I have in a Windows2008SBS a BES 5 Express installed that holds two BB....

I have bough an application on one of the BB, with a BES plan, that uses the internet to sync some data, as well as I have added another email account (OWA) on that BB, I noticed that the sync in the program and OWA mail is to slow, one question, all the internet traffic goes through my server or through my provider?, will the sync will be faster, on my BB application and OWA mail, if I change the plan from BES to BIS, knowing that I only need a BIS plan to sync with my BB with my exchange server with BESx 5.

Well generally BES express runs over the BIS plan, but has the advantage of being push-based hence the sync being quicker.

Pure BIS uses OWA and synchs mail (only) at a predetermined time of around 10mins depending on provider. It also passes over third party servers.

So my advice is go BIS and use BES Express. You get all the benefits less the cost. Bear in mind (I'm sure you know this already) though that BES Express doesn't support Over The Air (GPRS/Edge/3G) activation.

Tony,
Thank,

I know that it doesn´t support OTA, but because they are only two BB I don´t mind, about the money I already know, that´s why I am telling the CEO to change plans, even dough the provider dosen´t want to change it for us.

This is my problem Tony,
I have lots of trouble with orphans messages on my BB because the CEO uses iPad and Mac Mail, which my conclusion after 3 months is that these devices are causing these orphans messages, so what I did was to sync this Calendar and Contacts through BESx and his email through OWA, but the problem is that it syncs whenever he wants, sometimes is 5 minutes, sometimes is 5 hours.... so I installed a program called AstraSync which does a sync by ActiveSync, which works well, the only thing is that sometimes it takes to long to download a message, so I want to know if internet is faster having a BIS plan rather than a BES plan....

The plan is to downgrade to BIS because we reallý don´t need it, but that way I can force my provider to downgrade my plan to BIS because BES is affecting my performance.

Ah I understand.

I have to say that having had both plans in the past, they're identical in terms of speed. The deciding factor is the quality of the link on the device which will generally be far less than that of your business internet connection.

I terms of downloading messages and / or web browsing, I've never noticed one being faster or slower than the other.

I wish I could point to anything that documents it.
