I'm thinking of getting Infinity when I move, after getting an estimated 10mbit on Bethere/o2, who I've been with for 4 years very happily without traffic shaping or slow downs. The infinity estimate is 35mbit, which is nice.
I just have one really large concern:
Traffic shaping. BT openly admit (fair enough for that) they restrict speeds on certain protocols like P2P, which isn't the biggest issue to be honest; I just am not sure I'm comfortable with any ISP that traffic shapes.
So: Has anyone actually noticed any slow down at peak, P2P or otherwise? Or can you generally max out the connection at any point?
A secondary question:
I saw a picture somewhere of a funky new BT faceplate because of the way the connection comes in. Does this mean you can only put the modem on the master socket? When they install infinity do you have the option of using it in any socket? My study is upstairs so want the modem and router etc in there to keep it out of the way.
Other than that, it seems most people in the other Infinity threads are quite happy with the service, and it'd certainly be nice having so much upload speed.
Thanks in advance for any replies!
