I finally got my cabinet enabled for the fibre. However being BE user for 8 yrs I am now a bit concerned on jumping ships. I never had any complaints on the BE speeds. For few months in 2008 or 9 they had troubles with US traffic - mostly it was changing routing several times a day. But other than that - it was a breeze.
Now my main concern for the internet service is stability and predictability. and NOT speed. I mainly use US traffic which is downstream and it is very small in size. But latency is paramount.
Again I do understand you cant beat speed of cable transmission between the continents but I want it predictable and I want ZERO packet drops whether it is 5am or 5pm.
I understand that BE is so good because it is off the mainstream.
Now if I am going to switch - I would like to see what is the mainstream providers speeds / latency / packet loss like DURING the day.
P.S. I know that the most obvious answer would - stay where you are. but I want to try new things. And I want to make sure the new thing is as good as the old one. So please help with the information not critics. Thank you
