I think the difference is you are on 448kbps upload and Tam is on 832 kbps upload as a full business package

That's the small business package. The more than 10 pcs package has the higher upload.

There's a couple of legacy products with the higher upload (Max Premium). Teleworker/Homeworker Pro, Business PAYG and some of the old Premier/PAYG 2Mbps accounts that were provisioned on IPStream Office 2000 (now Max Premium).

Weren't they the ones that had to pay an extra 5 to stay on Office 2000 once the ordinary 2000 became available?

Yeah, well 10. Everyone provisioned on Office 2000 was given the choice of staying on Office 2000 for an extra tenner or switching to Home 2000. Most chose to switch but some stayed on Office 2000 and were upgraded to Max Premium.

I seem to remember the wholesale price of max premium is not a great deal more than standard,is there a possiblity of PAYG premium for an extra charge.

I have a feeling it's been suggested before but I can't remember what the answer was (other than not at the moment), let me get back to you.

Answer is that it is certainly something we are looking at, probably in the second phase of the product refresh.

Its something well worth looking at - a few other ISPs such as enta/vispa offer this type of product and it seems quite popular.  The fact that you already have quite a few of the old 2Mb 20:1 ers who chose to pay extra to remain on the products shows there perhaps is a market for such a product.

I would have thought it would also be of interest to the teleworker type accounts.

Indeed. It fits in very well with the model we are creating, but there's a limit on the number of things we can do all in one go, but it's definately in for the second phase because as you say there are people that do want it because they take up this type of product with other ISPs and indeed already with us. Definately watch this space.

When looking around, I was surprised to see a business account (Max Premium) giving 5 GB peak (0800-2000) and 45 GB off peak for 23.50 inc VAT.  That could be tempting for many home users whose daytime traffic is limited by being out at work/study, without attracting the heavier peer-to-peer type users...

Certainly with Pipex (and thus Bulldog) being potentially up for sale I will be reconsidering what to do on my second line (Bulldog seemed a nice option, to have a non-BT connection, and Easynet/Sky has no plans to install at my exchange, which is a shame... Claranet off-peak with no daytime traffic {except DNS lookups - handy to know the connection is still 'good'} and no limit on off-peak is still an option, but needs quarterly or annual payments and is a 12 month contract, AFAIK)
