Well I ran TCPOptimizer just to see if it was some issue on my PV NiC and rebooted. Now I am getting 65/16 which is closer to the profile
Surely this is because Matt adjusted your Plusnet line speed, as posted (albeit slightly cryptically).
Maybe. I just read my support update and they said they tweaked it. So they obviously have some control over the profile. I still do not understand why the profile says I am limited to 68.xx when the line is synced at 71.xx though.
Other annoyances are if my router obtains a new IP for whatever reason it has a direct impact on speeds. I noticed it had changed this morning and did a speed test and saw my download speed climb about 1mbit and my upload speed decrease by 3-4mbit. I thought this odd so disconnected from the DHCP, reconnected (this usually only takes a few seconds) and did another speed test.
It had now dropped to 42/2!
So I rebooted the router and waited for the 'long' login process. Speeds then tested at 66/17.
I don't wish to be rebooting my router everyday so I am hoping this was only due to Plusnet fiddling with the profile?
What's my speed? Who knows thanks to DLM! Plusnet FTTC. Openreach are pants!
