this got me wondering whether my ISP is on datastream or IP stream?

Also would this make much difference to BT's Max DSL scheme which will be up and running within a month (unless there are delays).

Thanks hzhzhz ;)

I am under the impression that datastream isn't as good as IP stream?

Does anyone know if this is true and also if it makes any difference which one you are on when BT launch their Max DSL scheme in a few weeks time i.e would being on the wrong connection type compromise your chances of getting a faster broadband connection?

It seems I am at a disadvantage being on datastream then?

I find it strange that I hardly suffer any slowdowns to that extent as I usually get around 964 kb from my 1 mb connection which isn't too bad really.

Thanks Djohn.

I am still not sure which connection I am on but I won't worry about it.

I think I have a better understanding between the 2 types of connections. Thanks :)
