New to Plusnet today. Allg Good Fingers crossed


[link to this post]
 
From Pipex in the early days through O2, then BT, have now moved Line and BB to Plusnet. Line was supposed to move today and BB tommorrow. But both got switched today. Caught Plusnet out, but I rang and got through to a chap at 9am this morning straight away. He switched things on at his end after I installed the plusnet Hub one. Ex Openreach box/HH3, download 1-2 Mb faster, upload 2 mb faster. Pings that were already good are 7ms on Ookla smile. Nothing wrong with BT service, just prices, BT offered a 'special deal' that was still higher than Plusnet once the Discount period expired........ I would have stayed for the new customer only prices. I realise Plusnet owned by BT, quite ironic.

I noticed that another post had some stats out of the Hub one, I cannot find these can I have some pointers please, need to update sig also smile

BT Infinity 2 80/20

Try going to Troubleshooting > Helpdesk in the router GUI.

Use the Ginp Formula to determine if your vdsl2 connection is with or without G.INP.
Divide your IP Profile by your Sync Speed and the answer is 0.9669 (with) or 0.9679 (without)

Re the connection speeds it's possible the DLM has been reset, so on open profile. (Sync as fast as it can). Assuming you don't mess around with it the first time DLM will do anything is tomorrow night.

If it stays faster after that, great smile.

Looks fine, although the speedtest in your sig is obviously misleading

Use the Ginp Formula to determine if your vdsl2 connection is with or without G.INP.

Speedtest results in sigs are always misleading smile.

Edit - looked at it now. How very right you are.

You should do a speedtest now, before DLM kicks in, and then do one in 10 days time wink

There isn't a 10-day period on FTTC, in terms of line training. The BT Wholesale stuff about that, which was garbage on ADSLx, is simply not applicable.

You've never seen speeds like since that because it is simply impossible to get over 80Mbps download, particularly on a BT WHolesale connection.

Re BatBoy's comment about speed testing now, I agree. Also again during the daytime tomorrow. DLM may slug it tomorrow night, as I said previously.

Incidentally, what do you mean is "very misleading"? My previous post?
