Re: Infinity opionins a few months on?


[re: blueacid] [link to this post]
 
..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.

Cheers,

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.

In reply to a post by rendez2k:
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?


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).

Great - exactly the same as me. Please let me know how it goes! How long has it taken from sign up to get an install date?

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.

Hmmm?
It seems not to have been applied to me, being as I am, a BT Infinity customer. I recently joined, and have been quite able to access content via NewzBin - the non-copyright stuff, of course.

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.

So, I've done it. Install date is next Tuesday. Signing up was a minor annoyance as the site crashed. Had to call them twice to get the order sorted. Not a good start!

Anyway, they sent me a BT-yahoo email account. I assume this won't work until I get the broadband going?
