Absolutely diabolical speed.
This network is getting no better.
It’s worse than ever for me… slow speed tests and browsing slower than dialup.
Unbelievable…

Its an absolute disgrace, and PN know it.

Why dont you try a bt speedtest, change the login on your router to "speedtest@speedtest_domain" with a blank password, then go to: http://217.32.105.42/cgi-bin/home.page.pl

Run a speedtest then, and it will show just what speed you could get through your exchange if it werent for the plusnet network....

Mine is showing 2mb, yet every single test Ive done when connected to the PN network shows well below 512k.

As yet, no answers from PN... I wonder why.

Perhaps I should ask the register and thinkbroadband discussion groups what they think it is?

Just to give some reflections on things I thought I would post the results of my speed test here

Ive now conducted a BT speedtest while logged in via my PN account, and one when logged in via BT.
http://217.32.105.42/cgi-bin/home.page.pl

Speed when connected via PN: 210 kbps
Speed when connected via BT: 1,997 kbps

Anyone from PN want to comment on this direct comparison?

Can others navigate to the page above and do a test when connected to PN, then the same again when connected via BT (unfortunately you have to leave it 30 mins between tests)

i think its only fair that PN give an update for the Service Status: Broadband Platform Traffic Management.
Its 4 days since the last one and things are obviously nowhere near being resolved.
These big silences just indicate that no one has a clue as to how to fix it.

1. Phone BT
2. Reactivate closed segments.

Just how hard is it?

Terrible for me too, P2P was so bad I turned off my Torrent client.

Try comparing your speeds with a propper BT speedtest and see what the difference is.

Hopefully if enough of us do this, PN may feel like giving us some answers in this thread.

If this isn't sorted by the end of the week, I'm off. Taking 5 referrals with me.

Plus net have become a total joke. If you recieved service like this in a restaurant you'd refuse to pay the bill and punch the waiter. Maybe we need to enforce physical violence?!!!

Unfortunately that just the way it is with marketing speak....they tell you what you want to hear. It bears no relation to reality.

@godsell4....i just clicked on your link and had a good read of that page. If the situation here wasn't so damned annoying and frustrating for so many, i would have laughed my arse off at it.
What a fine mix of spin and complete fiction!
