thinking of joining Zen


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

I'm tempted to join Zen on their 80/20 package.

Any comments on Zen and it's service?

Anyone care to recommend a good router to take advantage of speeds on offer? (I don't want the in house one supplied after my old ISP).

Draytek Vigor 2860 works well and has a built in FTTC modem. Rated throughput is 200Mbps so 80/20 is fine.

I'm currently looking for an FTTC provider, could I ask why your leaving Plusnet.

As it is currently who I'm thinking of ordering with?

I'm on Zen's 80/20 service.. Every time i run a speed test I get the same speeds, latency is good, very fast!

What, you get a burst speed of 133 Mbps?

Zen suits me. If you join them, then you have to provide your own router anyway. However get the latest version of a router from your manufacturer of choice to get the best performance; this may well cost you over £200..

Zen's monthly cost for 80/20 business class unlimited service with line rental is a tad over £52 on a 12 month contract. So if you are looking for something that is cheap and cheerful then Zen is not for you.

Bt Infinity / HH5 suits me. No suspicious speedtest results either.

Is there any reason to choose Zen over Plusnet?

Apart from price!

I emailed there sales asking a few questions on Sunday and they got back to me Monday morning answering everything and even surprised me a bit with there Static IP policy.

Unfortunately they do need over £100 to install new line compared to PN's £50 and others that are free but I might get a PO Line Installed and then migrate!
