It has never been a new thing to WxC services to just cut out constantly (I do not live far from the exchange), but honestly having a service you pay $100 for a month which caps their own customers (on a pay as you go 'NO' capping plan) whenever they run out of international bandwidth and tolerate everyone elses data during the day. Also providing dial up (56k) incase their services go down rarely ever works as an alternative.
Proof of tolerated/capped data:
As well as an email of a WxC representative manipulative asking me to run a local speed test (as local data is not capped). I see no real use of testing my internet connection within my own country considering the relatively low web content stored on local servers.
I have been trying to host a game server, the dynamic ip logs have given me a rough indication of the amount of times my net has cut. As well as the constant messenger loss of connection messages to help rub it in.
We urgently want to get off this expensive, 4th *lol* world country serive WxC are offering. I've come across many people experiencing constant disconnections on this forum in which the program was fixed by switching isp.
We have always experienced atleast 2-5 disconnections a day on this company in past years, the service has dramatically degraded.
The only thing holding us back from changing to a cheaper/faster/more stable isp is my dads email account, we have managed to convince him to partake in gmail.
I'm wondering if it is possible to redirect all emails from an old WxC email account or keeping access to it during isp change?
I guess this is a good lesson for others, if you want to be ahead of broadband companies and constantly switching isps do NOT use the given email accounts from your isp. It seems more of a strategy to keep customers on their product in order to receive email access to registered accounts.
Also I have heard a possible rumor? on this forum, slingshot is updating their deals at the end of the month and other isps may too. Has anyone heard any details of this? It could be a possible isp choice.
I don't think its a wiring issue as my Telecom landline keeps a stable connection without cutouts.
During writing this, my net has cut out 3 times. 4 it failed to post.
