Yes Pulse 8 are far too expensive no wonder they have all products FTTC & Gfast as no contract at all (just 30 days rolling on with advance payment)

You tend to get what you pay for in life, Max.

Tim and I are obviously happy paying more than you do with PN to get the freater flexibility that the likes of Pulse 8 and IDNet offer.

At the end of the day, it all comes down to personal choice and we make our own decisions based on what is most important to us.

Each ISP that is in business has a business model that works for them. If they didn't they wouldn't last long in this business.

Pulse8 might be too expensive for you but obviously not for others, otherwise they wouldn't still be around.

I've always steered clear of PN due to slowdowns I used to read about, maybe better for me. ISPreview has all 5 star reviews of Pulse 8 and I wanted to avoid the BT network so those were the main decisions behind my choice.

I would exercise extreme caution on ISPReview reviews. The sample size is unbelievably small and even with the unbelievably small sample sizes I have spotted ISP Review removing negative reviews of the owners favoured providers and lightning fast rebuttals of unfavourable reviews of the owners favoured providers.

ISPReview is an opinion on press releases site and should be treated as such.

I have no view on the benefits of either of the providers mentioned.

I was of the same mind with PN and with VirginMedia, but I was then a customer of PN for 6 years, without a single slowdown. Max's issues are interesting and could be local congestion connecting the exchange back to the backhaul, so would affect all BTw ISPs and hence would be fixed pretty quickly.

VM used to throttle based on usage, but that stopped a few years ago.

So Pulse 8 say the order is still failing due to a cease on the line and will try again next week yet Uno have already issued a refund for the cease on the line. Arggg
