Low cost area and squeezed pipes?

Re this about the product refresh:
"The prices shown here are for the first 3 months. The ongoing price will then vary depending on location."
I can't work out how to tell if I am in an area where the price doesn't go up after three months.  I live in Brixton, south London. Maybe someone can tell me or show me how to find out?
Thanks.

Re: Am I in a low cost area?

My number is in "Market 3". Does that mean that my pricing would stay at 5.99?  I can't follow that great, long thread.

Re: Am I in a low cost area?

Yes, that's correct.
However, I thought that you were wanting to stay on a product that offered prioritised traffic?

I think I do. Would that 5.99 thing bw really poor for p2p and video and so on? I don't like squeezed pipes.

The value pipes are practically having every last drop of juice squeezed out unless you're just using it for browsing Tongue

Re: Am I in a low cost area?

Thanks Beautuful Ways. That is what I needed o know. So the "value" product would still be annoying when watching high quality iplayer streams and so on, even if I confine p2p to the night period?  Er, is the night period on "value" unsqueezed?

Re: Low cost area and squeezed pipes?

No, the night period is also "squeezed" down to 256Kbps according to the Expected Speeds page. Apart from download sites/servers and gaming of course. Gaming has no limits throughout the day, but download sites/servers are only limitless over night.
