Increase in central capacity April 2010

erx_200x200Those of you that haven't been keeping abreast of our Service Status feed may have missed the posts we made last week about us increasing the amount of central capacity available on our 20CN and 21CN broadband platforms. You can see the original announcements here and here. To summarise, we've now lit the last two 155Mbps segments of the 622Mbps central pipe referred to as 'Plusnet 16'. It's this bandwidth that's used to deliver broadband services to customers on our 'Up to 8Mbps' 20CN network. Customers connecting to the newly lit segments will see their traffic routed through the gateway known as pcl-ag02. As well as lighting the rest of 'Plusnet 16', we've also upped the available bandwidth on our 'Up to 20Mbps' 21CN network by adding a further 200Mbps across our two host links. Customers making use of this bandwidth will see their traffic routed through the gateways known as pcl-ag02 and pcl-ag03. When new capacity is added to the network, it takes time for it to balance and for a representative proportion of the customer base to connect to the new segments. Since the extra bandwidth was added last week I'm pleased to say that things are now looking nicely in balance! Smiley
