Currently I'm on a solid ADSL2 connection provided by Idnet and have been with them for several years. I'd like to move to FTTC but to afford that extra cost I need to move to one of the big ISP's.
Contacting Plusnet seems painless enough, but my question is in regard to their traffic management policy which theyve been open about for many years. I know they used to sell their broadband in a tiered way with the top product usually being free of management. But what about now seeing their product range is less specific? I don't use P2P, but do rely on streaming albeit upto a lowly but steady 3.5Mbps.
Fibre either at 38 or 76Mbps would suit me fine for large downloads including game products from Steam. But does Plusnet see such platforms which use different ports as something they need to throttle? I'm just trying to work out if moving to Plusnet so I can afford fibre would be a good move or not - or if my current solid ADSL2 connection at 16.5Mbps is worth sticking with?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
