Is it still the same as the unlimited if not and it is better can I be moved to it.
Can someone also take a look at a ticket I raised over payment.
Thank you, addnan

Re: Plusnet premium trafic shaping

I have just checked and it does look better than unlimited. Will it possible for me to move to this at the start of next month. Pay £11.99 for two months then £15.99 since I am in Market 3.

Sure - Click on the account change button and it can be done.
I'll arrange for the discount to be applied after you have been moved over.

Re: Plusnet premium trafic shaping

Before I change from unlimited to premium, can someone give me some advantages and disadvantages to it please. I like the fact that it is line speed on gaming all day that is the biggest plus for me. Can I see a comparison of the two please.
Thank you.

preminum comes with a 80gb usage limit with free midnight to 8am usage.
the traffic shaping is all so better at some times of the day

Heh. ASBO beat me to it. Unfortunately they're not on the same page, but those are the different times and line rates on the various protocols.

Re: Plusnet premium trafic shaping

I'd be interested to know what the definition of Other is on the Premier download speeds table. Does this mean that everything that isn't recognized by Plusnet gets limited to 256Kbps between 6pm and 10pm (for example, including things like games Plusnet don't yet have signatures for)?
Thanks,
Phil

Re: Plusnet premium trafic shaping

I think I will stick with what I have for now. During peak time 6-10pm the speeds are still slow, but gaming is obviously on line speed. So I am wondering whether this will help my PS3, because at the moment I can not play online with it during this time period.

Hi Phil, as there is no definition of Other then it could apply to other things such as WEB and Email, that would be bad.
Either way Plusnet need to change that page to make it more obvious what it is they mean by other, as it stands it looks dodgy!

Re: Plusnet premium trafic shaping

to me it means web, streaming ect but your right that needs clearing up. you click other and it just takes you to the list at the bottom which has no bearing on the class.
the 2mb down cap on gaming is 24/7 on unlimited so if your having issues only at peak time it shouldnt be the rate limit. i am on unlimited an xbox is fine

Re: Plusnet premium trafic shaping

Hi guys,
Other is stuff that isn't recognised. Shouldn't be web as that would be in http, more likely to be new applications that don't have sigs yet.

Re: Plusnet premium trafic shaping

It is when the network is quiet.
Line speed refers to the rate limit.
