It's all very well giving people the choice and I do appreciate it, but could someone from PN please explain in plain english, for the not-so-techically minded people the benefits, negative aspects and consequences of opting out of the LLU rollout or opting out of the DSLMax upgrade programme?

Is everyone going to be moved to MaxDSL unless you opt out...will the current system be maintained?


Thanks

before PN reply - there is NO BENEFIT of LLU at the moment because there is no easy way to get back to IPstream if you move to LLU. End of story.

For the majority of people, opting out of the Max upgrades doesn't bring any benefits. As Max will give you a better speeds both for downloading and uploading. Though there is a small chance that on some lines the customer might see a slight drop in speed, and its these people that are going to want to opt out of the upgrades.

LLU is a different matter, as it most respects its exactly the same as BT's ADSL offering. Where it differs, is the potential for a faster upload speed than regular Max. and as it becomes more widely available you could also get speeds hgiher than 8Mbps. Though again some people wish to opt out, either because they've had a bad experience with Tiscali in the past, or because they're not happy with the fact that in the short term there's no easy way to move back from LLU to BT's IPStream.

Thanks Jon Cool

I understand now, got my fingers crossed for the MaxDSL upgrade then Wink

*Edit, I've just opted out of the LLU, I don't like the sound of not being able to have the choice or change ADSL provider Wink
