IP Profile

Hi all,

 

 

 

 

I've recently upgraded from Unlimited Fibre to Unlimited Fibre Extra.  My previous IP Profiles were;

  • 38mb download
  • 2mb upload

On my old package I used to obtain speeds of 36mb download and 1.7mb upload.  All ok there!

 

Since upgrading to Extra my IP Profiles are;

  • 38mb download
  • 20mb upload

I called Plusnet support to say that I've seen no improvement in download speeds and that I noticed my download IP Profile was still 38mb.  They said that I have to wait ten days to see any speed improvement - I tried to tell them that if my profile hasn't changed then there would be no improvement - I was told that I 'just' have to wait another ten days and call back if there's still a problem.

 

Is my thinking correct that nothing will change if my profile stays at 38mb and should the download IP profile have changed with the upgrade, as my upload profile did?

 

I feel like I was fobbed off and now want to check if my thinking was right or wrong?

 

Thanks,

Dave

You're correct.

Re: IP Profile

These are my stats.  I normally get 36mb download and about 7 to 8mb upload.3.png2a.jpg1a.jpg

Re: IP Profile

Hi @Bustermagic1,

 

I'm sorry that your download speed profile hasn't increased following your move to fibre extra. This should have increased automatically. Also there is no ten day training period when it's an upgrade for fibre to fibre extra so it sounds like the agent has got confused about the correct process here. I'm sorry for the poor experience that you had on this call and I'll pass on feedback.

 

I'm having a bit of trouble finding your account from the information that we have for you. Please can you send me your account username in a private message? If you update this post once you've done that, I'll pick this back up and have a look into this issue for you.

Hi Emily,

 

Thank you for replying to my message.  I managed to get through to another tech support today who confirmed that my connection has been banded and has raised a BT fault ticket.  Also, thank you for passing on the feedback re my call on Monday - my user name is [Removed] if you need to go back to any tickets etc.

 

Just to give a balanced view - the person I spoke to today [Removed], was very helpful and has got thing moving to resolve the issue.

 

Thanks again,

Dave

Looking at the dsl stats here. https://community.plus.net/t5/Fibre-Broadband/IP-Profile/m-p/1574255#M82969 I would question whether, even with your profile lifted, you will have a speed increase significant enough to justify the additional cost of the extra package..

Re: IP Profile

Hi @Bustermagic1

I have checked a back end system which confirms the profile is now 0 - 80Mbps. As this is the case and the sync rate has not increased, we have two options available.

You can downgrade to Unlimited Fibre 40Mbps / 10Mps and we can renegotiate a deal. If you decide this is the best course of action, please call our Customer Options Team directly on 0800 013 2632 or let us know when you are available so we can try and arrange a call back.

The other option would be to complete our broadband diagnostics here. Once complete if you see no improvement, report the issue here then let us know so we can pick it up for you.

Thank you.

Re: IP Profile

Hi @Jubby,

 

Strangely a faults agents looked at my connection on Wednesday and said that the line was capped at the exchange and raised a BT fault ticket - now confused, is there a problem or not?

 

Thanks,

Dave

Re: IP Profile

My guess is that the profile was set incorrectly but having raised the profile it turns out that the line won’t go above 40 Mbps anyway.

Re: IP Profile

Hi @Baldrick1,

 

The faults guy on Wednesday said that the PlusNet system showed 80/20 but still thought it was being capped.  @Jubby didn't mention that he was reporting back on the fault or not?  Once someone confirms that either it was capped/an issue or the line is at capacity then I can make a decision.

 

The reason I upgraded was that I was on 40/2mb and came out of contract - the current 80/20mb is cheaper than my previous contract, I thought I'd give it a go if I got an extra 10mb download.  If I have to go back to 40/10 then it will be even cheaper Smiley

 

Thanks,

Dave

Re: IP Profile

You may be on the up to 80 Mbps service bot the adsl availability data in post 4 shows that your line will only support a maximum speed of 53.7Mbps, whilst it could be as low as 35Mbps and still be considered acceptable by BT. Hence my comment that I doubt that it’s worth paying for the fibre extra option.
