Yabanize:ScottHoogerbrug:Yabanize: Well, Big pipe does $79 and they don't have traffic management. So around that mark? Have you considered removing the traffic management like orcon has?
They do actually re BigPipe.We have a traffic management policy which allows us to prioritize time-sensitive traffic (e.g. VOIP and gaming) over non time-sensitive traffic (e.g. peer to peer) at busy times. See our no data cap FAQ for more details. We have not currently implemented this but may choose to do so in the future.
May means we will at any point...
In regards to dropping it completely, we feel it's a better way to maintain a high quality service. 30% of our sales join our No Data Cap plan so must be doing something right :)
Arguably Orcon's approach of simply adding more international bandwidth can have it's own issues - if you don't have enough everything slows, not just P2P etc.
Ahh I see, I see may as we will only do it if we have to, and so far they havnt needed to, and they hope not to It says on their site "We don't have a fair use policy based on the amount of GBs you can download. If people start doing stupid things that hurt the network, we might have to implement something, but it will only be to stop people being unfair. Please play nice. "
How much does flips traffic manangement affect p2p though? Just wondering, will it slow down to a crawl?
We're kind of in the same boat. We have it but it's hardly ever used, maybe once last month.
We'll slow p2p to 128k if needed.
