Lets stick to facts.
There is nothing wrong with Plusnet Internet for Gaming - just buy a decent router   Roll eyes

Apologies if you've already tried it but if not this is well worth a go:

Also if you use torrents at all it's worth rebooting the router every so often (via the software interface so it's not seen as a fault by the exchange) as it seems to help the general performance.

I can't fault PlusNet what so ever for gaming and I don't even have the pro add-on. Highly recommend them.  Smiley

i cant fault plusnet either, i do have the pro add-on and have never experienced any lagg or other funny business and since ive been with plusnet a year this may i have only ever been disconnected once, no fault of there own i may add,  i would recommend them to anyone.

its not plusnet's fault you're lagging on MW3, its called lag compensation and its the games fault - http://callofduty-8-modernwarfare-3.com/is-mw3-lag-compensation-penalizing-players-with-faster-conne...
or you could just google lag compensation MW3 and see the hundreds and hundreds of posts moaning about it.
