Peak times now suxx big time

Dunno what PN are playing at again but this "traffic shaping" messing about is now slowing my conn down big time ! ive stayed with this isp through change s of bloody ideas and services and now it looks like if we want it cheap , we gonna get it slow , if this is gonna be peak time speeds from now on 6-7 k/sec then not many peeps , me included are gonna stay as this is ridiculous.
just done a speed test anmd got zero , lol , has been running fine until a few weeks ago, but now at peak times is crap, but ok at others .

mugged again ! nice one

if you are on a premier account, then raise a contact us ticket to check that they havent put the wrong profile on your account.

My speeds have been crap for a week and today plus changed the wrong profile to the right one and my speeds are back to normalish

may be worth a try

Ok, on the PN speedtest I've just got 1951.4 Kb/s, perhaps you should be looking closer to home for your problems, as Steve says, it could be your exchange running out of capacity.

are you on a premier account?

if you are do what i suggested plusnet incorrectly put 2000 people on the wrong profile, it only slows you down at peak times!

Maybe running a BT speed test would be worth a try. Normal speeds on that would put the ball fairly and squarely in Plus nets court.

Might be worth a go before raising a ticket.

running bt speedtest shows correct speed - so effectively rules out your pc etc.

my bt speedtest was perfect - raise the ticket or ring them and ask them to check - it is the only logical thing that has happened recently

btw it took me 7 days to get them to sort it

I did a BT speed test during times when I was getting around 1300-1500kbps on PlusNet's service, and on BT's speed test service I was getting full 1840kbps (around), always above like 1770kbps on all the BT ones.

So that shows there it wasn't my exchange or anything

163 kbps on BT speedtest , tickets going in , looks like BT not PN fer change
