ISP’s looking at Banning Youtube and Iplayer
The Internet is not Free, The Internet is not Free, The Internet is not Free … repeat until it sinks in. As you may be aware Bronco is an ISP, so it’s something that I do know about!
With the increase in high bandwidth app’s like iPlayer, YouTube and iTunes increase, I thought that the ISPs that benefited from offering cheap broadband with a free laptop and 1 years supply of beer ( last bit may have been an offering we were looking at!), then Griffin partnered with Tiscali and since then Griffins Quality of service dropped so much their business offering was just as bad as Tiscali’s home offerings
So in a recent email from our supplier Griffin, we are now informed that we need to increase of prices to customers by up to 12% and if their usage goes over 50gb a month they will have to have an extra BT line and get another adsl account ..
PlusNet recently complained that their average cost per user has tripled since the launch of the iPlayer and other leading ISPs approach the BBC for funding to off-set their increase in costs. Entanet well they aren’t bothered they offer a PAYG service? … but if the big ISP’s can’t bash out a deal Youtube in the UK may be a thing of the past ..
