Shocking peak speeds ?


[link to this post]
 
Anyone else getting shocking peak speeds via Entanet/Freeola? During the day can get >6meg but in the evening <1meg ? I think the spread rules out my kit and line. Its getting to be a pain in the ***.

I recently complained to bt that speeds at 00:02 immediatly shoot back up to 7Mb, on an 8Mb line but from around 6pm till 00:02 speeds vary in the evening from assured rate of 1Mb to around 4Mb but after 00:02 speeds are fine,
Do you think this is the case with you?

Cheers.

I'm fairly sure this won't be related to Entanet. Freeola, like a few partners, manage their own bandwidth levels.

Entanet peak is daytimes, not evenings. I presume Freeola's pipe is getting busy at night.

All seems good for me on Freeola.

Unless somethings changed (that I'm not aware of) then your connections capacity is still down to the usage of the IPSC/WBC node you are connected to.

Check your node's usage and see if it matches your bad throughput.

Apart from Entanet/Freeola you could also be having congestion at your exchange. You can check the Virtual Path status here on the Plusnet site: http://usertools.plus.net/exchanges/

I take it you've also monitored your line's connection (sync/errors) to ensure it's not having a problem during the evening?

Are you saying something's changed? Freeola don't have a 'pipe' they just use the Enta nodes...

My speeds are all over the place at the monent but Im pretty sure that is down to the yellow VP status of my exchnage - I even managed a 0Kbps BT spoeedtest one evening recently thats from a line that should top 5 megs easily.

Any ISP that thinks that selling my click traffic is acceptable is MisinPHORMed
Market 1 (IPSC) - a BT group investment NOT Spot
VP status Yellow - About time BTw rewarded us for our over priced 8 meg crawl with some investment!

Morning,

There has been a general belief between many Entanet partners and other ISPs that Freeola are L2TP based.

Morning.
This pops up here at regular intervals - see 'last thread this was discussed' link where Freeola comment (not L2TP) smile

If they were an L2TP provider wouldn't users see a difference in their tracert results?
However Freeola are doing things it works great for me - good prices, good allowances, good off-peak times with lots of free extras smile

Yup still the same. No L2TP for us.
Have you contacted our support yet so they can take a look?
