automatic plusnet gateway swapping


[link to this post]
 
is it normal for plusnet to kick users to swap their gateways?

noticed this morning all my ssh sessions dropped and I see my ppp was dropped at 6am to put me on a different gateway.

It could have been BT (in fact that is more likely).

I hope it isnt a regular occurance given broadband is supposed to be 'always on'. Been dropped will drive me nuts as I have established connections that should last for days/weeks at a time.

There's nothing about it in the Plusnet Service status emails. Have you set your account to be sent those? They are very useful.

Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 59.4/14.4Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

no that would need to me to use new login details I assume.

Lets see what happens from now on first, it may be related to me been a new customer as I have noticed my rdns has changed from yesterday and also my throughput is 2mbit down suggesting a profile change. Before I maxed at 7.7mB now its 7.5.

so basically none of you guys had a ppp drop last night and you usually have long uptimes?

I get this occasionally, maybe every couple of weeks, usually early in the morning.
