Seem interesting as the speedtest from thinkbroadband was pretty rapid faster than before when traffic prioritisation was removed.

Must have been because of the 1948GB per day throughput they knew was being released by you Philce wink.

Slow speeds, laggy browsing, viop calls dropping, poor streaming (netflix etc)

Since the network change speeds have been erratic.

I was on 80/20 with them for over 4 years.

Ive moved to a much smaller ISP, more expensive, but in 2 days the difference is massive.

Latency instantly dropped from 25mS to less than 10mS.

Let us know how good a retention deal was offered, I found the deal offered to me for 20CN ADSL wasn't any where as good as previous years, but I still decided to stay with PN as I've found the connection to be reliable over those years.

Mmm Maybe. Things do seem to have speeded up a little. Pages appear to load easier. But then I have never suffered from stuttering with Netflix and the like.

I too am out of contract but haven't moved simply because at the end of the day, it's an Openreach product. Same wires, same fibre.............. whoever I sign up with. And when I had my last fault, last month. PN did deliver, both in keeping me informed and getting OR to fix the problem (2 day appointment)

I went to a local provider (not that it makes any difference). Not as cheap as the offer PN put to me to stay, I wasn't willing to sign up for another 24 months.

I had an issue with the connection initially when I migrated, (my fault, I changed something on the router without realising that prevented me from connecting), I logged a support ticket, got a phone call within minutes, even before 8.30 am. Then had a lengthy conversation with them to resolve the issue. Id still be on hold with PN waiting for an answer!

Call charges are massively cheaper, no connection charges at all.

PN are not the small ISP they were when I joined for the first time over 10 years ago.

Im not convinced that the shaping being removed would make any difference, but I'm surprised it wasn't mentioned when I notified them that I was cancelling.

99.9% of users with PN wont face an issue/wouldn't notice anyway, that's their target market.

So far Im glad I moved.....

It might be that the prioritisation breaking was causing more issues than it was 'fixing'

Must admit, i have noticed today that you tube seems to 'load' videos slower.

If i watch one and click the time bar further along before the loading status bar, i get the buffer wheel.

This is on Chrome.

I would have thought that considering its a lovely sunny day, that most people would be out and about.

PN have not been a small ISP for a few years now since they belong to bloated Toad.
Most of the time they have been fine for me, but i need to have a look around and see what is available.

This is with the line in use and streaming etc.

You can obviously see when the kids get home from school and start downloading the internet!
