Considering NDO - A Few Questions

As some of you probably know I'm not happy with my current adsl provider, and as such will be cancelling next month. So I'm doing some research......

I'm seriously considering NDO, but I've got a few of questions:

1. Is their Home 500 Lite service (here ) IPstream or Datastream - the only reason I ask is because the activation fee is half that of the normal Home 500 product.

2. Are download speeds for the Home 500 Lite and Home 500 likely to be the same? i.e. is the lite product more highly contented desite both products being quoted as being 50:1 ?

3. Are there download limits on these packages?

Hello

I'm an NDO user, here are my best guess answers; your probably better off asking at www.ndousers.com as you will find NDO staff online there most of the time who can answer these sorts of questions.

1. Is their Home 500 Lite service (here ) IPstream or Datastream - the only reason I ask is because the activation fee is half that of the normal Home 500 product.

All NDO Products are IPStream using their own BT central pipes - and they have another 155mb pipe coming online this month.

2. Are download speeds for the Home 500 Lite and Home 500 likely to be the same? i.e. is the lite product more highly contented desite both products being quoted as being 50:1 ?

I think they are, the lite refers more to the list of features (eg: no email or webspace included; you can still use NDO's smtp servers to send however!) and the very generous 10gb per week bandwidth limit on lite.

3. Are there download limits on these packages?
Only on home500lite - at 10gb per week/40gb per month.
home500 and home1000 are all unlimited; unrestricted.

As you already have ADSL; NDO do some stonking Migration offers -
512k at £19.99 a month - no migration fee and its unrestricted.
1mb at £31.99 a month again, no migration fee and no bandwidth restrictions.

All you need to do is get your MAC number from your current ISP and then wait about 5 to 10 days for the migration to happen.

Cheers lighterboy. The only problem I can see is with the migration - you can't migrate datastream to ipstream. I'll have to get CP to disconnect me, and I'll have to sign up with NDO and pay an activation fee.

Hmmm... looks good so far. :)
