Seem to have a bit better understanding altho tbh wish would let me manage my traffic myself lol. Plusnet do seem to be a good alternative for me. Tempted to try the service on one month contract for 1-2 months and if I like it upgrade to 12month contract.

QoS at your end can only manage the upstream smile. Unless you cage the kids tongue.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 54.0/14.9Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Don't understand why wants £50 activation fee for 1 month contract if I am migrating tbh lol sorta takes away the trial element to it.

Because somehow they have to make a profit. Openreach charge the gaining ISP for the migration to them, did you know that? Most ISPs recover that cost over time, taking the hit if someone does leave after a month or so, because overall it works out. Especially if you stay - paying the installation cost on the drip inside your monthly subscription long after it has been paid off.

If they charged the prices you find too high at vivaciti then they wouldn't need a connection charge for non-contract. Of course, like nearly all ISPs, if you also take their phone line rental there is no activation fee. That's because they all make far more money on line rental and calls than they do on broadband.

BT for instance don't have a monthly option. Nor Sky and TalkTalk LLU. O2 LLU is a 12-month contract but you can convert to monthly by paying a on-off £30 at order time. Same principle.

I do see the logic behind it but I remember when you used to get free trials smile. I have decided to bite the bullet and get 12 month contract including phone this will save me about £30 a month.

You could move over to our LLU Unlimited package on your exchange.

Hi,
There is no hassle as long as you stay away from full LLU, with SMPF (partial LLU) if you want to migrate you just request a MAC as with your current product.

not an option really as you charge another "20 for traffic shaping to be removed costing me more than I already pay.unless the CW Home is a SMPF service .

The LLU unlimited is the CW service and does not have P2P restrictions at all
