Plusnet ditch fair usage for contention

  absent 20:46 22 Apr 2005

I have an email saying my contention will be 30:1 down from 50:1

Following our recent announcements about the implementation of the proposed fair usage system, we have taken the decision not to implement fair usage. This decision is in no small part due to the changing broadband market and the requirement to ensure that a minority of customers does not continue to impact the experience for the majority.

Withdrawing the fair usage system is not a decision that has been taken lightly and alternatives have been in consideration for some time. We believe that the way to move forward is by continuing to manage our broadband service through contention.

There is no need for any isp to restrict bandwidth nor lower contention rates. They have the technology to increas the capacity if only the fat cats at the top would stop creaming and start investing!

They all began advertising Broadband as 'The always on and unlimited'. Let them put their, our, money where their mouths are.
