Good luck to you with BT, I was with them for a while before PlusNet, and they were far worse than PlusNet are now. I hope for your sake that it goes smoothly and they have changed.

TRust me he's not the only one leaving plus.net now, this cap they are about to impose will loose them a lot of customers including myself.

Good luck, if there is one company which make the current PN fiasco's look professional it's BT Openworld (or whatever they're called today).

I think I'd put BT, AOL, Tiscali and NTL on their own hall of fame with the rest of the ISP's including, sadly, PN, on lower rungs but slowly working up to the dizzy heights of incompetence exhibited by the first 4.

I was all set to leave as well. But, since a few weeks ago I have to say the service has improved vastly, hardly any disconnections, good pings on games, ALL games. So in short i am staying, I never thought i would, and at one point was desperate to leave.

Better the devil ye know eh Cheesy .

I have to agree. PlusNet do seem to have improved this last week or so. I just hope that it's not a blip ...

They do cap, but it's 40Gb, and they don't cut your speeds after that if you do go over occassionally.

I was with BT for 2 years before switching to PN - wish I'd never left ffs :/

Never had a problem with them, or the service - like anything else you pay for quality.

I'm not surprised that they're going after those sorts of ppl - 200Gb a month? What the hell could you download on a 2mb line consistently at that amount? HQ hamster porn?

:shock:

Was already migrated over this morning before I woke up Cheesy

Tested it out and rock solid 30 pings on both CS:S and Quake 4 - with NO packet loss - as opposed to the shambolic packet-lossy 60-250 ping I've had to suffer thanks to PN since just before Xmas.

Even my City of Heroes ping has dropped by 20!

PN charged me £14.99 to leave, and everything from BT (including setup and a BT Voyager 2500V Wifi router) was free.

£29.99 a month for their dearest option (which I took) but it's very much worth it.

I have to disagree. I have now been with AOL for about a month and it is unbelievably fast compared to Plusnet. No forced download limits although I'm not a heavy user, used about 15GB this month.

P2P is now roaring along and now getting speeds of over 190kb/s compared to around 13kb/s on Plusnet.

I agree that AOL customer service is far below an average standard but then some people would say that about Plusnet. I would rather have a fast service and no customer service than no service and good customer service :lol:
