plusnet first day + training FTTC


[link to this post]
 
Hi got my plusnet activated today i know they have a 10 day training so speed can go up and down a bit.

But so far my speeds have not gone past 40/2 im meant to be on the 80/20 fibre extra on my other FTTC connection i was at full speed straight away (70/23) so even with a training period id of expected closer the top end.

So do plusnet put you on 40/2 to start with and then slowly increase or do you think theyve put me on the wrong package?

Aslo on a side note has anyone got the instructions to unlock the modems ive got the instructions for the huawei but theyve given me a ECI one

Thanks for any advice ash

Twaddle.

Check your pacakge in your Member Centre and/or Call support. They don't even have a 40/2 product now, although Openreach do. I hope you haven't been repeatedly restarting the modem!.
Aslo on a side note has anyone got the instructions to unlock the modems ive got the instructions for the huawei but theyve given me a ECI one
The ECI one used to need opening up and mucking about with a soldering iron. Check here for updates to that info.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet Extra Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 53.5/15.2Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Hi

ive only turned it off once to plug my zyxel router in to check the sync speed its syncing at 3999/2000 (the zyxel is locked to LBO so will sync but no were to put plusnet user in to authenticate) except that 1 time its been pluged in used TBB, speedtest.net and JD auto speedtest app and all speedtests are all round the 38/1.80 mark (presuming over heads), Just in a que on plusnet support line now so ill see what they say

Are you on Value Fibre or Extra Fibre
If on Value then it should be 40/10 but may be set wrong as it used to be 40/2
If, however you are on Extra Fibre then someone has screwed up royally
Either way I have flagged it up in the Plusnet Forums as it may get picked up quicker that way

That's a myth, and applies only to ADSL packages (via BT).

For FTTC, the modem starts out as fast as it possibly can, tempered only by the distance to the cabinet (and the quality of the copper pair), with a ceiling placed by the package you have bought.

One synchronised, DLM monitors the connection. If it needs to intervene in an emergency (because of dire connectivity) it will, but I haven't seen this happen yet. If it needs to intervene because of "middling" errors seen on the line, it will do so after 24-48 hours. Intervention at this point is invariably to slow the speed down or to add interleaving (which tends to slow the line down anyway). I've never seen it increase the speed of a line in these first 48 hours.

For almost all people, that is the end of it. The line will stay this way for a long period.

For some people, this first intervention isn't enough to fix the connection - and the process will continue over the next few days. I've seen this happen on a handful of occasions.

After this, DLM monitors forever. If the line encounters a temporary problem, DLM will again intervene. In this case, it will usually trigger a resync next morning (between 4AM and 8AM). When the temporary problem has gone, DLM will remove (or reduce) the intervention level between 2 and 4 weeks later.

ISPs have no way to interfere or alter this process. The whole DLM process *can* be reset - but only by being regraded (to a new speed package) or when an Openreach engineer attends to investigate a fault.

just had an email

The following comment was added to the Question
Dear Mr Laister,
I have now placed an order to upgrade your broadband service to FTTC 80/20 and this will complete on 26/11/2012.

Broadband order reference: 1-14042XXXXXX

The speed will stabilize over the 10 days following the upgrade, so please allow this time to pass if your new connection speed is initially slower than expected.

If there is anything else that we can help with then please do not hesitate to get back in touch. You can reply to this ticket through the Member Center or you can call us on 0800 432 0200.

Kind regards,

Christopher Green

Why? Are you paying for a Static IP? If not, it can could change every reconnection.
