Another 155Mbps goes live...

Heads up, we've just posted the following to Service Status :

Quote
We are pleased to announce that we have now activated the 1st segment of our sixth 622Mbps Central Pipe.

The new capacity has been activated in line with the current budget and in response to our recent Broadband Your Way product launch as well for projected growth in signups and to support existing customers moving to the new products.

When new capacity is added to the network, it takes time for the network to balance and for a representative proportion of the customer base to connect to the new segment. In order to speed up this process and help balance the platform to give the most benefit to customers, it may be necessary for us to temporarily disconnect a number of customers from the network. Should we take the decision to do this we will announce further details as a planned maintenance notice otherwise it may take up to a week for the new segment to be balanced.

We frequently review our plans for the purchase of additional capacity and will continue to do this based on projected customer numbers.

Is that the third new 155Mbps since I left PN in January??
Not bad for a company who denied having a capacity problem Cheesy

Perhaps my referals will stop whining at me now that they can download their spam faster Cry

If you have disconnected today then you may be one of the early new pipe users so not affected by any capacity issues. If not, then it may just be a coincidence or a lot of people have recently disconnected/reconnected and released some capacity on existing pipes.

See what its like this evening when things get busy.
