Wow

I've just entered this post on ADSL guide but I want to know if it's just me, but has browsing speed greatly improved in the last half an hour or soHuh I'm repeating it here in the hope that if PlusNet have done something right, it's noticed and other users may be helped. This is my post on ADSL guide,

Don't know what PlusNet have done this evening but my connection seems way, way faster like it used to be like a couple of months ago. My download speeds have always been good but recently it's been very slow browsing......until now! It's flying, hope it stays like that.

Has anyone else noticed an improvement?? I'm on the plusdsl.net realm

RE: Wow

I'm on plus.net and my upload speed is good but the download speed is rubbish (as it has been for the past couple of weeks).

Waiting for an answer from PlusNet.... Shocked(

Your download speed is shite!!!

I'm using PlusNet now since I moved and wanted something new. I regret!

I used BTopenworld before, since they started to have the service. I moved 3 times and used BTopenworld. The upload and download speed was always great and no problems.

With BT, my downstream was never below 40K unless it was the servers problem and my upload was up to 30K on good days but averages on around 20K.

Now with PlusNet, I'm disappointed with Download of average 30K and upload of 8K!!!!

THIS IS SO RIDICULOUS!!!

I WILL WANT A REFUND IF THINGS DON'T IMPROVE BY WEDNESDAY!!!

It seems that some of us are on overloaded pipe. Check if your internal transfers to ftp.plus.net are ok. If they are you are on the same heavily throttled, overloaded outgoing pipe as me...

RE: Wow

Hmmm,

I dunno about you lot but... as soon as the Redback move was made... My connection has been failing occasionally and stuff... before hand I had no problems like you ppl have described!

I was actually getting SDSL for a while {me actually on ADSL}

On all the speed tests I did my connection was:

58.9KBps Download
53.5KBps Upload

which is CRAZY!!! But i have had it for a week!!!

Since the move to Redback the Upload is back at 30.5KBps and the Download is around 58KBps... but I get the occasional Packet loss and browsing problems!!

This has never happened to me before.... For me PlusNet have been 100% ace! However, now I feel like how some of you lot felt for the past month or so!

But as always... im gonna stick with 'em coz they always get through in the end! {me been with PlusNet for almost a year - and have to say they are by far the best ISP}
