in the same boat.

Maybe for all the business features its good value.

But I only want it for the static ip address (uk support might be nice addition also). But for a static ip thats one hell of a price bump.

Plus its possible the business packages have not had the throttling removed either, notice the lack of true or total unlimited but just unlimited wording. Then of course the 2 year contract even longer than the consumer product and does it need a business landline?

You can have Business Infinity on a 12 month contract.

It can be delivered over either business or residential lines. If over a residential line the the business level repair time-scales apply to the voice side too!

how to get on 12 month contract? I guess its phone order only and probably with higher monthly price?

A few good points there, that I hadn't thought of, throttling has never affected me as I use P2P very rarely, so not too worried about that.

As I still have another six months left on my Infinity2 contractt, I'll wait and see what happens before I decide what to do.

The quote in the news is a full copy/paste.

The key is that if they are on the CG-NAT a call to support should get them off it again.

We are looking at adding a note to the speed test if we detect you on the BT CG-NAT solution.

the traffic shaping document on the business site shows p2p still throttled.

Currently I think I may be going to plusnet. I have asked the guys on there to do some tests for me.

Zen seems to have quite unfavourable t&c's. aaisp short contract but is going to requrie a huge budget of me, but I am defenitly favouring aaisp over zen as I know the sort of service I get of aaisp to justify the cost, whilst zen is the higher cost whilst a complete unknown.

Have a look at my comment further down:

You can opt out of the trial, and hopefully the whole damned thing if they introduce it.

Just saw a post on BT Forum that it is not only affecting Option 1 customers.

I know but I need to be on a static ip, dynamic is causing me too many headaches so I still need to change anyway.
