Threaten to leave PlusNet to get faster Broadband

I have been with PlusNet/Force9  for about 15 years and in general have been very happy with the service. I have recommended friends who are also happy with the service. However twice in the last 4 months my broadband speed has overnight reduced by 50%. On both occasions I raised a ticket and went through a lengthy diagnostic process which went on for weeks. On both occasions I eventually ran out of patience and told PlusNet that I was going to transfer to Virgin Media cable. On both occasions THE DAY AFTER I threatened to leave PlusNet my broadband speed miraculously doubled. I think there is a pattern beginning to emerge here.... Wink
