Likewise. Plus continual disconnections and complete unreliability and really slow browsing. Its getting worse. No word from PN, I'll give it another couple of weeks then jump ship if nothing improves. This is just getting plain silly.

lucky !!!!

You lot should consider yourselves lucky, i'm paying for 2meg and after 11 days i'm still only getting 127kbps download, that is when i can get on the net to check it. What is happening is nothing short of a disgrace and Plusnet should hang their heads in shame at the way they are treating good customers. Just try paying them a fraction of your monthly subscription and see what they do, they wouldn't stand for it and would soon boot you off.
I have been monitoring these forums constantly for the past 11 days and have seen enough unsatisfied customers to convince me that this not the right isp for me. But ever patient I am now going to give Plunet 10 more days to get their act together, if not i shall move elsewhere, infact i'd almost sooner do without than be treated in this way!!!! WHAT SAY YOU ALL, STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!!!!

Have you ruled out exchange contention by completing a BT speed?

For instructions see;
http://usertools.plus.net/tutorials/id/27

Note that you must use the BT login details so that is completed on the BT network only.

If the BT results are good and the Plus.Net is poor, then you can rant at Plus.Net.

Same here plus ftp is blocked have carried out the BT SpeedTest which comes out at the correct speed every time I told this to PlusNet and they said I was on the wrong profile and then corrected it, this fixed the problem for all of 2 hours it is now slow again I sent another support ticket and they just said do the BT Speedtest to check my line my profile has been corrected bla bla bla....going round in circles etc

My next step is to take the following advice and get my contract released.
I might cancel my direct debit in the mean time as i'm sure plusnet will drag it all out liek everything else.

I'm getting some peculiar results too:

23-05-2006 22:29:15 2094.4
19-05-2006 10:39:52 3951.8
14-05-2006 22:56:35 4149.9
06-05-2006 09:56:41 1965.1
05-05-2006 16:55:21 2032.9
04-05-2006 20:06:43 2000.8


So it appears that we are all having similar problems

I am now getting slightly better speeds. At soon as it was 12am my speeds shots up from 1.5mbps to 3.5mbps.

Is this more evidence of excessive throttling and traffic shaping between peak hours.

Well that is what has happened to me the last few days however ... PAUSE....

Defenitely throttled/lack of capacity at peak hours i think as i am now getting 4.8mbps on the Adslguide speed test and 4.6mbps on the BBmax one. This is similar to what i was getting on the BT speed tester a few hours ago.

ook at the difference between last night and this morning

24-05-2006 08:35:32 4239.4
23-05-2006 22:29:15 2094.4

I can understand a 20% difference, but an over 100% difference?
