" Poor speeds
Ive been having issues with speeds since changing to plusnet, however it has gotten much worse latley, I raised a fault earlier in the month and was told that the bandwidth had been reset, also the advice from plusnet was to buy a better router as WIFI connection was so poor we could hardly use it. We live in a small 2 bed bungalow which is literaly 10 paces from front to back, the router is in the middle and we go from 4 bars of WIFI in living room with router to 2 or sometimes 1 bar when at front or back of bungalow(5 paces away). Anyway I bought a new router wich has made a big differance to WIFI owever overall speeds are terrible, normal download whilst plugged in with a network cable is between 10mb and 20mb and fluctuates greatly we are on fiber plus so should be getting around 39mb minimum. I am really regretting changing to plusnet, we have had broadband here for many years at supposidly lesser speed with little issue. Ive raised another fault today so will wait to see if anything can be done. Ive undergone all the checks I can find on the forums etc to no avail. lease please help or please let me gt out of this contract, cant bare to think we are stuck with this for another year. "
Thank you for contacting us via our Community forum.
I'm sorry to hear of the problem with your broadband speed and appreciate your new router has made some difference but not with the overall speed. Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this may have been causing you.
I have carried out some diagnostic tests on your phone and broadband. Your broadband is showing good connection stability with speeds at 48.9 Mbps downstream and 16.4 Mbps upstream, these are in line with the averages for your product and speed.
Your phone line is however showing premature termination, which may be impacting upon your broadband connection. I have raised this with our suppliers Openreach for further investigation and an engineer visit.
Fault ref. TR0000011666156
There is a possibility that the engineer may need to visit your property. Please can you accept the following statement in case he does:
"I will now book an engineer to investigate the fault. If the engineer finds the problem is with your internal wiring, your equipment, the condition of Openreach equipment within your property and its boundary, or if no fault is found, you will be charged £65 to cover the cost of the engineer. This charge will also apply if you miss the appointment or cancel without giving us 2 working days' notice.
This will apply at all times whilst we're working on the fault.
Do you accept the possibility of a charge?"
Please respond via this ticket to accept the statement.
The estimated Openreach response time is by 5 pm 4th February, this may be sooner however. I will review your ticket on Monday to see if there has been any progress.
If you need any further assistance, please let me know.
