Contentions

I'll stand correcting on this but I don't think contention ratios are used any more, everything revolves around traffic prioritisation now.

Contentions

They are still used, its just BT & PN have decided not to publisize it anymore. PAYG, BB+ and premier are all 50:1 BT contended products. It;s plusnet contention on their BT centrals that differed between the products and this got so confusing its no wonder they stopped quoting it.

The hardware in the exchange and on the BT centrals is still the same so the contention rations are still there. They are also going to come into play a lot more now with the higher speed Max connections and more PN custom,ers using the same anmount of BT central bandwidth.

So fluctuations in speeds are going to be much more common.
