RIN = BT Retail Internet Network

Its a new way in which ISPs can connect to BT instead of the current BT Centrals and is a separate trial network that BT retail are running which PlusNet are taking part in.

It is only available for those on the now discontinued Broadband PAYG product.

Hi there,

RIN is BT's Retail Internet Network, and is currently a trial we are running with PAYG customers.

The traffic when logged in using RIN bypasses our network entirely, and connects via BT from end to end.

And don’t think just because it by-passes PN it has no restrictions. It can be slightly faster than PN at peak times for general things but usenet speeds are restricted (even after midnight). I don’t use peer-to peer so I will leave others to comment on that.

My usenet runs flatout at any time of the day on rin,perhaps you have some exchange contention problems.
