£24.99 Product?

I posted this in another thread but has been buried by the other replies so I will post it again here:

Since it will cost the same to provision an 8MB line as a 2MB why not give us a 8MB service for £24.99 along with the SUP, the extra £3 could go towards more bandwith so we get the best of both worlds I calculate you would need about 50,000 customers on this product before you could buy a new pipe over and above what you would normally, but I don't think it would take long if you marketed it properly and informed all existing customers who've not opted out then it wouldn't take long to reach that figure.

you could call it SUPPER Broadband :razz:

Although the rental for the line would be the same, I don't think that an extra £3 would be enough for the amount of usage you could get down on an 8MB line, SUP'd or not.

Right put it this way if the people on a 8mb product would stick to 100GBanytime or 30GB peak time would this be viable?

Think of it as a product for those who want a fast connection but not to download a lot. i.e. between bb+ an premier 8mb

Actually... I see where you are coming from now. You've added usage levels much like the FUP had.

Why can't we get 8Mb for £21.99, with the current sustainable levels?

because you would need new pipes for the increase of everyones speed.

even though fup is same the peak usage would spike by like 4times it current value if the heavies were on.

think that is what cs dude is on about am i right?

Hmmm.....but if peak is restricted to 30Gb, then you will know you can't max it out during this time to avoid being restricted. And given that anything you do download on 8Mb will download faster, it should heavily affect the network at all really.

Well, this is certainly an interesting suggestion. I've passed this on to the relevant people.

It is, in effect, exactly what the FUP was doing. Now that has been scrapped, but you've brought something back in that is virtually the same.

Yes, so long as you don't go over 30GB of peak time use in a month. Judging by your response I probably call supper something different to you to me supper is a big snack / light meal before bed, i guess to you it is dinner as in an evening meal?

Per the Compact Oxford English Dictionary

"supper"

a light or informal evening meal.


Food for thought! :twisted:

Moving this to Ideas and Suggestions as I feel it would be more suited there.
