Might the Home::1 tariff help there as an alternative to jumping to another ISP, getting rid of the peak/off-peak split?

(I'm in the opposite boat right now - approaching the end of my year's FTTC commitment and thinking of jumping to A&A when I can. Last year, I could get FTTC but not Be ADSL, which on the tariffs at the time ruled out A&A; the arrival of Home::1 seems to make it viable for me.)

I'm guessing a business pays for your connection then?

There are some restrictions on Home::1 - mainly that it's for home users and there are no VAT invoices, it's all on the Home::1 page on our website.

You can use Netflix with AAISP though, do don't block or filter anything.

I work from home, so a portion of the bill is paid by a company. I pay the rest.

I'd suggest trying to change the arrangement so you pay it all and your work pay you through expenses. No VAT invoice then so should be eligible.

Yes I had thought of that, but I would still need a VAT invoice.

Maybe there is an opportunity there to do a HomeWorker::1 package. A single invoice to the company for all homeworkers, and separate invoices to each homeworker for their share. Have some sort of flexible billing portal, to manage how much each homeworker pays.

My share is based on the cheapest TalkTalk package. The business pays for the rest.

Depending on how much you're currently paying in total have you looked at office::1 instead?

I worked it out to about £325 + VAT per month!! It would be cheaper to buy the Mrs DVD box sets of everything she watches on Netflix on her days off.

Got to do something. The ear bashing I get because we don't have internet she can use during her days off. "all my mates watch Netflix...why cant we?"
