getting 10-15kbps tonight on ftp teansfers. Evil

but speedtests at various websites tell me i've got:

Up Stream: 448 (Kbps.) (56kb/s - the speed you SHOULD see on a transfer in an ideal world Wink )

Down Stream: 6000+ (Kbps.) (750kb/s - the speed you SHOULD see on a transfer in an ideal world Wink )

last night i was getting 550-600 kb/s transfer rates constantly and when uploading i nearly always get 47kb/s while uploading... which i was quite happy with given im a couple of miles from my exchange.

i dont see why i get decent speeds sporadically and crappy ones the rest of the time.

any help would be appreciated... my hw / sw settings remain the same as they have always been, and i have no other program sapping bandwidth.

the places i am transfering from have good routing and there's pleanty of spare bandwidth to max an 8mbit line and a whole lot more.

can someone from plusnet shine any light on this situation ?

the only conclusion i can come to is plusnet are filtering what we can do with our lines... my router states the same speeds as the independant speed checkers... but anything other than browsing is slow

It's pathetic, it's not even broadband, slow speeds, disconnections, and getting through to their own website sums it all up. What an advert for them. I have cancelled and will move next month, that will be the last disconnection they will do on me.

They have taken the £47 cancellation fee, at least Judas offered his 30 pieces of silver back, but he had a conscience. Cheeky illegitimate offspring.

I'm only getting 129.30kbps today and this is typical of the last few days.

I'm pretty annoyed that I am paying for broadband and only getting speeds equivalent to ISDN. What on earth is going on? I find that even just browsing is too slow.

The service I am getting is really starting to jar me off. The speed tonight is 130kbps, yesterday was about 1800. Like the other posts I am using an independant checker. I have speeds up to 3300 when Im lucky. The help from the support centre borders on useless, told me to do a check with BT which showed I had a problem and they said I had to check my settings but did not say which ones, and then closed the question because I had not responded within 2 days. I dont suppose writing here will help as they will not read it. I am considering canceling my contract. It was fine until they upgraded me to the 8mb line, regulary as clockwork got 1800 speed no problems.
