Suggestions for a gaming ISP in Brighton (Kemp Town exch)?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,
I'm looking for an ISP that can provide decent ping times and preferably no caps on data etc, in the Brighton (Kemp Town) area, could anyone suggest something? I don't mind paying a little extra for some quality (will be living approx 1500m from the exchange, Hanover area).

thanks for your time.

Be. Don't worry about the 16Mbps, that's because of the silly new advertising rules. Connections are up to 24Mbps down and 2.5Mbps up, if the line is short enough.
Edit - multiple typos.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet Extra Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 57.4/14.6Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Thanks for the quick reply, their unlimited tariff seems a good deal. Hopefully 1500m is 'close' enough to the exchange!

As you don't mind paying a little extra for better quality , then Be now o2 wholesale via one of the many smaller isp's that offer it, such as http://www.vivaciti.net/internet/1/home-internet/6/p... They offer 3 products in the premium range that are o2 wholesale(use same LLU kit at exchange)
PREMIUM /Annex M /LITE Lite is capped at 12mbps max sync annex M offers up to 2.5mbps upload sync all come with a static ip address uk support , and could well offer better peering /routing to some destinations than what the o2/be retail offerings do which could mean lower latency and also less fluctuations (lag spikes)
Also most to the smaller isp's as yet are not required to block/censor web sites such as newzbin2 and the piratebay there are also others being blocked by the big 6 isp's

Thanks Tommy, that's given me something to think about. I'd forgotten about the blocking/censorship issues too..
The 4th package in their premium range looked good from the 75% max use point of view, although it's limited to 50GB/month which seemed harsh for the price, but is otherwise tempting. Did you not mention this product due to the use limit, or is there something else I'm missing?

BE Unlimited is unlimited so no worries about stupid usage limits. The Piratebay have moved to the cloud so blocking is no longer an issue.

That package isnt an o2 wholesale package ,from the referral to 20/21cn would suggest that it's using BT wholesale , so would be subject to DLM profiling and it's got a useage cap

Only the other 3 above it are o2 wholesale unlimited products , and are in terms of max sync speeds identical to the Be retail product ranges But the O2 wholesale products although may share the LLU exchange kit and offer the same max speeds of upto 24mbps down and 1.4mbps up (2.5mbps Annex M ) as well as the options to configure the Target SNR 3-6-9db and switch to fast path (no interleave)

The rest from Vlan used from exchange onwards is a completely different service, Peering used and associated routing is different ,

I'm synced at 15190/1205 on o2, who use the same network as Be. Bentham Road.
Also it's is little quicker especially upstream if I use the o2 supplied router.

HTH.
