Speed & Disconnection Issues


Speed & Disconnection Issues

To-day, all day, the service has bombed. Transfer speeds have been all over the place but more to the point the initial connection to various pages/sites has aggravated the situation far more than the speed data below would indicate. Transfer speeds only cover the time after the initial contact with the site has been established. I upgraded to1Mb on 11-10-04 and initially had good service. Since then it's anything but consistent. Yes I hear the problems that plusnet are having with the upstream BT service but that is not something that I will not take into account. Plusnet need to sort those issues out : they get my money so they need to earn it. The speeds indicated below flatter to decieve. The wait times to actually initiate the transfer need Plusnet's immediate attention!
