Request for thinkbroadband ping graph


[link to this post]
 
I am considering moving to Plusnet. I am having an interesting time with VM who I have recently signed up with. My graph is here:

Please would a Plusnet user post your graph so I can assess the extent to the drop off in performance in the evening.

Thank you

See the one in my 'all connection data' sig. I'm more of a midday to midnight user.

I have a Virgin Media cable modem 30Mb. I speedtest at 29.7Mb up / 1.9Mb down. Unfortunately VM are having nationwide issues with video streaming at the moment. Video streaming is just not useable due to excessive buffering.

http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Up-to-60Mb-Speed...

The first thread was over 50 pages before VM closed it and started a 2nd. The video streaming issue has been ongoing for months. I have little confidence that VM will fix it anytime soon.

Hence my interest in plusnet.

Thank you all for your prompt responses.

There's a lot red in there. Is everyone disconnecting their routers when not in use?

Some of them are off or using alternative connections that we don't have graphs for.

See link in my signature below (and connection type with Plusnet).

I'm on the Dunfermline exchange in central Scotland (probably too much info, but location may affect line quality too).

I discovered a week ago that the forum moderators and some others are testing something which means they are not on their usual IPs. It's under NDA so they are not saying anything. My first guess was that it was IPv6 but I'm told it's not that.

The way Plusnet's traffic management works means that streaming is given priority over all other traffic downloading loads of data. providing your telephone line is OK and you get good basic speeds, streaming will be fine with no slowdowns or buffering at peak times.
