What does this Plusnet field say for your Current line speed, after you log in?

I recently had the same sort of problem and found it took a couple of days before anything happened after the ticket had been logged with Plusnet. But I really cannot fault them on the follow through. They even supplied details of the tests that were carried out. In the end I had an engineer come visit.

Give it another day or two, then if no dice, put it up on the forum.

my current connection profile is 17a connected Data Rate 76123 kbps - 19999 kbps, its not the connection at fault but the achievable throughput...

You obviously don't understand
The Plusnet quoted Current Line Speed is a copy of the IP Profile rounded diown a little bit and your throughput is limited by that
That is why I told you to use Chat to get them to change it

The 17a profile is the particular frequency mapping of the Openreach VDSL2 service and we all have that.

The IP Profile is set by BT Wholesale, to limit the true data speed sent to the DSLAM, to avoid packet loss. Plusnet get an update three or four times a day listing any changed IP Profiles, and set their Current line speed a fraction below it.

Occasionally that update procedure fails. In cases such as yours what has normally happened is that for some reason you had a low sync which dropped the IP Profile and CLS. When you later had a re-sync which raised the IP Profile, the update to Plusnet failed.

As advised, you can contact Plusnet support through Chat and get it manually adjusted. A less reliable method that does usually work is to disconnect the modem for tem minutes or so, then reconnect. This will probably cause a change of IP Profile, and when the Plusnet copy later takes place it is likely to pick it up and correct the CLS.

Reconnecting at this time of day is likely to give you a lower connection speed and therefore IP Profile than doing so well inside daylight hours.
