Infinity opionins a few months on?


[link to this post]
 
I'm currently on Be getting a healthy 18mbps and have been looking at switching to infinity for a few months. The capping was putting me off but I believe that has now gone but they still have traffic shaping. What falls under traffic shaping? I never use P2P/torrents but do use FTP, direct downloads and newsgroups and wouldn't be happy if these were being slowed down! Also, a light on-line gamer - no issue with pings etc?

You'll find BT block access to Newzbin2. This is just for starters, soon a lot more sites will be blocked by BT imo.

I can see them throttling USENET in the future.

Currently only p2p is throttled and while newzbin will be blocked by BT at some point is isn't yet. Pointless really as it can be bypassed easily.

Edit: I get around 11/12ms pings to bbc.co.uk, ymmv of course.

I get full speeds 24/7, never notice a slow down... i'm in northern ireland and my ping is a rock solid 25ms to bbc.co.uk - this is around 6-10ms quicker than ipstream pings

If they ever do throttle newsgroups a lot of people will leave

BT have said they'll only block sites when they have a court order compelling them to. They didn't block it voluntarily it was either that or be held in contempt of court.

With 18 month contracts, you might struggle to leave without a significant financial penalty..

If BT are forced to block a number of sites what about other ISP's using BT's infrastructure?

Are BT going to force the ISP's as they are using the BT line etc? Or is it BT as a company being forced to block the sites and others will follow suit?

The thing is they just say "high speed service" in the contract, along with an "estimate" of how fast things will go.

Ergo: the contract does not guarantee you any specific throughput at all. Nor does it define "high speed", thus leaving that open for debate if you tried to leave. I'd bet they'd define "high speed" as 2mbit or so, anything else you manage to get is just lucky for you.

...so I guess you'd end up paying the termination fee after all smile Note please that I can't guarantee this, it's just speculation having read the contract through!

..actually going on from there, the Fibre t&cs explain they'll provide a high speed service in paragraph 1a, with a link to http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13725... , explaining how to improve your speed. From that link, you may follow to their broadband usage policy explaining how non time-critical services such as P2P (note that they only state "such as" and not "only") will be managed by them as/when required.

...so yeah, you signed up for a product which can be throttled at the descretion of BT.

My guess would be that it would be limited at present to those ISP's using the BT wholesale platform whilst alao using the Cleanfeed system. I dont think all of BT wholesales broadband customers (ISP's) use it, though I think they have to have some sort of filtering system in place.

I'm in the same boat as you. 16-18mb on Be for 4 years. Very pleased with their service, however, I feel I'm being left behind. I've avoided the likes of BT, Sky, Orange etc and kept to Zen, Clara, Plusnet and Be over the years. However, I've bitten the bullet and will be having my BT Infinity fibre connection installed on Thusday 4th. I'll update this thread with my impressions.
(I am a usenet user, and I'm rather hoping that BT don't start throttling in the future, but who knows, I certainly wont be trying to download the whole internet just because it's quick, but sadly, there are those who do).

27th July - MAC code from Be, then ordered the new service. This was in the evening. The BT site generates an install date when ordering. In my case it is Thursday 4th August, so pretty quick.

Is it truly unlimited now apart from the torrent traffic shaping? I looked at my Bebox stats and I estimated I could download up-to 1tb a month (realistically less though) by the look of it.

It is the ISP arm of BT that has been given this court order, not openreach. BT's ISP arm has the same relationship with or (officially at any rate) as other ISP's, so an order to them does not BT/or and the other ISPs who resell chunks of the infrastructure.

That is not to say other ISPs are not next in line for a similar court order, of course, but none have been given one yet.

If this might be a significant issue for you, look for an ISP that has taken a consistent stance against such censorship in the past (AAISP are the only ones that spring to mind, they are one of the few that don't take part in the IWF scheme, but there will no doubt be others if you look around).

There are alternatives of course: rent a VPS somewhere for a few $/month and use a VPN to route traffic through there. There is little your ISP can do to filter that (though if you ISP throttles P2P your VPN may be hit to as they can't easily tell the difference between encrypted P2P traffic and encrypted VPN traffic).

Hi, Well, I've been with Infinity for three months now, and only had two "slow/disconnected" periods of 10/12 hours at a time - when BT were doing remedial work (all fine by 6am next day). They advised me 29/6 and I typically get 34/8 - my max was 38.98 down & 8.4 up. Very happy with the service, but BT "customer care" leaves a bit to be desired at times!

Touche'... What could I have been thinking?
Oh yes, I remember, it was the four years of good service from o2 "customer care" that was in my mind! I only left them because BT couldn't fix a 6 month-long, ongoing fault.
It was with reservations that I went to BT again. As I said, the actual BB is super, but admin errors right from the start.
1) Not actioning the £120.00 I paid up from for line rental..
2) Not putting me on "ex-directoy" as requested - nuisance calls, which BT conceded were from a previous line-holder's contacts - necessitated them providing me with a 2nd phone line within two weeks.
3) Seventeen - I kid you not - calls to get these issues sorted.
Yep, you certainly are right - it was unforgivable to use customer care in the same sentence as BT!

Nice! What was your predicted speed during signup?


It was 29 / 6 .

Which I would have been quite happy with, but obviously 37 is better smile

I don't know whether this is likely to go down during the settling in period though.

Delighted here. Switched in Jan 2011, a few weeks after ordering opened.

Moved from 3.5-4/1 up to 34/8 . Rarely slows down. Very reliable - only noticed one drop. Don't really use P2P so not noticed throttling issues.

Brilliant for multiple concurrent HD video streams and no bw limit concerns...

Glad you got it done. Your figures are just as mine were originally ie 38.89/8.3 - they offered 29/6. After three months the figures have slowed a little - a very little - and typically I get between 30 - 34 down & 8.3 up most of the time. Hope yours works out as good. Cheers, Les.

Hi, Pretty much the same as mine. I'm a little lower than you on download, and a little higher on upload. The only problems I've had was loss of service - twice - for a few hours each time, whilst BT were doing maintenance, but as they said, "normal service was resumed" @ 6am.
Hope it stays the same for you as it has for me. Cheers, Les.

Not had a problem with my Infinity connection since I had it installed in all honesty. My pings are pretty good (averaging 18 - 20ms), downloads always max out (depending on the ability of the download source of course) & FTP uploads and downloads do as they are supposed to - full speed.
