Why the run around just to get Interleaving Turned off.


[link to this post]
 
Had problems with Plusnet at the start now still getting problems, asked for Interleaving to be turned off on the 13th, got assured it was turned off but it hasn`t.

Seems to take days for tickets to be answered.

Can anyone reccomend an ISP that I can use on a BT line that don`t have these CS issues?

Willing to pay £30 a month for a decent service with 40-60 gig allowance and good for gaming??

I have no other LLU at my exchanbge :0(

If you're mostly interested in usage outside of the "peak" (9am-6pm) hours then I'd highly recommend AAISP. Very clued up staff and unless you have lots of usage during peak hours it works out at quite a reasonable pricing system for home users.

There's also Zen at £25 a month. Only a 50GB usage cap though there's no peak/off-peak hours distinction.

IDNet Home Max?

Though you would have been better asking for suggestion in Which ISP? or General Broadband Chatter tongue.

What is hard to find on the AAISP site is that between 2am and 6am usage is metered at 1000GB/unit.

Also note that they only meter downloads (unlike Plusnet).

Thank you all, you have given me some great information to look over.

Will have a look and get back later.

In reply to a post by RuralFelsham:

DS Path Mode : Interleave US Path Mode : Interleave
DS Interleave Depth : 0 US Interleave Depth : 0

AFAIK these figures indicate that interleaving is effectively off. On ADSL2+ you don't appear to be able to switch to fast path, only reduce the interleaving depth to zero, which is effectively the same thing.

Hi,

I think i`m ADSL 1 as the Exchange hasn`t got ADSL 2 (I think)

My STD Code is 01449 and it runs off Rattlesden Exchange.

I missed the G.DMT, which of course indicates ADSL Max, however I still think interleaving depth of 0 indicates that it is effectively off - it's just the way your router reports it.

Damn - I spotted the G.DMT but not the Interleave Depth 0. I think you are probably right, unless that leaves Impulse Noise Protection running.
