Looks good, perhaps too good to be true! Allegedly, no caps and under £30 a month. 64% of the population covered within a year, starting with 45 exchanges in London.
I'll certainly be keeping an eye on it. Good spot!
You would be a bit weary if this was a new startup but bear in mind they are well established in markets outside the UK and so are bringing a well tested business model that should prove viable over here.
I'm definitely keeping an eye on them and with more LLU providers pushing the speed limit and no caps is a good thing.
If I could get to 2mb it would be a start!
I've signed up to be kept up-to-date so we'll see how it goes. Looks good though
Yeah living in London I tend to forget that these LLU services are primarily geared towards metropolitan areas. Atleast this might pressure BT further to both increase speed and availability.
I'm hoping it will just force the other suppliers to up their own rates.
I'm on Bulldog 8M at the moment which is pretty sweet (512 upload too).
If I could get to 1MB it would be a good start for me ! "too far from the exchange ---at the moment sir"
Suspect they might be telling porkies a little ... was chatting with a Nortel VOIP engineer last night whose played with the ADLS2+ provisioning equipment and, by all accounts, it's 24Mbps at the ATM layer - end-users (so that's you, me and those bandwidth tests on most websites) will "only" see about 16Mbps of that bandwidth.
So much like 54G doesn't deliver 54Mbps and 20Gb hard disks aren't really 20Gb, here's another case where you'll need to read the small print very carefully to get to the truth.
Still, even 16Mbps would hit the spot !
