Remember that they have Sky/UKOnline and Be/O2 to compete with, so they have to price accordingly, though Be* still looks more attractive...The prices look a little too cheap so either they will work on less profits making the service suffer or they willget as amny signed up as possible then put up the prices...
The 1am - 7am peak hours will apply to weekends as well, so we would be losing about 52 hours of off-peak time per week, which is a LOT. Losing the equivalent of 2 days per week of off-peak time is not even remotely worth the extra 5GB per month peak allowance. :hrmph:
I assume that these new peak time hours would apply to all the other Enta resellers as well?
I think you've got your maths a bit sqewed. If you got full speed you can hit over 10GB per hour, for six hours a day, 30 days a month, that's over 1.8TB per month in off-peak allowance. Even at 10mbps, it's 4.5GB per hour or 810GB per month.even on an outstanding connection, downloading at full speed for 6 hours per day, it would only be physically possible to clock up something like 300+GB per month, which is what you get now even on Enta's current basic package.
Those only managing to hit something like 10mb would be physically limited to less than 200GB off-peak per month, which is much less than the 300GB they could get now.
Nobody is going to get full speed on WBC, just like they dont get it on ADSL Max. I used 18mb as an example of an "outstanding" connection, which is a little more realistic.I think you've got your maths a bit sqewed.

Which is a pity since bandwidth is supposed to be cheaper at wholesale on 21CN. I suppose it's down to whether ISPs use this as a chance to increase profit margins rather than increase user benefits.even though speeds are going to rise, usage allowances are not
Package wise you can stay on the package you are on, we are actively moving customers to 21cn on the existing packages. ...
