Connection Time?

I am about to move over to PlusNet, I was wandering what the connection times are like.
I am migrating over, my current connection time is: 454:20:54
Is it this good with PlusNet?

Re: Connection Time?

I think you are boasting  Grin
But seriously, I generally leave my router on 24/7 and don't need to reboot hardly ever.
Currently I'm on about 150 hours, but 500+ is typical.
Occasionally, BT or PlusNet (who knows?) force a reconnection - and this isn't generally noticed (except in the stats).
I take a reading of the noise margin/sync rate from my router every 5 minutes (whilst my main PC is on).
I plot a pretty graph.

Re: Connection Time?

Reconnections can be caused by various things - occasional load-balancing by PN (which probably only affects each person once or twice a year), an engineer treading on a cable in the exchange - or, of course, just a bit of bad weather. But you certainly won't find PlusNet making a habit of disconnecting you.
