Migrated to Pulse8


[link to this post]
 
So using the reason that Sky increased the line rental and talk package I left. Pulse8 arranged a new line and simultaneous provide for fibre.

Engineer turned up when expected, did what he needed to do, checked the line 69Mbps down was the maximum attainable and ensured the BT OR modem sync'd.

First 16 hours great, speed at just over 65Mbps (2mb better than Sky) and over 18Mbps up. Friday, 3am for some reason connection was changed to 40/10, emailed Pulse8 who got on the case. 2 days later download was back to 65Mbps but upload was stuck at 6Mbps. Another email and 24 hours later upload speed is back to 18Mbps.

Ping is between 12-14 milliseconds.

Speed test graphs at any time of the day are better than Sky but will keep monitoring on here and SamKnows.

So all in all a good result and great customer service from Pulse8, thumbs up from me!

Now wondering if I would get a better sync with a Billion 8800NL instead of the BT OR ECI modem...

Your BQM looks like a bit of congestion just starting to show at 9:00pm

Well it started at 21:00 and finished at 22:30, so ....

Why have you changed it from live to a three-day old snapshot? Live is far more interesting and useful - even to yourself. I find clicking on mine in my sig if I want a check is far simpler and quicker than going to the Main Site >> Profile >> BQM smile. The snapshots are on file anyway.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Thought I had setup a live guessing I pressed snapshot by mistake, should be fixed now.

If you see a something odd from 2030 until 2230 I was download Wolfenstein with two Netflix clients running as well smile

Yep, that's back to the original, as in your OP.

There's no need ever to reset it. It is live, end of smile. Until you change your IP address.

They seem to be a decent provider, certainly been helpful the few times i've needed to talk to them.

Although tbh I don't really use my pulse8 DSL it just sits there idling most of the time, it's only used when my plusnet FTTC goes wonky or sometimes If I want to play with a different router but don't want to take my main connection down.

As good as Pulse8 are I'm somewhat tempted to replace it with the 50GB EE deal, that said I'm rather put off signing a 24month contract with EE.

Yeah this is my issue, I won't sign anything longer than 12 months any longer. Don't see how they can justify a 2 year lock in.

I may switch back to Sky depending on the Sky Q Silver box and what it needs...

Found Pulse8 very good with regard to customer services. At long last my line is sorted thanks to them. Bit of peak time congestion recently that they chased and all 100% now.
