Any problems on Plusnet this weekend ?

My internet speeds areall over the place , waiting  ages for pages to load etc.
I'm on 80 Mb fibre , I'm close to the cabinet and connect at 78Mb .
Just ran a speed test and got a result of 1.39Mb  Cry

Anyone else noticing problems or is it just me ?

Could it be because the Countryfile is on? Grin

The workings of the internet are indeed, a deep mystery!  Undecided

My connection seems to suck tonight too. Down from 75 to the 50s ds and from 15 to 3 us with a general sluggishness. Assume it's just the peak slowdown?

Got off pcl-bng03 onto ptw-ag03 via the Disconnect / Connect tab on the routers webpage but it doesn't seem to have made a difference.
Running several speed tests I can get  results of over 40Mb  but another test a few minutes later is less than 1Mb ?

Re: Any problems on Plusnet this weekend ?

I did a TAP3 test connected to the Speedtest domain & it gave the same poor results I had when logged into Plusnet so does that suggest for me the congestion is between my cabinet & exchange? Am I right in thinking that test doesn't even get to Plusnet's network? The Speedtest site said poor result & to report to ISP. I might add it to my ticket.

Does suggest that it maybe congestion within BT's network (area specific) rather than PlusNet's network. I'm in the NW (connected through Preston MSE) and it has been fine today.
