Be Broadband's optimisation feature will not have a large impact on the majority of users, one expert has suggested.
The broadband provider has unveiled an optimisation function allowing users to tailor their connections towards playing games, speed, or reliability.
But Thomas Newton of UK Web Media has raised doubts as to how many broadband users will want to "tweak or fiddle" with their connection.
Broadband Finder reported him as saying: "The only real way in which this affects heavy downloaders is that the time spent waiting for files to finish transferring will be shortened; broadband optimisation will not limit or increase the amount you can download in any way."
Mr Newton went on to concede that those playing games will also benefit from the option which reduces 'game lag'.
Be Broadband's managing director, Felix Geyr, has insisted that the service will allow Be members to utilise their connection better.
