Waiting and hoping, but for what? I suppose we might see higher usage allowances, but the pricing is probably still going to be at the high end. If A&A launched something at Zen prices would they even be able to cope with the influx of customers and maintain decent quality support? Perhaps they can only ever be a small, expensive, ISP, whether they want to be or not.

Waiting to see what the new packages are. They might be high up agreed however anything is a step down from the line i am getting with them, which is £180 a month.

We have been a AAISP user for a long time, and always expected to pay a premium, but as time moves on, the allowances have not moved in line of what a typical user requires in 2015. So it's hurting. Particularly daytime rates. Now that Zen has IPV6, we are reluctantly looking at switching. The only thing stopping us from doing it today, is A) we want to make sure users are happy with Zen IPV6, and B) rumors of new AAISP rates.

I have had IPv6 with Zen since Monday. My Fritz!Box picked up the connection automatically when IPv6 was ticked. I have had webpage loading issues with Safari 9 (El Capitan OSX beta) - but not with Chrome. Safari issues have been resolved by changing the IPv6 connection in Settings from Automatic to Local Link only. My line has full 80/20 and it has been rock solid now for over a month. I am sure AAISP is a premium service; however, in my opinion, Zen comes very close. No slowdowns, for example, during OSX, Windows 10 roll outs etc.

Recently 'RevK' said on Twitter "BT were charging more than they would"!

I thought this was hard to believe so teased him: https://twitter.com/HmmmUK/status/623537796175802368

...he didn't get back to answer the final question, I guess he's still 'checking' tongue

Hope he doesn't block me for bringing this up!!!

Well out of date, but currently showing as £10 + £18 for 40/10 for 12 months, and Sainsbury's voucher. crazy

It doesn't seem to show a "normal" price anywhere obvious. It's also possible the neighbour was upgrading with BT and didn't get the joiner discounts.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

I have Zen but was unable to get IPv6 to work so I left it. It's rock solid 24/7 but I will be moving soon and I hope going back to A&A.

Nothing to do with Zen. I just want my own line.

All working fine on IPv6 here via Zen with my Fritz!Box 7490. Initially speeds were terrible via IPv6 but that seems fine now.

I have considered moving to A&A but as some people pointed out, and I agree with, the package allowances aren't in line with average demand. Unless this changes then I may well stick with Zen as I've had no issues with the service for over a year (although I do pay for critical care, the top business FTTC package, so I'd expect an excellent service). I'm keen on A&A particularly from what I hear about their support being superb and the control panel offering some facilities that ISP's don't normally offer and usually are restricted to the ISP's own use (e.g. KBD).

yes it is superb support and the control panel is just mental. well I only experienced with on ADSL2.

No problem with Zen, couldn't get IPv6 to work but not a problem. I just want to go back to where I was before
