Slow downstream today?


[link to this post]
 
Hello,

My current downstream rate is 19047kbps on ADSL2+, usual throughput around 16Mb. Most of my speed tests this morning have been in the 1.5Mb range. There seem to be a number of reports on Twitter and the official forums, but no official posting by Plusnet anywhere?

Upstream seems unaffected for most people. Just curious if anyone here is experiencing issues?

Many thanks,
Sam

Thanks for posting, looks like it isn't completely widespread then.

I normally see a downstream rate of between 13 and 15 Mbps, but today, I am getting about 1.5 Mbps.

Until I saw this thread I thought it was just me, but maybe it's a wider problem?

The status page is showing no known issues. frown

There are at least two threads about it on the Community Forums - Here's one.

An interesting post from that.

After reading the many posts on here, the PN forums and down detector (and seeing a neighbours connection) I've called and cancelled my upcoming connection.

Thanks for posting this Sam, You did a better job than it seems PN have done so fa!

Everything fine here in West Sussex, did some speed tests earlier and just now, getting around 61/19, as expected.

Maybe 5 to 10% of customers


[re: Clippit] [link to this post]
 
A quick peek at recent tests this afternoon a couple of times suggests 5% maybe 10% have an issue

OX, ME, PA, LA, NN areas by what we are seeing
