    Its all very well - but as soon as you hit your download limit - you're throttled back so hard you may as well not have bothered.

    Meh they can even deliver the 20 meg one properly and they want to go up to 200... They need to improve the service they are suppose to be providing.

    I've always had my full allocation for 9 years now, nevermind what I was on I always got the full amount I should.

    Having said that, as pointed out above, it's pointless once you've reached the limits they impose these days.

    Ridiculous.

    Apparently by bonding four 50mbit/sec channels into one, you get a 200mbit/sec service.
    if you have the cache..
