Hi,

Based on your usage I don't think you'd be losing out if you switched across. Option 3 will give you plenty of spare usage if you start using more in the future and of course save you a couple of quid. Best thing to do is have a read through the product pages:

1MB? did your mean 1GB (Gigabyte)?

Given your usage figures I suspect large downloads, gaming and other stuff is pretty small so I would seriously consider option 2 and make more savings. You will need to look at the speed limits of both option 2 & 3 and decide which would suit you. If its mainly browsing and email then even option 1 could be used and pay for additional GBs as you go.

You could try the lowest for a month, see how it is and if it does not suit, move up a level and try again. ALso remember the included usage is for peak time only (4pm -> midnight) hence why option 1 could still do what you want.

Assuming that the off-peak usage is also between 0800-0000hrs then you're probably best off on the new option one with one additional gigabyte prepaid (I assume it is going to be possible to do this on a rolling basis?)

This will cost you £10.74 every month compared to the £21.99 you're paying at the moment.

Due to the way Broadband Your Way is structured you'll get exactly the same "Value Added Services" as you do on your account on the moment.

Option one is only really suitable for web browsing and e-mail, so you'd be better off on option two if you game, stream video/music or run any kind of P2P/frequent downloads - although looking at your usage it seems highly unlikely (if you don't know what any of these are, you're not using them).
