Freeserve to Wanadoo capped service

  greenlamp 23:08 28 Apr 2004

It seems that one of the immediate benefits!! of the change from Freeserve to Wanadoo is a capped broadband service (15 hours per day max. 15GB download per month) as opposed to the unlimited Freeserve Broadband. While I expect this may meet my requirements I feel that on principle I should be looking elsewhere for my broadband. What are peoples views on their ISP's

Pipex all the way.

I have ntl B/B got no complaints never heard of limit on downloads on any B/B service could be a problem if you use it to it's full potential that the ISP's are always banging on about when trying to get us to part with our money and sign up!

Where have you read the daily restriction?

This webpage seems to be offering an 'always on connection' but perhaps they don't mean what we mean! click here

My understanding is that the service restrictions only apply to customers signing up from today - 28 April 2004.

Yep! The new price plans do seem to infer a cap on downloads. The previous 512k service was uncapped but now says 2mb per month limit.

  Djohn 23:27 28 Apr 2004

2 gb per month, not mb.

  roy 23:30 28 Apr 2004

Yes, but I can't see a reference to capping time on to 15 hours a day.

If you click on the "what does this mean" about halfway down the page it brings up the new terms.

Alan2 where have you read that the limitations will only apply to new subscriptions, I can't find any reference to this, either in the email I received. On the Wanadoo site the nearest I can find is that the restrictions will only come into full force later in the year.

Ugh! Have just found what you are referring to.

It looks a bit ominous although I see it is for a new broadband of 512 for £17.99 per month.

Metering broadband!!

Go here - click here & click on the 'What does this mean?' link. Surfing - 15 hours a day (the middle option).
