Plusnet using LLU?

Well they are according to

Which providers use LLU?

If a provider doesn't own its own network of cables and phone lines, it's using LLU, via the BT Openreach network. They include:

That rang a bell Cheesy


I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

Re: Plusnet using LLU?

That 'broadbandchoices' website has always been useless for making an informed choice.


Even today, if I check their recommendations for my location, ALL of the options are for "up to 17Mb",  which is very misleading (to the uninitiated) when the exchange is still 20CN congested "up to 7.15Mb" (on a good day) "ADSL Max".  


I would also hazard a guess that the recommended companies listed are only those who pay a commission to be included on the website, so there is no mention of any company that I would choose to migrate to.
