Worth changing to Extra?

I have Broadband Your Way 3 at the moment. Is it worth changing to Extra? Because it is quite a bit cheaper...
I can't see what the difference is for the money I'm paying. Can I change product using the online pages?
Thanks.

Check the traffic management in case it reduces the speeds of services you use at certain times.

Where can I see the traffic management details? And does that not apply to BBYourWay then?

A pictorial comparison of traffic-management on the two products is available in PUG's comparison tool here.

@spraxyy - That PUG's comparison tool is wonderful - it tells me exactly what I need to know. You win a big slice of Internet.  Smiley

Just to say that it looks like BBYW3 offers me the best balance of service for the price. I would save £2.00pm, but I often work from home and have to grab FTPs etc. and need good 9am-5pm performance.
I'm no richer but I'm happy.  Cool

What is quite 'shocking' is how much BROADband isn't very broad at all...  Huh

Narrowband you mean? Have to agree after seeing how 'Extra' is less in many instances but hope PN address this in their upcoming refresh Wink

We have no refresh planned at the moment and these sort of things are secret until the day of launch Smiley

I'm on a Market 2 exchange. I get no special favours for that, right?  Sad
