Slownet

Yeah we're all complaining about the speed and 9 times out of 10 plusnet say "are you sure it's us and not the BT network"

I was getting major problems with websites tonight so I did a BT speedtest, A plusnet speedtest and "a n other" speedtest

BT speedtest shows:
Test1 comprises of Best Effort Test: -provides background information.
IP profile for your line is - 6000 kbps
DSL connection rate: 448 kbps(UP-STREAM) 7328 kbps(DOWN-STREAM)
Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 5410 kbps

so 5410kbps. Not that bad...

HOWEVER.

speedtests done through the plusnet network show:
2386kbps

less than HALF what BT network is showing.

Long gone are the days when I was telling everyone how good Plusnet is.
