Playstation 4 traffic appearing as Other\browsing

I was wandering if plusnet need to check their handling of ps4 traffic as it would appear the gaming and downloading I've been doing since managing to get hold of a ps4 shows as other or browsing.
When using the ps3 the other month games and download traffic always showed as Gaming. Now I don't have any gaming traffic showing up!

That's good to hear, thanks Kelly.
Any idea when that might be put on?

Hi,
We added signatures for both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 to our traffic management database yesterday ahead of the console releases. Our suppliers have been working with Microsoft to ensure the Xbox is properly detected as they've made big changes to ensure the Xbox One is IPv6 ready. The Playstation traffic isn't as different to the PS3 but again it should be detected correctly.
There are different types of traffic detected, depending on what you are doing. The actual gaming traffic on most products will go into our titanium (highest priority) queue. Game downloads like the day one patches and digital downloads will go in either gold or silver depending on product.

Thought you already added a signature for both next gen consoles already as per Dave's post which i've quoted? Does that mean it wasn't working and needs updating, or was it never added?

Not working as expected.  We discovered it the day after release.  (couldn't test it on the day due to PSN network being broken!)

All seems to have gone quiet on this part of the forum from PN staff recently...
Lots of un-answered posts.

Happy New Year all! Does this mean it's now in? All PS4 games will be indentified with the PS4 sig for Plusnet Traffic Shaping, is that correct?

Hi
Happy new year to you too.
I think that plusnet made some changes and their systems are now identifying some of the ps4 traffic now, but not all as I'm seeing a fair bit of traffic coming up as browsing when gaming.

Re: Playstation 4 traffic appearing as Other\browsing

Can anyone from PN comment as to wether anyone will be making further changes to identify some of the traffic that isn't being completely identified?
