Yeah I'm in Wales and my ping is beating XMS' at the mo! I used to have Internet provided by the people I work for, but since moving ISP, I've received a nice reliable connection, good reliable customer service, great speeds (for 1M and LOOOW pings!

And yeah I download a fair bit and connection is being used a lot, my download amounts don't really top 15GB....

IDNET ftw! :rocker: :rocker:

Yeah it's more than likely leased equipment which you will need to return to avoid getting mad big fee's.

Some of the guys here can suggest some good hardware for ya though!

Heh, I could fill 30Gb a month easily. 2Gb I could fill in like 4 days. I also download a lot more **** than a lot of people. IDNet does seam to be quite an awesome provider though. Speed is expensive over there, I thought it was expensive here. 6Mbit/384Kbit for about $45 unlimited bandwith is what I have myself.

perhaps not, atleast over here the hardware is either paid for or given away for free BUT its not uncommon to make a 1year contract either.

2 1/2 years ago i had problems with my connection and ended up with a brand new cablemodem as it COULD be a failing modem but wasnt so now i have 2 but one i cannot use, to old.

2gb is what i sometimes download in less than an hour.

30gb i can easily download in a day.

I am currently with plusnet who have a usage policy which I love.

Its a usage policy that is 10gb peak time usage (4pm till midnight) and unlimited off peak usage (after midnight till 4pm) so if I ever want to download something I just use my home server which is restricted to start downloading at midnight and finish at 4pm. So I never hit the peak time usage and I can use as much offpeak as I want . Obviously the pings are not as good as idnet on your CSS server but on any other server I get the normal pings of around 29 - 31ms.

Although I am having a good time at plusnet, My mate is having a nightmare and is changing to idnet in the next few weeks

I dont want to change as I am currently happy with plusnet and would have to pay £67 if I left due to free modem charge (which I sold lol) and activation when I moved house and then obviously the extra £3.50 p/m that idnet charges.
