Hi, I have just signed up to the Plusnet 512k broadband plus service. I do occasionally play Half Life Counterstrike. I was wondering if anyone else has experience of playing games like this an wether the Broadband Plus account is suitable for this? or should I have ideally gone for the Premier package?

Well if your just gaming then you wont use much of your allowance. Everytime you open a web site you will download a graphic...the more you surf the net, the more usage you will use. So as for playin CS or other online games, providing you aint downloading maps and files all the time, you should be fine. Just keep an eye on 'View my usage' under 'My Account' for a few months and see what you are using.

Cool..As far as latency is concerned though is the Plusnet network pretty good in terms of latency?

also remember that shortly the download only will count, not sure how this would affect gaming ,
presumably you would be downloading & uploading at the same time when online gaming as info is being sent & received at the same time Tongue Tongue

Hopefully on the PLUS package gaming will be fine as I have been using Zen for nearly 2 years and everything has been Jake. I have only moved to Plusnet as I needed to shave some outgoings and saving 10 quid a month was too tempting to pass up. On PLUS though there is no download limit is there?

There will be shortly with the fair usage policy but it will be megamegs ( a new description ? Tongue & certainly will not affect gaming or average downloading & will only affect bigtime leachers
Even tho I am nearly 60 I play Desert Combat most nights & never get any problems & my ping is always amongst the lowest even on some Euro servers
