The speed thingy is much better today!

Downstream 470 Kbps (58.8 KB/sec) 540 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 245 Kbps (30.6 KB/sec) 281 Kbps (inc. overheads)


Can't help thinking that someone might have blasted the UK hubs with a mammoth DoS attack or something.

For speed tests have a gander at www.adslguide.org.uk. Also see http://www.internettrafficreport.com/main.htm.. indicated worldwide speeds are very high after being down for two weeks!!

RE: Big Speed Increase

Judy, if your machine was on over the weekend and has not been re-booted, it may not be picking up the changes made by plusnet (which also affect your local BT exchange).

Try shutting down, leaving the computer off for 30 mins, then re-starting

regards

Judy,

If you are using an ADSL Router, you need to leave that switched off for at least 30 minutes. I would also recommend setting your MTU to 1458, and visiting http://www.dslreports.com/tweaks to check your other settings are at their optimum values.

RE: Big Speed Increase

Gosh what a variation on performance here. I haven't tried these speed tests but it sounds as though things have improved for a few of us anyway. Lets hope tomorrow's upgrade finally sorts it out for the rest of us.

It's a bit like making love sometimes it only lasts ten minutes!! and you think about it and maybe talk about it for the rest of the day. Now for me: downloads 24kbps, uploads 62Kbps and I've even managed a 147/39 My system is so laid back, when the upload sends a message. It say's hey man do I know you? do I want to speak to you. Can I be bothered and then it thinks about it and sends a message when it feels like it. I call it asta manyana net.
