How are your torrents today?

Just been reading all of the information from the Comms Team.
Did not expect to see any difference in the appalling speed of my torrents, but I was wrong :shock: :shock: :shock:

I have seen speeds of over 30K yes 30K not 30bytes this morning. Shocked Shocked
Was I one of the 700 users with an incorrect profile ?
I am on a Premier accounts.

Thanks to the guys in the team, I know it’s hard to get motivated with Sword of Damocles hanging over your head Cry Cry

Regards
Dave

Hi,

You've never had the 'full line rate' profile assigned. You went from 2mbps to 8mbps after you were upgraded.

Hi James,
Thanks for the reply, sorry I don’t understand what you mean….
I was on 2megs then got upgraded to 8megs (8meg upgrade went flawlessly)
I sync to the exchange at 8megs, my download speed tests have been from 2 ~ 6 megs.

The problem I had was the P2P stuff WAS very slow.
I am more than interested in your reply James and appreciate you efforts.

Regards
Dave

Hi Dave,

My reply was implying that you were not one of the 700 that Bob mentioned in his post. Those 700 had been put on the 'full line rate' profile which was causing their traffic to be prioritsed incorrectly.

I was referred to the speed that your connection is profiled at at our end.

Hi again James,
Well that’s strange, as my profile was 2megs for the fist 3 days then it went to 8megs and has never changed according to the information at
https://portal.plus.net/my.html?action=data_transfer_speed

Never mind I know you’re VERY busy so I will let you get on, nice to have some information and action from PlusNet.

Regards to all in support

How are your torrents today?

my torrents have been lousy for I don't know how long. It actually feels like I've been put on a management level and not taken off it.

Early morning (before, say, 8.30am)is great - up & down.
Mid morning is poor - average of 10k down & 6k up
peak time is pathetic - worse than mid morning

I'm on premier option 2 and I'm on a 2-3.5 meg line (sorry for the vagueness, but I have been on 1.5, 2Mb, 3Mb and 3.5Mb since maxdsl kicked inHuh)

97% of my total monthly download is P2P so I guess you could say that the product I have is totally *not* what I paid for or what I need.

Hi langtang,
My torrents have been VERY slow over the last 6 weeks or so ( bytes during peak times, up to about 10k am & sometimes 30~60k overnight) upload speed was always fine.
Try them again today, looking much better don’t know how long for.

pathetic P2P speeds here as usual,

maxing at 5 KBs, overnight I may get 10 - 15 KBs,

All this on BB PREMIER,

sync at 8128/448 and all my speed tests come in at over 6 Meg, line profile 8000

P2P just dead at all times.

hopefully this update http://portal.plus.net/central/forums/viewtopic.php?t=50979 will include me

Ridiculously slow actually.

Less than 1K - THIS IS BROADBAND NOT DIAL-UP!!!!!

Shame we don't pay for dial-up anymore - we'd get much faster speeds...

Plusnet broadband isn't so fast afterall.

Seemed to speed up a bit in the middle of the night going by the fact it sasy 3 days to download instead of the 4 weeks it mentioned yesterday. Still a very poor service, and as for ftp its absolutly lousy as well.

My torrent speeds don't get much above 5K/s nowadays on BB Premier. Now and then I'll see an improvement for a minute or two, but not much. I'm really sick of it now, I can't wait until I move house and move providers.

Just as an afterthought, would it be possible to check if I am on the correct profile? Should I (try to :roll: ) raise a ticket?

No point bothering. PN know exactly whats going on - They just don't want to admit that they're throttling P2P simply because customers would leave in mass.

They know full well we're all having trouble - And to quote McDonalds plusnet are thinking "We're lovin it".

Get your MAC code and run.
