So what exactly did i spen the £11.75 for ?

So after signing up and finding that I will have to pay for the modem that I didn’t need but though hey it's free may as well have it , though obviously I should have read the T&C more closely (however from browsing the forums find I’m not the only one )and then finding that even though I only occasionally use P2P when I do it's a joke of 3 to 5 k

I also find that I have to pay a disconnection fee or rather the referred connection fee

so what have I gained (saved money wise) by paying for a monthly contract ?

On the Up side I can browse the web and download files from sites at a good speed , with no limits supposedly

all the best

Hi,

The £11.75 that you paid for a monthly contract is so that you can cancel within the first year by just giving thirty days notification, and you wouldn't have to pay any outstanding ammounts towards the annual contract.

Are you on broadband plus or premier. If plus then as the terms and signup page state it is unsuitable for p2p.

I though when I signed up it said only suitable for low usage of P2P !

The info page at the moment says...

Broadband Plus is not suitable for data-intensive applications such as file-sharing and large downloads. If you want to use these applications, take a look at Broadband Premier or Broadband Pay As You Go.

... which suggests that p2p won't work at all.

This may have changed recently though.

It will work... but slowly. Hence it's not geared for that type of usage.
