If BT continue to invest then gaming should be fine.  If they decide to hold fire then problems will arise & they will lose customers.  I've a feeling that BT will continue investing though as it's in their best interests.

Kind regards... Tom

I hope BT do not end up like VM having utilisation problems in nearly every exchange in london and populated areas.

 

Other than that doesn't really make much difference to me, the step from 100gb to 300gb was enough for me πŸ˜›

Hi everyone

 

Yes, this is true! BT Total Broadband and BT Infinity customers will benefit from the removal of Fair Usage Policy (FUP) controls when they begin to be removed from April 2011. Once removed, heavy user customers will be able to download/stream as much as they wish without having their speeds restricted.

 

BT will remove the FUP controls currently applied to customers with β€˜atypical’ usage. Today atypical users are restricted at 300GB usage and account for less than 0.5% of the BT customer base. BT will not target any individuals with restrictions based on usage levels. However, we still have traffic management policies that will restrict certain applications / protocols, such as P2P, when the network is busy.

 

As BT continues to invest in the network and network bandwidth we can now remove these restrictions and ensure the experience of the wider customer base.

 

(Note that charges will still apply for going over limits on BT Total Broadband Options 1&2 and BT Infinity Option 1 but traffic will not be managed.)

 

Thx

Kerry


Thats great! NOW stop lying to ISP's and saying that an exchange VP is " green" when it's crippled at peak times. And do something about it too - "thx"

I assume you are referring to BT wholesale who are responsible for VP's not BT retail as you are implying also a VP can go from green to red overnight and it takes time to update data on web sites
