PAYG unfair

Its suddeny dawned on me that as I am now on P.A.Y.G & am therefore paying per Gigabyte used that I should have a completely unfettered connection.

The fair usage policy etc. can't possibly apply to me using a measly average 3 or 4 gig a month & yet I am getting the same treatment as big downloaders by the look of it

Why is my account subject to traffic shaping as this is to limit mass downloading etc ?
The current high pings in gaming are affecting me as well as widely varying speeds & it aint good enough

Sounds like you should raise a ticket. I haven't noticed anything untoward with my PAYG account.

This definately needs looking into as all traffic on the PAYG accounts is gold or better so it should be fast all the time regardless of what you are doing.

Have you tried any BT Speed Tests? If you do this we can rule out any problems with your line.

Hi there,

I am definately getting the high pings on gaming as in the BF2 thread, its up & down like a yo-yo. And varying from 20 to 220 or more
What has +net impemented thats causing high pings that is affecting me?
The BT speedtest usually shows a little less than the average 960 for 1 meg but as you know they will say its normal.

Plusnet speedtest seems to be wildly innacurate & shows around 975 & a week or two ago over 1 meg.
ADSL guide speedtest average 960 - 65



Recent plusnet speeds ( innacurate )

Alternatively try the PlusNet speed test and if this shows no problems then there is no point in trying the BT Speedtest - EDIT - I don't type quick enough
