Slow connection tonight.

Tried ptn-ag01, 02 and 07 - All result in just 10-20mbps over the evening.
Sync is up at 80/20 as is IP Profile. Connection is wired.
Is this the horrible start of congestion on Plusnet?

Re: Slow connection tonight.

Graph isn't looking too healthy, either.

Re: Slow connection tonight.

Similar story here - I normally get 65Mbps, but seen packet loss this afternoon and throughput limited to 10 - 20Mbps most of the evening. I'm on Fibre Unlimited.

Re: Slow connection tonight.

Same here in London, SE8
I've only just this morning moved to Unlimited Fibre from Essential and did a test at around 9am:

which made me very happy  Smiley
But was doing some iplayer downloading this evening, thinking I can do it now rather than wait for 'free time', i.e. after midnight.  It seemed slower than what I was expecting.
So paused it and did another test

Not so happy  Sad
Hoping it's "just a glitch"

EDIT better now (49.40 up / 17.60 down)

Re: Slow connection tonight.

It was the same down here in deepest Dorset. I usually get around 42 down but it was in the teens from around 9 last night. It's back to normal this morning.

Re: Slow connection tonight.

Back to 20mbps.
ptn-ag02.
Edit: hopped and landed on pcl-ag06, now hitting around 40mbps. Usenet jumping between 1-3MB/s.
This is becoming slightly annoying.
Edit 3: hopped again and landed on ptw-ag04. A definite improvement - 50-60mbps Speedtest, and 5MB/s on usenet.
Is this still the peak time thing from weeks ago on-going?
Edit 4: Spoke too soon - Usenet down at 1-2MB/s again. :/

Re: Slow connection tonight.

Not sure which gateway I am on but I was slow here too as I am lucky and tend to get very little blue on my graphs. Last might I was down to approx 5 down and 10up on a 80/20 connection IP profile 77.4/20
Graph from yesterday

And one of these days I will work out what the approx three hour spikes are lol

Re: Slow connection tonight.

Hi,
Sorry this wasn't picked up on earlier, there was no reported issues on any gateways that evening.
How have your connections been since?

Hi Chris, it's been much "cleaner" here in Dorset on pcl-ag02 since that event & my speeds are back to normal.
