My speed results at 17:15 on Saturday pm:

Downstream 470kbps actual, 540 kbps true
Upstream 246kbps actual, 282 kbps true

Before the upgrade, I was getting about the same downstream speed, but upstream little faster than a 56k modem.

I am in the plus.net realm, located in Oxfordshire.

Even if, somehow, London Poplar exchange was the only one in the country where contention ratio of 1:50 on that 10Mbit chunk of 155Mbps SDH ATM is actually in use I still won't believe all 1000 possible contended Plusnet users on that chunk are active 100% of the time throughout entire Saturday.

So.. let me ask this straight - Plusnet - are you throttling bandwidth on some exchanges?
