I'm not a fan of long term contracts, are there
Yes. A 12 month contract is the default option on
this package range,
however, if you would rather have a 1 month minimum
contract, we offer a dedicated broadband range that provides this. This can
be found http://www.aquiss.net/broadband-business.php
. Please call us on 01746 708090 if you need further clarity on this option.
Understanding line sync and expected speeds
The actual speed achieved depends upon the distance
from the exchange and quality of the telephone line. At certain times,
congestion within the network may also result in reduced speeds. In all
cases we will provide you with an estimated "sync range" that your telephone
line will support prior to agreeing a contract with ourselves. If you wish to discuss
the quality of your line in technical detail, please do get in touch. We
will happily go into detailed specifics.
What is the Low Latency Management mentioned above
In order to prevent packet loss and avoid high
latency during latency sensitive services, such as VoIP, we have combined our own
in-house Anti-Loss Tool (ALT) that monitors the network performance with
controls for technical aspects such as FAST Path, Interleaving, Latency and
Target SNR (line noise)
How long will it take to migrate a broadband
service to Aquiss?
Migrations (via a MAC Key) are completed within 7
to 10 days, although it's often even less than this. Bulk migrations can take
up to 10 working days depending on quantity. You can expect a short service
interruption of between 20 minutes and 2 hours on the day of migration - but
it's worth it once it's done!
If I want to end my contract, is there a charge?
Maybe, depending on what your looking to do. If
your not moving your service to another ISP, known as migrating, there would
be a £33.33 Broadband Cease fee. If your migrating away from Aquiss (via the
use of a MAC Key) there would be no charge. Of course, if there are any
remaining months left on your minimum contract to complete, you would also need
to settle these in full. It should be noted that charges will also be triggered
if your telephone service is cancelled causing our broadband service to be
I am moving home, is there a charge?
Yes. There will be a £33.33 Broadband Cease fee to end the service at your current property. If there are any
remaining months left on your minimum contract to complete, whilst at this property, you would also need to settle these in full. Contracts are not transferred between properties. Reactivation charges at your new property are possible,
subject to contract options available and availability. It should be noted that charges will also be triggered
if your telephone service is cancelled causing our broadband service to be ceased.
I notice there are a couple of options to
increase the upload sync up to 2.2 Mbps. Do I need any special hardware?
Yes. To take advantage of enhanced upload syncs, a
router or modem that supports ADSL2+ Annex M is required Annex M enables you
to increase your upload speed by trading some of your download speed. Annex
M also guarantees an upstream throughput of 85% of the upstream sync rate
between the hours of 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, excluding UK public and
