FTTP Speeds:

Will Plusnet ever offer the other packages that you can get with FTTP if say you went with BT, like the 200Mb service and the 300Mb one?.

Re: FTTP Speeds:

There's no definitive answer we can provide. We might do this in the future but we may not, it depends on various factors. Sorry that I haven't been able to be any clearer.

Re: FTTP Speeds:

You would expect them to offer it if/when FTTP goes live as a fully launched product as it's straightforward provisioning on any FTTP speed variants.
Most people are happy with 80/20 as that meets their needs and requirements.

Re: FTTP Speeds:

A wireless repeater/extender will reduce throughput by half.
If you want to extend wireless range then a secondary router/access point connected to your primary router with Ethernet is the best option,  failing that use homeplugs

Re: FTTP Speeds:

Just been and took the extenders back and got some homeplugs which has sorted the problem straight away, getting full speed now, but still only getting about 30Mb on the wireless devices (mobile phones/tablets) i guess there is no way of sorting them so they get full speed too?.

Re: FTTP Speeds:

As your FTTP appears to be OK, but you are having WiFi speed problem, perhaps you'll get a wider audience if you ask the question in another forum rather than this slightly 'niche' one.  Wink

Have you looked at the frequency you are using?? I had a similar problem in that my router was on the same channel as a neighbour.  Changed to a vacant channel and speed increased.

Re: FTTP Speeds:

Have tried all the channels and pretty much the same speed on them all, my computer which is connected to the homeplugs which perfectly at full speed, its just the wireless devices like my phone, laptop etc which is not, i have read that sometimes wifi just isn't gonna be as quick as wired etc so maybe i will have to put up with it and if i want full speed just use the main computer connected to the homeplugs, if there isn't a way to fix this?.
