Yes, that gateway is actually pcl-bng04. Plusnet should be updating the rDNS to correct it "real soon now". Roll eyes

Can anyone explain this result (more rDNS errors?)

These two hops are wrong (should be pcl-bng04):
link12-central10.pcl-gw02.plus.net (84.93.249.118) 2.449 ms

  2    10 ms     9 ms     9 ms  179.core.plus.net [195.166.130.179]

I'll ask for them to be updated.

Give them a minute... They'll try and blame Openreach

Re: Strange Plusnet Gateway

The slow x6 thread test appears to have been due to Firefox.
The x6 test was ok after restarting firefox.
