 60 quid for setup and they include a router for free. They also claim to be unlimited in their bandwidth setup, but I can't get a straight answer on throttling or shaping on their business connection. I'd also be signing up for 2 years, and they can't guarantee me an uplink speed which is concerning to me.
Does anyone have any experience with BT's shaping on their business FTTC connection or know what Zen charge when you go over the 200GB / month cap ?
Thanks in advance,
