Have I Been maxed????

I have just done a speed test and got these results.

Date Speed Achieved (kbps)
20-05-2006 11:26:27 4519.3
20-05-2006 11:22:32 4087.5
01-05-2006 12:57:41 1865.5

This is more thasn double my normal speed. I have had no contact from PN regarding switching to MaxDSL. How do I know if I have?

PlusNet don't inform customers that they've been regraded to MaxDSL but from the figures you've quoted, it's pretty obvious that you're now on MaxDSL. Welcome to the club :roll:

Well I seem to be one of the lucky ones. It's been a painless transition Cheesy

I've just done another check and it's faster again!

Your set up

hi suterfamily,

interested that you had no problems. May I ask a couple of questions?

- did you need to change anything on your router to get the faster speed?

- how close to an exchange are you?

- what's the performance like during a week day, do you know?

thanks, regards Sue

I use a Netgear DG834G router and didn't change any settings.

I live less than a mile (as the crow flies) from my exchange.

Not tried during the week as I only found out I was maxed by accident! I will check tomorrow and let you know.

My upload speed is recorded as 371.8 Kbps (ADSL Guide Speed Test)

Impressed

suterfamily,

6 meg - very impressive.

I just did a speed test myself ( at 9.45 am) on my 2meg connection and it came back saying I was connecting at 1.99 meg. And that includes being connected into a VPN to my work network.

Best speed so far with plusnet. If it continues to be at that speed during the day (as I work from home most days) I wil be delighted and singing Plusnet's praises to my work colleagues.

Fingers crossed for MaxDSL. And thanks for your info - I am also using Netgear DG834G router.

regards Sue

Have today received emails from Plusnet notifying me of upgrade to up to 8Mb.
Netgear is showing
"DownStream Connection Speed 7200 kbps
UpStream Connection Speed 448 kbps"
Various speed tests (two different sites) are both giving me speeds up to 5.5Mb.
Plusnet email says speed tests will fluctuate for ten days and will then stabilise to the speed the line will support.
So, I have the upgrade, earlier than anticipated, received emails notifying me and will continue my patience to see what the line will support.
So, all straightforward and efficient. Well done Plusnet. Smiley
