Essentially, C&W offered unmetered access to their network and TTB charge on a Mbit basis, currently.

Hence why some products are unmetered, some are not. No other science involved.

Yes, either go to 21CN and stay on that, or do a double migration to 21CN and back from it - but at double the migration cost.

And the costs for a double MAC? I want to stay away from 21cn DLM although I hear it is alot better than the old days.

You could go MPF from SMPF but no way around a double migration if you want to stay SMPF.

So you have to buy bandwidth and usage off TT but just bandwidth of C&W? Wow, things have moved on since IPStream. Put a couple of 622s in and job done!

I'm on the BE/O2 16 package with Xilo and have been since December, think they now refer to it as Elite.

I have a long line and the difference in stability between O2 and BT 21CN line management is like night and day.

Zen did a lot to try and help me with the connection but because of the line length the DLM kept hammering the connection speed.

I too had to think a little about the migration cost but decided to got for it and am glad I did.

I know have a rock solid connection running at just over 3.6 Meg which will happily support VPN which I have to sometimes use.

I've dealt with both Matt and Tom at Xilo who have been extremely helpful.

I am definitely an extremely satisfied customer

Virgin (ADSL) => Namesco => Newnet => O2 => Plusnet => Zen => Newnet => Zen => Freeola => Vivaciti (using O2 Wholesale DSL) => Xilo (C&W Wholesale) => Xilo (O2 Wholesale)

I'm on Xilo C&W LLU on the Taunton exchange. I can't help on the profile change question, but thought I'd just say that it is certainly great value and I never seem to experience exchange level congestion. I do seem to have occasional noise issues though, with one or two re-syncs almost daily. I tried to do something about it a couple of years ago, but gave up. Fortunately a FTTC is cab is just being installed very close by...

Here is my monitor for reference.

Glad this discussion came up. It's decided me to move over to the new Pro 100GB... looks pretty good value to me.

Yes I got a couple of emails from xilo about changes, so put in a ticket, after doing an availability check, and the account was changed swiftly and very efficiently smile
