So wouldn't the best place to ask have been in the Plusnet forum?

You also need to know whether or not they are on the Pro option.

Actually a forum registration.

That's no big deal, makes the forums much easier to use, gets rid of most of the adverts, and if it let's you ask in the place you are most likely to get lots of replies doesn't it make sense?

Especially if you later move to any ISP that has a forum here, and need any advice.

I actually tried to register to TBB about 10 years ago but it wouldnt let me use my hotmail email so I didnt bother. This is the first time I have felt the need to post a topic in those 10 years. (i do lurk though). Its really not a big problem RobertoS. But thanks smile

No prob.

Note what I said about the Pro option. That's aimed at keeping good latency for gaming as well as no shaping.

Added others to give perspective. 29/30ms is my usual ping from TBB, BBC, and most decent pings. My TBB ping stats show that.


Also tried 100 pings with Pingplotter:

As you can see, the min, ave and max pings to multiplay are good (not as good as the Plusnet network). I'm on Extra though.
