Been upgraded to 2meg - wondering about speed

I got disconnected the other night. I reconnected and it said
"You are connected at 2.2Mbps"
which made me happy Smiley

There doesn't really seem to be a gain in speed though:

20-05-2005 04:30:55 498.5
20-05-2005 04:19:07 498.9
20-05-2005 04:18:13 498.4
17-01-2005 08:18:30 425.7
09-01-2005 22:37:09 441
09-01-2005 22:36:14 442.1

I was just wondering if this was due to the contention ratio or if something else needs changed before I can see an increase in speed. As you can see, I was online at 4am. I wouldn't have thought it'd be too busy, so that's why i'm wondering if it's the contention.

Cheers

Call plusnet and ask them to remove the throttle on your line now your speed has been upgraded.

^ What he said.

Basically, your line is still set to 512k at Plusnet's end. If you haven't done so already, one quick call to the support centre on 0845 1400200, a quick reconnection, and you should be happily cruising along at 2Mb.
