You are connected to the Plusnet gateways in London and access the internet via there.

Yes - they have gateways in two locations in London. http://usertools.plus.net/@gateway will tell you the gateway you are connected to. Those beginning ptn and ptw are in Telehouse North and West. Those beginning pcl are in City Lifeline
