hmm thats normal, 6pm everyone gets home:
Puts the kettle.
Switches/logs in on PC.
Starts dinner.

Result net slows, it's when you start getting packetloss or excessive pings is when its a problem. If you want to hear of bad ping days, then ask anyone on IRC that uses Chello, they can give you a day long account of how bad Broadband is in europe.

Yea maybe so but from 512k to something like 40k is not acceptable.
Its getting way beyond a joke now and PlusNet need to sort this out.
for an extra fiver a month i could have 1mbit from Cable, which is a LOT more reliable, but no im sticking with plusnet as i have used them for over 3 years.
I think i will give it a few weeks then move on, im getting sick of the problems

hmm well PN Rent the bandwidth we use from BT, so once BT have exchanges that arent over used better get used to it. I did say ask anyone on chello, also try asking anyone on most US ISP's what Real broadband is like. UK has only had it for 2 years, most other countries have had it for 6 or more and have these problems.

So its supply it as cheap as possible. Because theres always someone willing to take you space on your exhange, so until BT get there finger out and do something about the congestion it will get worse not better.

RE: Slow again

me being a jolt admin i see plenty of ppl useing chello as it is one of the largest isp in europe but i don't see them with a ping of 150...if i wanted that kind of ping i would go back on 56k dialup.
And don't BT and other isp garante a connection of 512k ...i remember a BT engineer tell me when i had problems with my isdn.

RE: Slow again

Dude, ive had broadband for 2 years exactly and its NEVER been this bad.
At least cable is reliable.
I have had ADSL 6 months and when i first got it the connection was reliable and fast. And as for PN renting Bandwidth?
All these 155mbit pipe lines they are installing should make a difference - i mean i am less than 2 miles from PlusNETs Internet House!!!!
Another thing - if they rent it then why are other ISPs in my area perfomring MUCH better than PlusNET??
All i hear from them is excuse after excuse and i for one am getting FED UP

which means you can download at 61.66 KB/sec. from our servers.

RE: Slow again

Gus

I dont understand your reply, I've tested again and it says 'bandwidth reading is 94.0kbps which means you can download at 11.86 KB/sec. from our servers'.

I understand exchanges play a big part in the speed issues but when so many people from many areas are sysing its slow it starts to make you wonder if the ISP is the problem.

I'm not complaining, I've had good service from +net once my splitter were sorted out. Its just nice to try and find out where and whats causing shuch a major slow down.

RE: Slow again

yep same I am paying for ADSL not dial up quite franky the Plusnet service is now beyond a joke this is my third month with Plusnet and a week has not gone by were there has been problems with the service. Is this an issue with trading standards as feel I am being ripped off.

For the third night running it’s like wadding through treacle. Although, not as tasty.
