Thank you

Just a message to say thank you to plusnet for my lovely adsl connection that I just got up and running today. I have been given the run around from ntl, bt broadband and several other companies for ages, yet only your service was professional enough to get me online with out and messing about. Thank you so much yet again.

p.s. I love the adsl traker feature.

RE: Thank you

I've been online for a week now, Plusnet have really impressed me in every department. My connection has been rock solid (I hope I'm not giving it the kiss of death) 470 downstream and 240 upstream consistently. Very impressed so far, I hope they continue to provide me with such a good product.

RE: Thank you

you get a 470 downstream and 240 upstream? I must be lucky then as have 576kbit/s down and 288kbit/s up, I was very suprised at this as my old line very rarely got above 36kbit/s on dial up. Chalk another up for plusnet! Cheesy

That's the standard "raw" ADSL connection rate, before packet overheads are taken into account. Check <http://monitor.plus.net> to see the real-world figures.

I'd like to add thanks to PlusNet for my new ADSL connection too. I've struggled along with a Tiscali unlimited access 56K account for the past three months. It has been hell! Random disconnections, server outages and appalling "we'll bill you when we feel like it" service are all a distant memory.

RE: Thank you

You aren't getting 61 or 62 K downloads, don't be fooled by java applets!

Use your own testing equipment from your own pc while online, you will see that the 61 K is only the peak speed, it then drops to about 58 K, sometimes less.

Never have i heard of a constant 62 K stream, it wouldn't happen. ISP's have the conrol, i posted a detailed thing about this bandwidth thing here a few months back.. not writing it out again.

But most web pages are already cached on your own network (caching servers)
so what you think is fast, you really haven't left your ISP. it is sittting there for you.

Like the speed testing thing, at end of day BT run the show and the networks.

Here is a good example of a speed test, done with my own equipment:

Now can you see it is telling me i just got a 122 K downloadHuh thats what you got aswell, but it is only the 'bursting' peak speed. Not the actual constant speed, that is reading 53.31 K at moment.
It goes up and down.
But never what you wrote, and never 122 K thats just a 2 second burst.
