Does current PAYG have the same traffic shaping?

Looking at option 3 ... does my current PAYG 15Gb deal have the same traffic shaping applied?

Beside the increased allowance .. is there any benefit to me?

Depends entirely on what you use the internet for.

What about the first part of the question?

This is fairly key to most of us trying to work out whether to switch or not.

In all honesty, the product you are on probably can't be beaten by any of the BBYW options. As James says, it depends on your requirements, but I should be clear that we don't expect Broadband Your Way to be better for everyone - Some customers will find their current options work better for them. That is why we are allowing everyone to stay on their existing products if they want.

Current PAYG accounts have all traffic as at least Gold, with Gaming/Voip as Titanium.

Hi there,

The main difference would be P2P/Usenet, which on PAYG is in Gold during peak and Silver during off peak.

On Option 3 P2P/Usenet is in Silver.

Thanks for all the quick replies ... would still like to hear a definitive answer ..
daytime I'm 100% surfing
nightime - I occassionally schedule some p2p downloads and FTP Uploads.

So to be clear, my question is ..
Is daytime surfing better on current PAYG compared to Option 3?


Thanks.
