I understand they want you to run the test in the early hours to give a more acurate result but my speed tests have never been like this before?? at any time of day!

Is this a sign of PlusNets service degrading over time or...

If you haven't received an email saying so then I guess you haven't it's not like PlusNot would do something without saying so is it - Wink

Try the BT line checker all the instructions are here - http://usertools.plus.net/tutorials/id/27

You should really do a BT speed (http://usertools.plus.net/tutorials/id/27) test to get a more accurate result

Sign in as you would with PlusNot but using the name speedtest@speedtest_domain
and any password doesn't matter.

Go to this page - http://217.35.209.142 and run the speed test - Cheesy

So it seems you are being shaped try again on the plusnot test and adslguide after 12 and see if there is any improvement. If not raise a ticket and quote those figures.

If the BT speed test is showing a speed as low as that it is more likely exchange conention. Plus Net would not appear to be the problem ith this one.

Run the BT speed test again tomorrow evening at the first sign of a slow down and post the results.

For info, Peter Vaughan does not work for Plus Net. He is a customer who is also a member of the tutorial team and has provided invaluable help to forum users for some years now.
