I do prefer the current off-peak period and don't like this change (I'd rather a change from 10pm-10am).
I go to work form morning till 5pm in the evening.
With the current off-peak period, I can use some part of my off-peak quota after 12am, but if it changes to 2am it is impossible for me to use it.

I too think it's a good idea, I rarely use my off peak allowance and this would help make a dent in it.

Not happy with any change to the Offpeak times that make them later than they presently are.
10PM to 10AM would be better than anything if it had to change. Otherwise, I am extremely happy to stay with 12AM to 12PM.

Great change, this means that we can still enjoy lag free gaming and fast net speeds at around 12 where theres still quite a fair amount of users still online.

I would prefer the off peak period to 2pm to 2am, instead of the proposed time. Otherwise, I'd prefer the time to remain unchanged.

For example....
Option 1 11pm - 11am
Option 2 12am - 12pm
Option 3 1am - 1pm
Option 4 2am - 2pm


Thus allowing more flexibilty that's better suited to individual clients.

This may also allow a staggering effect to prevent or reduce the 'mid-night express' effect that would only move to 2am should you keep that idea.

Choice is why I chose exetel in the first place, and a better choice is what you offered then, and to some point, still do now. Since your plan change to penalize new ADSL1 customers that are unable to get ADSL2, perhaps providing a little more of that good choice that we all expect from exetel... It may go a long way.

I myself get home from work at 1am, so I would probably choose the 1am to 1pm off-peak period. My on-peak time rarely fills beyond half of the allowed 54gb allowance.

Thinking about that, Nobody else offers a choice quite like this....


Ultimately your going to do what you want to anyway....
could be worth a months trial exetel and see what your graph looks like

that would be much better and would please everyone.
Why not ask for 12MN to 12MN.?
12 Hours of offpeak seems to me to be very generous of Exetel.
Most ISP's offer about 6 to 8 hours.

We all know what you and most other inconsiderate users are ready to do....Change it to schedule start at 2am, for me, home at 1am, and on the slowdown at 2am... yay....


A simple honesty system where everyone (Thats torrents at midnight) agree's to download after say 3am, would ultimately archive the exact same result, Unfortunately, we don't live in a perfect world, and some people just don't care about anyone but themselves....

Hi All, Why not change Eastern off peak time too 24:00 to 12:00 and leave Western times as thy are. This should help the slow down problem at Midnight.
Regards horties :D

Sounds like a good idea, Set it up!

Hopefully it means I can get another 2 hours of gaming in before I start red-barring.

As I am retired the extra 2hrs off-peak after midday would be great.
