Premiere or BBYW?

I am currently on Broadband Premiere 3 (I think it is 3) and pay £40 per month. I get under 30GB of peak time usage and whatever I want to use between midnight-4pm.
Would I be saving myself money by going for BBYW option 4? That costs £30 with 40GB of usage but will that still let me use off peak bandwidth without it going towards my allowance?
I game on xbox Live and sometimes do see lag. So am I on the wrong product?

Peak time for the BBYW products is 8AM to midnight rather than 4PM to midnight with BB Premier 3.  However the full 40GB is available on BBYW Option 4 before management kicks in whereas this occurs from 27GB on BB Premier 3.
Usage during the off-peak time (midnight to 8AM) remains free.

Re: Premiere or BBYW?

This depends entirely on how much you use between 8am and 4pm.  If this is a considerable amount, I'd recommend staying on your current product.
If you think you do 40GB or under between 8am and midnight, then BBYWo4 is the product for you.

Re: Premiere or BBYW?

Ok thanks for your reply. Are both packages giving gaming packets priority or does one favour the gamer over the other?
