Plusnet - A ping odyssey

My intention is to basically start this thread off as almost like a blog, just a way to record how things are when problems arrise, seems pointless me pasting rubbish in to other peoples threads and highjacking them,  so here it goes......

19:30 - 21:00 MW2 is unplayable. Given up trying.
It's great how instead of looking forward to playing when I have a couple of free hours, I dread even trying because I know I'll spend the whole time getting furious and wondering how to word my next rage tweet to @Plusnet.

Re: Plusnet - A ping odyssey

Here we go again. Midnight Sunday night (Monday morning) hits and so do the ping spikes. I've noticed this for several weeks now, and nobody can say it's peak time.

Re: Plusnet - A ping odyssey

It's been good for me at all the different times of day I've tried today. Hopefully it will remain the same for the evening gamers.

Credit where credit's due - i didnt have any problems last night either, i ment to do a trace to see what gateway i was using but got caught up with the gaming while my connection was playing nice : )
On a different note, spotted this on the tube on the way home last night, made me chuckle

Re: Plusnet - A ping odyssey

Good again for me this evening. I wonder if it had anything to do with the virtual routing changes mentioned earlier today? Time will tell.
