broadband yourway vs premier 2

Hello

What is the difference between broadband yourway and the plus net premier 2 package?

As I am paying £29.99 for 30 Gig limit on premier 2 when I see you can get a 40 Gig limit on premier yourway for the same price.

Would it be worth going to broadband yourway or staying with what I have?

thanks

Depends on your usage habits really. BBYW Option 4 "paid for" hours are between 0800-0000hrs, whereas on Premier Option 2 "paid for" hours are 1600-0000hrs. Clearly this means you will be paying for usage for eight more hours of the day with BBYW 4, which could easily wipe out your additional bandwidth allowance if you're a heavy P2P or usenet user during these times.

For the majority of domestic users, who will be at work between 0800-1600hrs, I'd say the additional VAS (Value Added Services) and bandwidth allowances more than make up for this change.

okly dokly

well i am work mostly 9 to 5, occasionally 10-6 and do not have my pc switched on whilst at work.

and i use my bw allowance on premier 2 usually by the 2nd week

so would it be worth the change?

or leave as is?

cheers

Zippy666,

If you use a very small amount of data between 8am and 4pm, then moving to BBYWo4 would seem like a sensible option.

I can't see that you lose anything with this change based on what you've described, traffic prioritisation should work in your favour with BBYW over Premier, and you will gain 10GB usage allowance.

There may be those who'd disagree with this though.

umm actually looking through my usage, wednesdays, thursdays and fridays and sometimes mondays I use an average of 1Gig within peak time.

also I use newsgroups alot off peak, how will the bbyw work with newsgroup access?

also what speed is bbyw? as I have 8Mb premier 2 at present

just need the full facts before I make a decision to change product.

also how much will it cost to change?

thanks

good site

not sure about weekends though, as most of my downloading is between 9am and 4pm

so the free usage time at weekends will not suit me Sad

is there any plans to change the pricing on the premier 2 package?

I very much doubt it, premier packages are now legacy.
