Ok then guys lets talk about this.

Ok then guys lets talk about the  "Pro Add On" add on package!!! Upgrades your service to a top-class prioritized connection, ideal for online gaming and working from home.  YAAAAAAAAAAY.... when i first got an email through showing me about this add on i was kinda confused and one of my Immediate thoughts was how is this going to be possible??.. taking into consideration the the current bt phone lines are copper and are basically going as fast it  can .  so the other day i was lurking on the plusnet web site and came accross the add on.. £5 a month no contract.. ok lets give it a try.. did it increase my speeds?? NOO do i see an improvement in gameing ping speeds... NOOO ... ok so its £5 a month ontop of ur normal bill not much really but it dont do anything... DONT BUY IT... oh and plusnet Stop advertising that your speeds are 20mbit they are not n never will be.. its 10+ abit.... <removed>   Crazy

Re: Ok then guys lets talk about this.

It means all traffic is on a priority, nothing is speed capped.  that can affect some games that use P2P for patching/updates.  What it wont do is affect Pings, that is simply how good the routing is from you to the server.

Re: Ok then guys lets talk about this.

it doesnt increase your line speed, it does away with the traffic clamping that lowers whats you can pass between you and plusnet
