Re: Idnet or Now TV?

If I go for a Idnet, what's the best router, modem to get for the highest sync speeds? Is the Bufalo one they provide good enough? I've seen people mention Xyzel?

Can't comment on the Buffalo but I've not heard of many people using them. The Zyxels are almost all Broadcom based so should be pretty sound on a Huawei cabinet.

FWIW I tested a Zyxel (Broadcom) against a Draytek (Lantiq based) and there was a marked difference in max attainable speed. The Zyxel was consistently showing 61Mbps whilst the Draytek was around 56Mbps. Both were rock solid and I doubt in practice anyone would notice much difference, but it was there.

Did you mean Buffalo anyway, as IDNet provides Billions according to their web site?

Apologies if I've missed anything obvious.

Haha yeah sorry I mean Billions...

So the same question but in regards to Billion.. I have been reading some more too and it seems being on Sky's network, which I presume Now TV is? Is better because it uses Sky's own backhaul and not BTW's. Doesn't make deciding any easier.

Would the Billion Idnet provide be better then the BT Home Hub 6 (smarthub).

I might be wrong with this, but I believe the Home Hub is only usable on BT or Plusnet connections, so the billion will be much better as it will work on IDNet.

The wifi on the Billion won't be as good though.

BTs home hub can be used with any connection on BTs network as you can enter username and passwords into it for the connection. I doubt it'll easily work with Sky though.
I'm not fussed about the wireless as I have a Netgear Orbi system for that.

I have been looking at Plusnet too, it means having 2mbps upload though and no IPv6. Are they worth considering? They'll be better then BT and cheaper then Now TV.

Or is Plusnet just best avoided these days?

Someone sent me a way to get my details, I am going to try it on a Billion 8800NL and I will let you know how I get on
