BROADBAND+ speed

Hi i am thinking about getting broadband+ (14.99)

Can anyone tell me the actual speeds they get on this service for games and download (P2P).

This package seams idea for me as it is cheap. I live at university most of the year and am getting the broadband for my parents who only surf and check e-mails. But i want to be able to used the internet for P2P and games when i am at home.

This package is the same price as the dial up we get currently, so it will be an improvement what-ever the speeds.

thank you

BROADBAND+ speed

Don't get BB plus if you want to do much P2P.
There was one person this morning reporting download speeds of 6kB, if I remember, on a 2Mb line, whereas on the Premier, we regularly get 200kB and more with plenty of seeds and peers.

It will do it, if money matters a lot, but I'd only count on it to be slow.

BROADBAND+ speed

The connection I am on at the moment is Broaband Plus.

It's nice and speedy for web surfing, but when the network is at it's busy, you can't expect much more than 56k speeds for P2P.

I would recommend signing up to Plus initially however, as you can see for yourself, and then upgrade to Premier for free if you need to (this change is instant).
