I have just migrated from an ISP that gave me only a 512k connection but guarenteed no contention.
For the same price per month, my new ISP allows me 2mb connection (altough I can only use 1Mb on my phone line) for the same price as my old ISP. However, there is a 1:30 contention on the line.
What does this mean to me in real-terms? How will I be impacted? Does the extra bandwidth more than compensate for the amount of contention on the line? Which is the better deal (bearing in mind they are the same price per month)?
Thanks very much.
