Its a fair few years since iv been on here.. Right until a couple of months ago was on a very old package from Force9 originally that gave me 20gig allowance at peak times but my peak times was 4pm till 12pm hence the reason I kept it because I could get most of what I wanted d/led in the of peak time so was in essence free. and D/L around 100g-120g a month But they did want me off the old account and they put me on the unlimited at a great price. So now can d/l when and what I want . BUT yes the big BUT is my SPEEDS lol as you shall see....
Now yee see iv been with Force9/Plus.net (no matter who.) since the start As in the old days of 2400 modems some 13 plus years now. And when we got te 14400 modems it was a great jump in speed
Yes I know it was slow back then and took me 8 days to download a old home made film Id seen on a site and not many wegs in size either LOL
History of my d/l speeds is about 6 years ago I was on the 8meg)speed) package I think and was only getting just over half a meg speed d/l. for a couple of weeks people helped and helped and in the end we got it up to around 2meg d/l
But since that time according to what I down load has not risen much as I am now about 3.2meg d/l and Im sure when I was on the very old package from Force9 that I had about 4.5meg d/l but Im not 100% in that. And the reason for me asking what you are getting speed wise.
This is what it says about my connection on the Plusnet site.
Estimated line speed:
2.5Mb (This may vary between 1.5Mb and 5Mb) - Checked on 2013-08-17 21:36:08
Current line speed:
The setup I have is my router is in the upstairs bedroom (gives me better wiFi to the radio shack) and is directly wired into the master socket. The modem is Thomson 870WiFi from around 2002-2004 years old. (Opps could this be the main issue do you think??? and that iv not replaced it in so long?) and the network runs both wired and wireless PCs laptops , tablets, set-top boxs and phones running on it Now all has been ok Iso far But I suppose that adding the Roku has shown just how slow the internet speed is as when trying to watch anything it is forever buffering. Iv even done it with everything else off and still the same.
And I wondered if there was anyway of increasing the d/l speed out of my current system by any hardware or tinkering I could throw at it without having to upgrade to FO that is.
And is the reason I was also asking what sort of speeds you are getting on the Plusnet Unlimited packages? I dont know what a 100% line speed should be Im not sure if it is said anywhere but just wondering if im loosing out big time?.
Any help greatly appreciated.
