Broadband Traffic Management
Please see an overview of the broadband traffic management policies that we use
with our broadband products in conjunction with our Broadband Network Suppliers.
Direct Save Telecom fully supports the Broadband Stakeholders Group (BSG) voluntary code of practice and,
although we are not a direct sponsor of BSG, our Broadband Network Suppliers are and they help us to deliver good quality
and affordable products together with clear and easy to understand explanations of traffic management.
For more information on the BSG voluntary code of practice see here
Key Facts Indicator (KFI)
The tables below give an overview of typical traffic management practices undertaken with our products,
it does not cover circumstances where exceptional external events impact on network congestion.
It also excludes any service, content, application or protocol that is blocked by UK law and child abuse images as informed by the
list provided by the Internet Watch Foundation.
If no entry is shown against a particular traffic type, no traffic management is typically applied to it.
