I'm no expert on this (as you'll see from my post) and i do understand that Eircom are expensive as ****...but im still wondering why in Europe they are cheap and have no limits.
Contention ratios are 48:1? Why dont you just put less people on the lines. Say max it out at 30 (or create another product with higher cost but less contention). Can't you just request from Eircom to only stick 30 people on this particular line as they pay more for their medium-heavy usage.
1: So you might have one product at 47.50 witha contention at 48:1 with 5 gig cap.
2: And another product with 24:1 (or sommet) for €80. (or whatever increase in price is needed to cover the costs for the medium-heavy users. Chuck on a 'fair play' agreement on it where you'll be contacted if you go overboard too often by too much.
3:A gamers one where you have a higher cap (but still one for all the updates etc) but where you attempt to guarantee low pings to places like Jolt.co.uk or wherever. Either by using more expensive routing or whatever. Then stick on a correct price for the better routing (if possible) and the slighlty higher cap. (if this worked, all gamers capable of getting it probably would as long as the price wasn't too high. Thats quite a large amount of ppl imo)
Wouldnt that work?i dont understand why it has
to be 48:1. Eircom said so? Well just request less people put on each and pay for the extra ones for the people who want a better product.
Basically im asking for Tier'd products. if what im asking is outta the question please explain why. Would LLU the lines for the heavy users be better?
Seems fairly easy to me but i guess thats why im not in an ISP
Comments plz, or questions if you dont understand what im getting at.
