Plusnet adds yet another segment of bandwidth

Plusnet adds yet another segment of bandwidth

We've got some more good news, there is even more bandwidth available for you all. That's right, we've lit another 155Mb of central capacity, that's 4 segments lit within the last month. The data you use on your broadband connection travels across these segments of capacity, so in basic terms we've just increased the amount of bandwidth available for all your internet needs. If you connect to this segment you'll see a connection to PCL-AG02 when you look at tracerts or use the Gateway checker. This is the first new segment on "Plusnet 14". As ever when adding new capacity it can take some time for the network to ‘balance’ (i.e. distribute users evenly across gateways) and sometimes it is necessary for us to disconnect a number of users in order to accelerate this process. At present there are no plans to take any action of this kind however we’ll let you know if that changes via a service status post. There’s an RSS feed for service status at http://usertools.plus.net/status/status.xml if you wish - this also propagates to our twitter feed so you can get status update notifications by following us at http://twitter.com/plusnet too.
