Clara.Net - opinions/alternatives


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I'm a home user looking to move to FTTC. I'm not an average home user as I work from home and often move large amounts of data around to work colleagues, so I'm looking at Clara.Net SOHO 40/10 buisness package. Whilst it is expensive compared to a home users package, it does give me what I want including unmetered and unshaped up & down, static IP, no port blocking etc...
Does anyone use them? If so, what are they like for support etc... The very few reviews seem to be old and negative, but the package they offer - whilst slihtly more expensive than others - seems to offer what I want & need (I'm currently a Be home user and like the no limits/unmetered aspect of the product).

Thanks in advance

Out of interest did you go with clara ?

I am in a similar position and looking for some feedback about them.

Thanks

I'm looking at their 'gamer' a/c (10 GB traffic / month in peak hours of 0800-1800 and FUP 'unmetered' off peak) from the claranetsoho.co.uk site.

I am not a gamer, but it will mean I can use Netflix / LoveFilm / iPlayer on PS3 during the evening to watch TV shows or films without worrying about how much the downloads clock up.

NB Bank Holidays are treated same as other weekdays so daytime 10 GB allowance is still in effect.
