Im also having the same issues from Plusnet and getting no help. BT engineer came out fitted new master socket and found no faults. My Btwholesale test is coming back with a download speed of 0.5, ridiculous.

Re: losing the will to live......... can i go back to dial up?

I though I'd give it ago for you, for comparisons sake :

Thus I went to http://speedtest.btwholesale.com/

And my results are as follows :

First test

download: 8.69

Upload : 0.99

Ping: 44.88

Second Test

download: 8.79

Upload : 0.84

Ping: 46.88

Third Test

download: 8.72

Upload : 0.99

Ping: 43.00

 

i ran each test one after another with a break of a minute in between, my line seems stable, even though there's a slight deviation, I think that's due to packet loss.

 

anyway, hope this helps. I only have the cheap home broadband package for £20 a month. I did pay PlusNet a fiver though for a Static IP, which has made my life so much easier you wouldn't believe.

kind regards
