Can you attempt to reconnect at last twice and try the speed tests again.

There is a know issue with an average of 1 in 16 connections right now. Plusnet are hoping to impliment solutions to rectify this in the short-term tomorrow.

BTs own speed test reports as follows

1854 kilo bits per second (Kbps),

Poor speeds today?

Why does every link that you link on within the plus.net members portal seem exceptionally slow compare to anywhere else if anything i would have thougfht that it should be faster.
Ive a 2mb connection and opening my plus.net emails in particular seems extremely slow while opening my Gmail emails or even my old hotmail accounts seem very quick in comparsion.

Is there a problem with the service?.

Markkipling, please see your other thread HERE. There is some information regarding your line values.

Also noticed some fluctuation yesterday with my lowest test ever, dropping to 1300kbps from the Adslguide speedtest.
However what with the unreliability of speedtests as a whole, and the problems that PN have admitted to at the moment I'm sure things will return to the normal high standard soon.

* Thank god I came to plus.net *

Many many thanks for your reply Plus.net moderator.

I knew coming to plus.net was the best idea I've ever made.. all the support guys that work with plus.net deserve a pay rise lol

Followed your idea's and eventually got it working, many many thanks - if I wish with any other isp and by now my gear would have been bounced about the house like a football.
