PlusNet are playing games. They do not intend to provide you with the service you pay for.

Sorry to hear you're having some issues. Can you provide some more information? Where are you experiencing the slow speeds? At all times of the day? On all protocols?

What do you get on a speedtest at www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk ?

If your product isn't doing what it says it should there may be a fault.

I've seen others complaining about speed issues in the past only for it to be resolved upon discovering that there was a config error on their account.

Have you tried raising a "Contact Us" ticket? If not it might work out well.

I'v been having the same thing, speed all over the place.

I did start a thread on it yesterday
http://portal.plus.net/central/forums/viewtopic.php?t=51471
got a reply from Bob Pullen but It was a bit glib.

maybe they have put us all on some sort of variable speed thing.

Just got this on Plusnet!



Latency probably due to an interleaved connection. Speed better than Zen?!
