Well.. I finally got fed up with Be* and their seemingly regular downtime on Sundays. The service is nothing special really and to be honest is no better than plusnet.

So I'm thinking of BBYW option 3 - I used to be Premier option 1 but I do recall there being a few issues with gaming - is this still the case?

Sorry to hear your experience with Be* has not been great. Indeed you are not the first person to have mentioned that - but it's great that you've decided to come back.

Gaming is treated with the highest priority on our network, so unless you're using a rarely used game - or a non-standard port - you should find that you actually get the best service possible.

The exception to this is where we cannot detect your traffic as gaming traffic (fairly rare) and therefore do not give it the prioritisation that it benefits from. In most of these cases, however, providing it's a reasonable request, we can work with you to get that corrected.

If there is anything else at all that we can help with - do give us a shout!

Oh - and as an addition to that - these are the games that we definately detect and prioritise on the network :

Unfortunately, that list is not quite exhaustive - and indeed could do with an update. I'll see if we can arrange that some time this week.

It's me.. (gotdsl) Cheesy

Is it possible to "migrate in" with a MAC code I have from Be*? It's in the format of LLLV*******/***** - can this be used or is it a new provide? :?

Should be a migration. If you use the migration path and enter the MAC key it should be processed for you.
