ADSL24 Reveals Early 24Mbps (ADSL2+) Broadband Pricing

Posted: 24th May, 2008 By: MarkJ
Entanet vISP ADSL24 has just become one of the first providers to reveal its pricing for the new BT Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC) based 'up to' 24Mbps ADSL2+ services. The pricing itself is similar to existing 8Mbps (BT MAX) based Entanet services, albeit with a few caveats:

ADSL24 / Entanets ADSL2+ 24Mbps Broadband Prices

On the surface Entanet / ADSL24's new packages look very similar to the old ones, with the obvious exception of speed improvements and a respectable increase to on-peak usage allowances.

However, readers have noted (forum post) an important caveat with the removal of off-peak caps in favour of "unlimited" terminology. Entanet has made a significant reduction to the periods where off-peak now applies:

8Mbps Off-Peak Package Definition
Off-peak is defined as 22:00 to 08:00 weekdays and Friday 22:00 through to Monday 08:00.

24Mbps Off-Peak Package Definition
Off-peak is defined as 1am to 7am seven days a week and offers unlimited usage with no fair usage policy.

The new periods appear to be quite impractical unless you use a download manager to start your file transfers automatically. This would also require customer computers to be left on for many hours and could eat up a lot of expensive electricity.

It's worth pointing out that Entanet DOES NOT apply a 'Fair Usage Policy' (FUP) to their new "unlimited" 24Mbps off-peak usage periods and the measures could help to improve peak-time network performance by lowering load levels in the evening.

For comparisons sake, most Entanet vISP's currently sell an 8Mbps package with 30GB Peak and 300GB Off-Peak usage (old method) for £19.99 per month. The new 24Mbps equivalent will get you 35GB Peak and Unlimited Off-Peak for the same price, albeit with drastically reduced off-peak hours.
