Is there an overall in speed?

Just wondered if there was an overall drop in speeds as mine have always been high apart from one drop which was rectified after a week. Not low enough to really complain about but other local plusnet customers have asked me if I was having a slow down same as them. I am about 100 metres from exchange and this is just for the last day or so. I don;t think it will be our exchange that is busy but is it network congestion?

Re: Is there an overall in speed?

Have you looked at the status of your exchange using the exchange checker tool at http://usertools.plus.net/
This is a great little tool even for non-plusnet customers (I'm soon to be a PN customer soon though)

Yes I had checked and found no reports on the Stromness exchange. My profile is 7,000kbps and I normally get around that. As long as it doesn't get any worse and gives a reasonable service I'll be happy though wasn't too pleased when it dropped down towards the 1,000kbps range.

Checked at teatime and at almost 1:00 in the morning and 60% of normal speed at both times - should I report this as a fault or not?

Re: Is there an overall in speed?

Hi there,
Before looking at raising a fault, have you tried optimising your MTU and rWin settings?
There's a nice video that shows you how you can do this:

Re: Is there an overall in speed?

No problems there  -  It seems to be fairly consistent now averaging about  4,200kbps and fine for browsing with the odd small download so If it keeps like this I'll just wait for the BT engineer to come out to some nearby work and get him to check it again. He always gets between 7,000 and 7,100kbps
