Made the move......................

I have just made the application for the switch from Extra to Unlimited as the profile of the service is better and the the money saved is welcome Smiley
Just for the record here is what RouterStats has to report 'now' 22:22 hours on the 5th Feb
Shows a consistently good sync for I think the longest number of days I can recall.  Smiley Wink
So all being well the switch will happen with the Static IP address maintained and the sync & stability equally so  Cool Cheesy

Re: Made the move......................

When the product change takes place in the early hours (3-4am) of your billing date only your service profile needs to change. This involves just the PPP connection to Plusnet dropping and reconnecting, no need to re-sync, so your sync speed shouldn't be affected at all. Smiley

Re: Made the move......................

Thanks for the added insight Smiley
So just(?) a PPP session drop and reconnect  Cool
Edit ~ just need to keep an eye on a closed ticketHuh

Yes, it was just a PPP drop and reconnect when I changed.
You should have one closed service notice/ticket now which confirms the product change instruction. On billing date, in addition to the normal tickets several more will appear, one of which IIRC changes you from monthly billing to monthly billing (but it keeps the system happy). Cheesy

Re: Made the move......................

I know not to relevent to the upgrade and more likely to do with the Gateway issue and PlusNet "work" this morning but after nigh on 64days the WAN was dropped by the exchange and resync'ed slightly lower for the same margin 'level' Sad  Though the differnce is very small it has taken me closer to the point where the IP could drop down a notch but hopefully not?

Re: Made the move......................

Plusnet work on the gateways should only cause a PPP drop, not re-sync. BT engineering work in the exchange is the more likely explanation. Or your router just felt like it. Cheesy
It looks like you are on 21CN so IP Profiles don't change in 500kbps steps.

Re: Made the move......................

Yup, on 21CN so within the limits then ~ phew  Cheesy
So more a co-incidence in regard to the re-sync happening on the same morning as work on the Gateways.  But as you perhaps the PPP session dropping made the router take a powder  Huh Roll eyes

Re: Made the move......................

Update
This transition from Extra to Unlimited went through a short while ago and as indicated by spraxyt there was no obvious impact on the connection ~ as far as I can tell including in RouterStats not even the PPP session was dropped, the sync and Margin are the same and the static IP is unchanged.
Having said all that, what I have noticed is that the browsing is for want on another word "snappier", granted we are now 2am so maybe there is less congestion and other factors that one might expect to slow things down at times but under Extra I do not recall the browsing being so rapid for page/site changes and page refreshes ~ so if that keeps up that would be an added benefit  Grin
FWIW I could discern no such user experience benefit when I changed from Premier Option 1 to ExtraHuh

Hi Adam
So far so good and the apparent page loadings etc is good and still (relatively) snappy  Wink
