Plusnet Value and Gaming on the Wii

Does anyone have any experience gaming on plusnet value?  I am thinking of changing my product from Broadband Your Way Option 2 to Plusnet Value but was worried about the gaming performance.
The only gaming we do is 2-3 hours per week on Mario Kart Wii.
Any advice gratefully received.

Re: Plusnet Value and Gaming on the Wii

as for the wii traffic geting prioity on the PN network its the same across all products. there is a 2mb speed cap 24/7 on value gaming but its the same for the old unlimited usage package which am on and my xbox is fine (trust me i moan an moan some more when latency is bad  Smiley )
so your only worrie is usage allowence of 15gb on bbyw2 droping to 10gb, but you have your VMBU on bbyw2 to see what your current usage is.
also you may want to look at the diffrence in traffic shaping http://www.kitz.co.uk/isp/plusnet_shaping2.htm
P2P is rate limited 24/7 so you wouldnt get line speed on that over night as you do on bbyw2 also usenet and ftp

I wouldn't expect you to have any problems at all.
Online gaming on the Wii should be absolutely fine.

When I was on value, gaming was perfect. Never had a problem.
