More bandwidth for you all!

More bandwidth for you all!

Nom nom nom Yes, that's right we've activated another 155Mbps segment of central capacity. This is hot on the heels of the last segment we lit under 2 weeks ago. All the data you send and receive from your broadband connection travels across these segments of capacity so basically what we're saying is that we've just increased the amount of bandwidth that's available to you all. new_segment2The new segment went live this morning and we've already a couple of hundred or so customers connected to it as can be seen in the picture on the right. We add extra bandwidth in line with financial forecasting, projected growth of customer numbers and traffic trends on the network over time. This extra bandwidth will help accommodate the last of our LLU customers as we move them back to the BT Wholesale network. Anybody connecting to the new segment will have their traffic routed via the gateway known as pcl-ag03. When new capacity is added to the network, it can take time for the network to balance and for a representative proportion of the customer base to connect to the new segment. In order to speed up this process we may need to briefly disconnect some broadband subscribers from the Internet. If we decide to do this we'll announce the details on our service status feed nearer the time.

Sorry if I'm sounding a bit dumb but does this mean we will be getting an increase on our allowances A few months ago I thought that 15gb a month was plenty but I'm having to restrict myself and my son's usage and were by no means heavy users. It seems that the net in general becomes more and more bandwidth hungry as time goes on
