Plusnet and Usenet


[link to this post]
 
Do Plusnet throttle Usenet?

Reason I ask, I think I will be let out of my contract early with BT infinity as they are oversubscribed in my area with no resolution.

If it's exchange contention I don't think moving to Plusnet is guaranteed to make a difference.

I would of thought the congestion is BT retail side of things?

and Wholesale is uncontended?

I agree. It doesn't look like "exchange contention".

BT Wholesale does not run its network without contention, so a chance changing provider may make no difference.

If at any time you get a significantly slower speed on usenet than you do on a speed test moving to Plusnet Unlimited would be beneficial.

My speeds are fine, but torrents are throttled unless I use a VPN.
