im using my old bt business hgv2700 or whatever it was as i thought it would make handling the 8x IPs a bit easier but that doesnt seem to be the case.
Aslo i found the bebox would lose its connection every few hours or so.
I think Im gonna try out my dg834gt with it soon.

We have 2 connections with Be, 1 At my house and the other that was connected yesterday at my parents. Excellent connection speeds even at my distance from the exchange.

I'm a similar distance to that and was on their 24meg service, was syncing at 7.5/1.3 so switched to their 8 meg service. At £14/month i'm not complaining.

If you ring up Be Sales and tell them where you are, they will tell you what speed you can expect. If you're too far away, like saundersmatt was, and you apply for the 24mbit service they usually recommend you move down to the 8mbit one.

Just wondering if the "Be Broadband" experience is still as positive as all the talk about Tiscali has me making the move from Nildram (who are owned by Tiscali). The fact that there's a higher upload speed with Be helps but my main concern is the costing which is coming down.
Weird? Well not entirely, my experience of ISP's is that as they start dropping prices they drop quality too and a spiralling decline follows. Cynical? You betcha...
Anyway, a follow up would be appreciated..

A couple of major national outages in the last couple of months which have lasted a couple of hours, but apart from that, its great.
Truly unlimited, great support, active forum, IRC supoprt channel, etc etc. And for £22/m for the top package you cant really go wrong.
I left BT halfway through my contract and last week managed to get BT to write off the remaining 6 month bill - RESULT
As a wee side story - I cut through the main phone line into the house when I was trimming the hedge at the weekend, so decided to do some investigative work where it went etc. It took a crazy path before it got to the master socket, so I redid the main cable straight into the master socket (which is illegal I believe). Anyway, result was an increase from 9mb to 14mb and from 1mb up to 1.7mb up.
edit: PS - if you want referred, pm me and itll get you free connection.

Dare I ask what the outages were and how they were dealt with?
Re: referral, I'll let you know.. thanks for the offer

The lastest one was a route to the US went down, so google, youtube, and a couple of other major sites were unavailable for about 2 hours.
The previous problem a major routing problem that left 90% of websites unavailable. Both were fixed in a matter of hours.

I have had Be in the Past but unfortuntaly not living on my own we had to get rid as my mum wanted Virgin lol. but i can say i must be lucky to not have any problems with virgin. i have recently moved in a new house and there is no cable installed so Virgin are going to come out and install a Cable Line (dig up road etc) Free just so i can keep the service.
But if i am honest i wish i had Be back lol.

I take it all she was wanting virgin for was the TV? Id have just offered to get her Sky.

Has anyone seen anything concrete about how 'unlimited' the unlimited part of Be is? I've looked for clauses about Fair Use in the T&C etc, but obviously having a 24mb connection seems a bit pointless if you get slapped after going over say 30gb a month. I'm on a 90gb cap with 8mbit with my current ISP and do occasionally go over the limit and end up paying extra - plus the geek factor of things being really zoooomy is very tempting.
23rd September 2008, 12:17 PM #27
Truely unlimited. I average about 400gb/m
23rd September 2008, 12:32 PM #28
No nagging emails about reduce your usage/moves to a group with other heavy users etc etc?
Edit - @Geoff - does that free connection offer extend to migration? Looking like I might take you up on that if it is

Nope nothing of the sort. Yeh the free connection is valid for migration too. If you dont hear from geoff I can refer you too.
