Thinking of joining Plusnet FTTC


[link to this post]
 
Hello

I am thinking of joining plusnet FTTC and as a gamer can a few people who are on Plusnet FTTC provide me with a pingtest.net results and also a ping to this gaming server: ping 78.129.244.231 -n 25 and post the results.

Many Thanks

I don't know if the previous Plusnet user is on interleaved or Fast Path. I suspect Fast Path. Location also matters, I'm 11 miles south of Manchester.

Mine is interleaved and a wireless connection to my router which won't help anything:-
