I think I read that quite positively
thanks so much for all the detail.
Itís a tough call isnít it because any other provider will only give you 50Gb max and that could easily get used in a month.
The DrayTek is great but I suffer the same problem as you - if one of the WANs is down in a particular way that the router thinks itís still up, then all traffic suffers. Would be great if you could set a throughput minimum like you can when itís in failover mode.
You speeds appear to be good, my Three reception has been quite variable and I have been testing some antennas from Alibaba (AliExpress) my house does look a little Heath Robinson whilst I test Three using a PAYG SIM before I sign.
I think unlike you I have two VDSL lines inbound (TalkTalk and Vodafone) whereas you have just Plusnet (btw it sounds like itís worth moving from Plusnet because my combination of the two VDSL providers works 100% now for 1 month).
Do you mind if I go a bit off-topic and ask about you DrayTek setup? Have you experienced problems with DNS when your primary WAN fails (or you unplug it in a test). From what I can tell the router has primary DNS and it uses WAN1ís DNS details for this, which of course when WAN1 is down then renders WAN2 useless because the DNS requests donít work. I have even created some load balancing routing rules that I can turn on/off to test the speed of each individual WAN from my phone (ie: if I enable a particular routing rule it forces my iPhone traffic down a particular WAN so when running Speedtest I get just that WANs result - thatís the theory anyway because it doesnít work, and it it seems to be because of a DNS issue (I think). Wondered if you knew what I was doing wrong?
Thanks again, very reassuring to hear your story and I think itís worth the Ďriskí of at least me trying Three for a year!
