Plusnet Extra traffic management


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

Considering moving over to PN on the Extra plan with unlimited landline calls. I do download P2P and I believe this is throttled.

I only get 4.5mb throughput anyway due to my line being long. Do PN throttle over weekends too?

Hi,

I found this a great way to see traffic management for each product, including maximum data rates and the effect of Pro (£5/mo add-on):

"providers need to manage this bandwidth to ensure Internet usage remains viable for all users On the other hand, chuck our cut-down service another fiver per month and the rest can get stuffed. That's 'Good Honest Broadband' for you.

Am I alone in thinking this is getting rather tiresome?

I think if I was that fed up with my ISP I would ask for a MAC and move on ............. ages ago tongue

Even if you do have to wait up to 5 days to get a MAC grin

PN is a good ISP but I think the ticketing system certainly needs sorting out - due to poor, chaotic support I had to reluctantly move to another ISP frown - after waiting 5 days for a MAC tongue

Exactly, he obviously hates Plusnet, so move on, go somewhere else and stop the endless whinging! Some of us are perfectly happy with Plusnet, with all its foibles.
