Sounds cool... but what is BT's policy regarding Mac OS X systems?

BT Wholesale don't care what OS you have. BT Retail use ethernet routers that don't care either, in fact you avoid all their crapware if you just hook it up via ethernet and a browser.

Pardon my ignorance but could somebody explain where (if?) there is a benefit to the retail customer?

The advantage is that people upgrading to MAX at the same time as changing providers now cost the ISP less than a similar move to classic services.

The majority of people will benefit BUT those where their lines have issues with MAX will suffer as it will 'encourage' ISP's to move them to MAX without consultation.

We will continue to offer the choice of MAX or non-MAX at the point of order for all customers as we'd like our customers to get the best experience.

The retail benefit would appear if ISPs chose to pass on the saving or run a promotion. MaxDSL has fixed speed profiles available as part of the fault resolution process.

All should bear in mind that BTW are withdrawing all fixed rate IPStream services, so this is the start of a forced move to all users up to MAX - like it or not

To avoid any confusion, MaxDSL circuits *do* have fixed speed profiles available if required. These match the current fixed speed IPStream product speeds.
