One warning about Plusnet and the 80/20 trial. A number of users who were on 40/10 or 40/2 saw a DROP in speeds when they went on the trial. Some were resolved but at least one was never resolved by Plusnet and had to drop out of the trial to get back his previous speeds.
I will second that, although I am not convinced yet that the problems are due to the sync speed but more due to PNs inability to identify and resolve issues with the trial.
All my problems occurred after I upgraded to Extra Fibre from Value whilst on the 80/20 trial. Before the package upgrade my connection was approx 65/18, stable and fast. Then they cocked it all up. Jelv helped me by identifying a configuration issue with my stable speed at PNs end but after that, nothing.
Now I have started to suffer drop outs that are becoming more and more frequent and are only resolved by leaving the router off for 15-20 minutes every time. I have reported this and my throuput today is diabolical, worse than my old pre-fibre connection.
Do the tests they perform cause this? I appears download is fine but very little is getting through on the upload side!!
I understand its a trial and there are risks associated with it but I really think this is a PN issue rather than a BT FTTC issue as everything was fine and dandy before they upgraded my package
NB just a note to say that I seem to have a usable connection for the first time today, speed test indicate 54/12.
