Poor fibre speeds

Plusnet guarantee 39.8 min speed this was achieved for the first 6 weeks now I'm lucky to get 25mbps films buffer and stop so I'm now paying for an inferer service should have stopped with std broadband slower yes cheaper yes but never buffered so I can only say one thing plusnet are con artists it's all about the money not customer service or satisfaction

I'm sorry to hear that you've been experiencing poor speeds. I've tested your line today but the test isn't picking up the cause of this issue and indicates that your line is currently syncing at 45.5mbps. For reference, today's test result is as follows:

Re: Poor fibre speeds


Hi @Sr


Thanks for coming back to us and thanks for the screenshot.


All of the speed tests that you've performed have been done so via a wifi connection.


Could you please run a speed test via a device that is connected via a cable to the router and let us know the outcome? Wifi can be affected by any number of factors and we'd need to identify whether your speed concerns exist on both wifi and wired in order to progress this for you.


Best wishes,
