Stability options and enhanced traffic weighting

Hi guys,
We're looking to try placing a few orders on the stability options:
Standard (which we're doing already)
Stable
SuperStable
As well as offering the enhanced traffic weighting option which basically offers improved traffic priority across the BT Network.
These will be offered free of charge for the duration of the trial.
The enhanced stability options refer to the aggressiveness of the DLM.  We'd like to try on both very good lines, aswell as using longer one.  Before you worry too much, a member of staff has been trialling superstable for me.  He's actually gone from a sync speed of 17.1Mbps to 17.5Mbps!
Please drop me a PM if you are interested.

And what happens after the trial pay up or lose it? I think it's time those of us on the trial should be told how we stand before volunteering for anything else.

Re: Stability options and enhanced traffic weighting

George,
We haven't planned for what we do afterwards.
I suspect it'll be similar to Max Premium, an extra fiver a month or something similar.  Either way, given how easy it is to turn it off, I don't think it's either critical or that it should be a concern.
The extra stability options would be charged for.

Mate, you've misunderstood me.
We get chanrged extra for enhanced traffic performance, but not for the additional stability options.

for the viewers at home do we or do we not get charged for the stability options when the trial ends?  Smiley Smiley
as you said in PM one of those days

Re: Stability options and enhanced traffic weighting

Ok.  I'll try again Smiley
During the trial, we're not going to charge for a change in service level (stability option) or prioritisation (elevated traffic weighting).
My understanding is that we do not get charged more for the change in service option, but we do for the enhanced weighting.
I can't see anything on that spreadsheet that suggests service levels are charged extra for.

Re: Stability options and enhanced traffic weighting


Paying 'extra' to get stability just sounds wrong in principle.
Stability is a given, if it is not stable indicates a fault of poor quality line ... these are both most likely due to BTW lack of investment, it would be worng for them to charge you more to make up for their oversight.
