Contention And Its Meaning?50:1 20:1 etc

Hiya, next week (hopefully :roll: :lol: ) I'll be gettin the 1MB 50:1 service installed...


Just a question, my exchange was enabled on the 8th of this month, does the 50:1 mean, in my AREA of people, ill be on a 50:1 basis, or does it mean the whole of Plusnet server, ill be with up to 49 other people at a time via Plusnet, or is it via my local exchange?

In otherwords, if im the only one using plusnet, am I in theory on a 1:1 ratio??

Another Q is, if im on this 1mb service, how much of a 'hammering' will it suffer, in otherwords, if Im just surfing the net and downloading the odd driver etc, yet joe bloggs and his 20 mates are downloading 2gb files lol...

The contention ratio means that you share the link through the BT network along with 50 people or 20 people depending on the package you are signed up to.

These people include those from other ISPs as well as any on PlusNet.

Hope that answers your query.
