Faster ADSL. Why...

Hello.

Its 3am in the morning, so this will not be up to much, but with hope you will understand as my points are pretty dam simple.

I have one line in my house.
I have ADSL. Im Happy.

I have one line in my house.
I want faster ADSL!

It costs more to upgrade the line.
It is cheaper to get another line in

Why does it cost me £90Per month for a dam 1mbit connection from Plusnet, where i will prolly only get the same upload (30kb). Why is it cheaper for me to get another line in, and another home package.

WHY! WHY! WHY!

Upstream speeds are the same for all ADSL packages on plusnet about (30kb), its only the downstream speeds that change from 512k to 2mbs on business packages.

I think upstream speeds change when you go onto leased lines but they take a big jump in price though

Good Afternoon,

Because the contention ratio of the 1Mb connection is 20:1 and not 50:1 (i.e. 20 users sharing 1Mb rather than 50 users sharing the 500Kb).

See the BT price list below for further information.

Section 1 & 2 are for BT install products, sections 9 & 10 are Self Install products.
