OpenWeb Uncapped ADSL

If you've been disappointed by the performance of your uncapped ADSL account, what with shaping and throttling, it could be time to give OpenWeb's Home Uncapped PLUS accounts a try. If you're into gaming or streaming stuff you're even more in luck as they enjoy higher priority with these accounts. In addition you can enjoy unshaped downloads until you're blue in the face between 12PM and 7AM every day.

According to the OpenWeb wizards these accounts have a lower contention ratio than other uncapped accounts, which basically means there are less people battling it out for a piece of the internet pie as compared to regular accounts. Billing is pro-rata as well so you can sign up any time during the month without having to pay full price, as some ISPs do.

Packages start at 2Mbps and go up to 20Mbps, with snappy international bandwidth provided by the 2 fastest undersea cables that our country has access to. Click here to read more about these new OpenWeb uncapped accounts.
