Re: Uno Duo VDSL


[re: 4M2] [link to this post]
 
I believe the assured rate is the rate that they would take any action with their wholesale provider if the actual throughput is lower (than the assured rate).

I may still get what I get now on Duo Advanced, but Uno are going to be in a significantly worse position in terms of escalating to their wholesale network provider if there are performance issues.

For me, it comes down to a question about whether I potentially want to risk compromising my broadband connection to save money (and the saving is not inconsiderable - £14 per month compared to the monthly equivalent of my annual fee with IDNet).

I get the feeling that this is a product designed to compete with the mass market products and may be found wanting by more discerning users (e.g. typical TBB forumites), but that is just conjecture.

I agree it does feel like that frown

@ jaydub
Uno is a brilliant ISP and I left them recently with a very heavy heart. Why? 'Cos Virgin Media laid fibre down my street (coax to the house) and I am getting 15-20x the speed I had with FTTC. Had I been getting much better speeds, I would have stayed. I am not connected to my closest cabinet and that does not help, of course.

You will be very well looked after at Uno.

Cheers

@DrTeeth,

I know that Uno are a really, really good ISP.

However, I just can't see any logic in moving from a rock solid IDNet Btw with an 80-20 sync connection to Uno when they advertise their 80-20 Fibre+ package with an assured rate of 40 Mbps and their Duo Advanced 80-20 product with an assured rate of 20Mbps.
