RE: This is bad isnt it?


Remember these speed tests are dependant on loads of factors not just your connection speed, just cos you get a poor speed in a test doesn't mean its a problem with plusnet. Here's three tests from different servers all done within a couple of minutes and everyones different. Don't rely on one test and don't get hung up on its results. If you continually get poor speeds then its likely you've got a problem which may be your setup/setting or maybe plusnet. The best way forward then is to post the URL result of the tweak test (www.dslreports.com/tweaks)and also post a tracert. Someone will advise you then based on the results.

There's no doubt that some people are having problems with Plusnet. Those aside I guess that most of the problems with speed are still down to peoples own settings.

How about the Megapath upload speed eh, if only!! Apparently this is down to a bug in the Java coding and depends on what os your using. I've had this over 600kbps on occasions.

RE: This is bad isnt it?

check out the article DRTCP? a few lines down..Its worked for others and it works for me.......having done some research now, I`m finding out more about how the whole ADSL system works(surprisd it does?)if you see the progress bar stationary while you down load, suspect somethings up!.if it wizzes by, then be happy ? it would appear that I am about 7.5 times fatser than dial-up modem and that suits me at the moment, which is not the 10x`s that is always advertised?
hope you have better results?
