So, I migrated to a new ISP who are just reselling entanet's network.
£19.99 for 30 GB / 300 GB respectively, peak / off-peak.
I'm sure there are plenty of other people using similar ISPs (since they dominate ispreview's top 10 list) but I'm wondering if there is anyone out there who is having problems, or doesn't like the service they're getting? I checked out the official forum for the ISP in question and a few people are moaning about slow speeds.
Personally the only downside I've noticed is an increase in latency (ping), whereas before with AOL I could ping UK based websites with a time circa. 30ms with Entanet it has gone up to circa. 50ms.
Other than that there's a few times when the speed will drop perhaps by half during off-peak but in saying that.. I've been downloading a large set of files for the past hour at a fairly solid 800 KBps varying only a tiny bit.
That's better than my other UK based ISP, for which I pay a little bit more for a considerably smaller download allowance.
Makes you wonder. I guess you could say I'm fairly impressed :).
