Hello,
PlusNet have now upgraded their VMBU so why not upgrade that hard to read and not understandable graph they use for Network load!
There has been a idea proposed her but got abandomed!

It has got great support and would help us all to understand our slow P2P and USENET problems.

Can you clearly understand them.
Also they could tell us their Max Load so we know when our P2P service will be bad.
Hope you like my Logo!

You're avatar confused me for a minute tbh. Plus having "plusnet" as your occupation in your profile might just confuse others aswell Smiley

PlusNet are confusing!
First when I signed up saying PlusNet not suitable for heavy P2P downloaders.
Now PlusNet are saying BB+ is NOT for P2P!
That is what is confusing loads of people

Indeed. BB+ has never been suitable for P2P that has been stated for quite sometime.

Thanks for noticing.
When the thread went dead I honestly thought this was something that a lot of people couldnt be bothered with and didnt want.
I would love to see such a tool implemented for us EU as it would help us to understand the goings on especially at peak times. Not to mention the fact that if you have a CLEAR and CONCISE tool that will allow you to check all usages and throttles wouldnt this help cut down on un-needed phone calls to PN support that only result in an answer along the lines of "Yes we are sorry but our network usage is rather high at the moment".

So this is my plea to all, to vote on the following topic poll
http://portal.plus.net/central/forums/viewtopic.php?t=33237
and see if PN can do anything that will help us see and understand the network more clearly.

Regards.

This is something I also asked for when they first brought out the new style graphs.

The existing graphs are harder to read and therefore its much harder to identify times when the network is busiest.

The old style graphs were based on 5 min averages with hour time slices.
The new graphs have 6 hourly time slices :/

It would also be useful if it indicated the bandwidth available for each account type.
