Re: Plusnet Gateway are down!

My FTTC was down for about an hour between about 5pm and 6pm, I've only just noticed from the BQM. Modem didn't resync, just lost the session.

Well what do you expect when they are offering cheap cheap cheap?
you want higher availability - start paying for it.
you want better infrastructure - start paying for it.

Yes mine also went down during the evening so switched off and went off and did some clearing in the house.

Please don't talk nonsense, I've been with Plusnet many times over the decades(including the last 18 months on FTTC) and they aren't any worse than anyone else.

If you look at the "Collated users online" graph....
How does one do that? Bear with me I'm a newcomer.

The bottom graph. The higher ones I believe to be the individual Plusnet MSILs.

A few hours ago the big crash was showing. All of the affected ones being bng series.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 56.6/14.1Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

I've ended up on ptw-bng01 and download speeds are more variable. I had a quick look the Plusnet community forum (not a place I usually frequent) and I've seen only one report of lower speeds. Should such a problem as this have any bearing on speed?
