You had a responce from the OP about PN here, prior to this post so your question is somewhat provocative it seems to me. It seems the OP same as your good self will not put up with poor service and is not shy to say so if the posts regarding BT are anything to go by.

Different strokes for different folks.........sort of gives a purpose to our forums don't you think?

Not everyone sees the world through your eyes.smile

Not everyone sees the world through your power-crazed eyes. I had NOT linked the OP to the other post. Unlike some anoraks, I have better things to do than scrutinise every post in order to nitpick.
My post was not half as provocative as yours. Anyone with a grain of sense would realise why I was asking what problems he had. We all get the same down OpenReach copper, which makes ALL ISPs superb while things are running correctly. It's only after a problem that a fair appraisal can be given. Superb or otherwise. So how about you get off my back till I actually break the rules. If that request causes your usual banning Hissyfit, so be it.

Pity about your latency and jitter though.

Whilst I understand the sentiment the 100 miles difference the 2 of you have to the test server would most likely account for much of the ping change. It would only be fair to compare them on the same line with the 2 different providers to provide a close comparison. Perhaps professor has a similar result from when on Plusnet that would give that proper comparison?

It's interesting that, smile. It had me wondering before I posted.

The thing is, I'm 11 miles south of the centre of Manchester. So over 100 miles to Milton Keynes. In fact considerably more than that, as if I'm right, I route through Manchester, so we have ~ 112 + 11 = 123, or 115 + 12, depending on which "crow's flight" estimate you get and add the distance to Dialstone House in Manchester.

So that 50 miles has to be more like the distance to where my IP address is registered, not where I am. But that's probably Shefffield, 92 crow miles from MK.
