You need to select a Usage Profile which best describes how much you think you will download from the Internet. If you are unsure, you should probably select "Home Light" or "Home Medium". It may be worth discussing this with other members of your household as some activity (e.g. downloading movies online) can increase the usage significantly. This setting will NOT affect the pricing for 'unlimited' packages.

Migration Support Inbound and Outbound
What is this?

Migration is the process of moving a broadband service from one ISP to another, usually minimising the amount of disruption in the process. Inbound migration means your ISP will allow you to transfer to their service from another ISP. Outbound migration means you can transfer from their service to another ISP.

If your ISP doesn't support migration, you would need to cancel your broadband service, wait until it's removed from your line and then re-order with another ISP. This may cost most and will result in a longer period of no connectivity.

We recommend you choose an ISP which support both inbound and outbound migration.

Reviews

I have been online since 1984 and had several ISP's during that time. Having been with iDNet for several years now I can honestly say they have been the best ISP I have been with. Great reliable connection, fast, free customer support line. Well recommended.

IDnet are a breath of Fresh Air. I was almost shocked when I received a call from them to check if my broadband had improved. Service like this is not expensive when you compare it with the angst caused by having to endure 'music' while you waste your life trying to get help from people who read scripts with foreign accents that you cannot understand etc. etc.

I've been with at least 5 ISP's in the last 8 months but iDNET is where it stopped. The speed is stable (even at peak hours), the ping is good, the network routing is good and the tech support team are very helpful (not to mention available 24/7).

Many people just look at what speed they can get when choosing an Internet provider, while this is great it's not all that makes a good experience.

The biggest issue with all the other providers I was with was the latency and network routing.
Virginmedia did not offer low latency under any package and their network router was just horrendous. All they cared about was download speed.

FTTC is not available in my area so Talktalk, Vodafone, BT, Plusnet and Sky could not offer me good speeds.

To make it even worse, when my service went live Talktalk, they enabled Interleaving after merely 2 days and was unable to revert this. For 2 weeks running I called tech support and they were unable to revert this because of DLM.
With each and every provider I switched to from there, I pretty much came across the same thing, Dynamic Line Management, Interleaving enabled etc. The only ISP's I have come across so far that were able to turn off interleaving at the customer's request was iDNET and Zen, with turned off your connection would be on a profile commonly known as 'fast path'.

Important of Good Speed (High Bandwidth):
Surfing the internet - The more speed you have, quicker the website will download and display images/images/audio.

Gaming - If you stream while gaming, you need more speed to upload to a streaming service (e.g. Twitch) and there will be less impact on your game if you are multitasking (e.g. listening to music or streaming a movie while gaming).

Skype (Voice/Video calls) - Without good speed, your call is likely to face interruptions or complete call disconnections.

Important of Good Ping (Low Latency):
Surfing the internet - You click a website and immediately it will start loading immediately. (e.g. you click on a search result in google and immediately the next web page will start to load).

Gaming - Your gaming experience will be good because there will be no delay relative to the actions you make on your controller, mouse/keyboard etc.

Skype (Voice/Video calls) - Your call experience will be good because there will be no delay in communication.

While I do that DLM is used to stabilize a lines quality and speeds, even the fastest internet connections can feel slow if you have higher ping, because everything you do online has a delay to it. The higher your ping, the longer it will take to process any action performed on the internet. A good internet connection requires a balance of speed (higher bandwidth) and ping (low latency). Even a slow internet connection can feel fast if you have relatively low latency and this is what iDNET offers.
