Evolution of products at Eclipse
Monday 10 April 2006 14:58:00 by Andrew Ferguson

Eclipse is one of the latest providers to embrace the up to 8Mbps line speed products available now. Two new ranges of products replace the previous ranges, a fixed price package, and a service with inclusive usage bundles and top-ups. All the products are now available as an up to 8Mbps line speed, with the performance of your individual line governing what actual maximum throughput is possible.

The Evolution Broadband packages comes in four flavours, with the options determining what sort of fair usage limits you get, and the sort of priority your traffic will get at peak times. The fair use policy which only applies to the Evolution products can be read here. It looks like only the major traffic groups like P2P, FTP and USENET (newsgroups) will be targetted under the policy limit. It is also worth noting that only usage in the peak hours of 6pm to midnight counts toward the limit.

The Home Broadband range is a bit simpler to understand, and includes a usage allowance bundle, with usage above the bundled amount charged at £1.75 per GigaByte.
