V.92 = Better pings!!

If your unfortunate to only have the option of 56k dial up like me, you might be interested in the V.92 trial Plus.Net are carrying out. Check the game server page (Right hand side) for the link.

Try it out, and see what pings you get in your favourite game, and see what uploads speeds you get. Use www.pcpitstop for the upload tests, a pretty good site for checking your bandwidth etc.

I'm gonna be doing some tests, and I'll post them here. If Plus.Net see enough interest they should make it part of their standard package.

Thanks.

RE: V.92 = Better pings!!

From reading other +net forums, they are interested in v92 rollout but the FAIRCO 0808 access doesnt support it and BT have no plans to add it according to +net, so much as i'd like to. I'm not paying for v92 over 0845...

RE: V.92 = Better pings!!

It's something I would be interested in, after forking at £40 for a V.92 modem for the extra features!

Yes please, comments?
