i have also had a higher download speed than (before my massive power cut last night) my ip profile and wondered if it will get any higher over time?

Hi davidfriedlander,
Thank you for the information you provided.
I've had a look for you and have amended your connection profile on your account to 8Mbps. Hopefully you'll start to see a slight improvement in your speed now. Smiley

Re: plus net line speed against bt speedtester ip profile

due to another power cut this has happened again!
does the pn line speed increase itself automatically or does it require intervention?

Hi davidfriedlander,
I've given your connection profile a slight nudge which should take effect in the next 10-15 minutes. What kind of speeds are you seeing now?

Re: plus net line speed against bt speedtester ip profile

Hi Linn,
Speeds are good and consistently higher than my current line profile and my bt ip profile:
my plusnet profile is 7.9, which i think is holding my speed back a touch, as i have stated before my previous supplier was a constant 10mbps with a download throughput of 1.1mb a sec, i have had some power cut problems recently due to a broken underground cable which is now resolved, can we squeeze a little more out of my connection?
