plusnet new network


[link to this post]
 
So seems plusnet have a new network, would I be far off suggesting the old network was frozen in terms of growth whilst the new network was been built and possibly the cause of the performance issues that caused some of us to jump ship?

Or second theory after reading more posts, bottlenecks have been diagnosed on the BTw shared platform so plusnet have moved to the BTw dedicated platform.

Unless they are moving to WBC.

Maybe also IPv6. In fact if it really is a new network it'd be a bit silly of them not to include provision for IPv6.

In reply to a post by kitz:
Myths

Plusnet is highly unlikely to ever use WBC, nor do BT RetailConsumer use WBC. This is a myth I see again and again on other forums that really needs to be put to bed.

Why on earth would a BT owned company use a third party (eg Murphx) for backhaul transit when BT own what is supposedly one of the best CORE networks with the most redundancy. It would be like British airways flying all their passengers on Virgin Planes

I agree in the light of stuff I have seen since that they aren't going to WBC, but what has Murphx got to do with it? Any CP can use WBC if they wish. Like Entanet do.

Also I agree BT Consumer don't. It would be more sense to describe them as White Label BTW.

I agree with what kitz has posted on her forums. and it seems very likely this is a move to WBMC dedicated (which is still BTw core network but not the shared MSIL's).

I'd copied the link out of the first post in the topic I'd originally linked without spotting it didn't take you to where I thought it would. frown

Fixed it now!
