Demon Home 1000

Just got myself upgraded to Demon's new 1.1mbs offering.
Any comments out there at all?
I, myself am very happy, can't complain at all to be honest!

Personally been with Demon since around 1993 (eek!) and feel many lost out on the progression kind of thing! I can recall my state of the art Zoltrix (not UK permitted!) 14.4k modem, then 28.8, 33.6 and finally V92 56k modems.
Then could not believe when I had the chance to do trials for adsl!
Needless to say when they finished it was backwards to 512k broadband.
Now the latest 'Home' offering and although a wait it's impressive! :D

What I would comment is that many think 'oh look at those speeds' BUT miss the point they are potential! With 50:1 contention ratios you can end up thinking that 1 or 2 mb will be what it says when in fact it can be the same as 512k at times :(

I was with Demon since 1996 but finally left them for Eclipse in December 2004 (initially on FLEX500 now using their Home Broadband service) as I got fustrated with waiting for them to offer anything other than a 512kbs service for home users (when other ISP's had started offering 2mb connections). It was a sad parting of the ways for me since I'd always had reliable and helpful service from Demon.

All things considered I'm happy with the move, however, as I believe that many other ISP's now offer better VFM (some of them also are without caps and offer fixed IP addresses). I see Demon as more of a specialist ISP now and their prices (along with the 12 month contract) reflect that level of service and features.
