Should I come to plusnet?

Hello, I game online and my contract with virgin is up, the download speeds are brilliant but the ping spikes and packet loss make me not want to renew, whats plus net like for online gaming? Would anyone recommend them? I'm looking at the 74mb unlimited fibre deal.

Re: Should I come to plusnet?

Welcome to the forum.

I fear that the answer is akin to "how long is a piece of string". Plusnet is part of BT and use their infrastructure. How good your connection will be is dependent on your local infrastructure, the number of users on your fibre cabinet and upstream equipment etc.

@Greendore If you put your address in the DSL Checker, you will get a better idea of the speeds you are likely to get - ultimately your speeds will depend on how far away you are from your cabinet.

No it's dreadful. Is there no fibre offering? What speeds are you currently getting?

Re: Should I come to plusnet?

With the info you have posted from DSL checker suggest fibre is not available to you.

What does it say here  when you put your postcode in.

You could always start the PN sign up online to see if it offers you fibre.

 

I have PN 80/20 have no problems with gaming.

"Great news, Superfast fibre is in your area."

 

I know I have fibre as I use to have BT infinity fibre Smiley I dont understand why that website thinks I dont have it.
