If you login to the PN portal it will show you the current line speed:-

What does it say?

See if you get the complete result from the diagnostic part of the test at bottom of webpage it follows on from the initial test.

Image of second part of test > http://s18.postimg.org/3tofbvthl/BTw_Test_Diagnostic...

It will/should show what sort of throughput you are getting just now along with sync rate and IP profile.

Edit > It's best to do these tests with a wired connection not wireless.

Could be you are now using a less congested gateway after the connection dropped and reconnected, plenty of reports and discussion about it on this forum and others?

Definitely was a problem with the low speed result from the test when compared to the BT IP profile which was also matched by PN as seen in the portal, so no issue with PN's lagging behind BT's IP profile.

This link should show which gateway your connection is currently using:-

http://usertools.plus.net/@gateway/

If your connection drops again then you could end up on another gateway which could be good or bad for speeds depending if it gets congested.

Don't forget, as others have pointed out, it isn't a simple case of the gateway we are on. There are several links between the BTW Cloud and the gateways, and the congestion can be in there. From the PN suggestions that it's a BTW problem I think it is the links from the cloud that is the problem.

Gateway hopping has the side-effect of possibly ending up on a different link. I have several time seen on this forum people on the same gateway with completely different experiences at the same time

See SIN 471, the description of the handover and the two diagrams. Figure 2 is the clearer to me. The MAPs/MEPs may be where the congestion is.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.
My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync 58162/14182kbps @ 600m. - BQM
