40/2 Fibre now 40/10


[link to this post]
 
https://community.plus.net/t5/Plusnet-Blogs/Welcome-...
Soon we’ll start to provide faster upload speeds to our ‘up to 38Mbps’ Plusnet Unlimited Fibre customers.

We know how important it is to be able to upload content quickly, especially to social media, so we’re making improvements and raising the maximum possible upload speed for customers on this product.

At the moment, customers on this product can get upload speeds of ‘up to 1.9Mbps’ but we’re increasing that to ‘up to 9.5Mbps’, at no additional cost. Your download speed will also remain the same, but you should benefit from faster speeds when uploading photos and video to the likes of Facebook or sending emails.

New Plusnet Unlimited Fibre customers will start getting the faster upload speed from the point of sign-up, and we’ll also start to move our existing ‘up to 38Mbps’ customers to the faster upload speed from November.

It was pretty important a while back when they decided to go from the 80/20 package they were using for everyone (rate limited to 40 for customers on the lower package) to then go onto the 40/2 package. They are now just heading back towards where they were.

Based on the complaints in the Plusnet Community when 40/2 was introduced, there'll be a lot of happy people. I'm still on 40/20 although I've never managed much above 7Mbps upload anyway.

Is this because the 40/2 wholesale product is being withdrawn? I wouldn't be surprised.

Guessing the old BT package of 40/10 kept Plusnet's package at 40/2, but the new 52/10 allows Plusnet to change to 40/10.

I thought 40/20s were moved to 55/10 a long way back.

Where do you get that from camie? smile

40/2, 40/10, 55/10 and 80/20 are still the current Openreach products. And re kasg there is no mention in the Openreach "Future price notifications" of 40/2 withdrawal.

Yes - should've been I think but it never happened to me (according to BTW Performance Test further diagnostics). I can only just manage 40 down and 7 up so as I say, it makes no difference to me.

The upstream IP Profile tells you if you are on a slugged 80/20 or nn/10 or 40/2 Openreach product.

Tested just now and I got :-

Download Speed 35.82 Mbps
45.74 Mbps Max Achievable Speed
Download speedachieved during the test was - 35.82 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 40 Mbps-45.74 Mbps .
Additional Information: IP Profile for your line is - 45.74 Mbps
Upstream Test: -provides background information.
Upload Speed 6.99 Mbps
20 Mbps Max Achievable Speed"


Below acceptable according to that but good enough for my purposes. Until very recently the IP Profile was 40 Mbps. Don't know what changed.
