Do Plusnet support a test username which bypasses their realm, that you can try in the PPPOE dialler?
It's not an ISP facility, it's BT Wholesale. There are two, one for ADSLx and one for fibre, but I'm not sure what the two are. An ISP rep or an OR engineer posted the difference a few months back.
As I remember it there are three levels.
Test 1 is the normal test.
Test 2 is (I grant you this), optional for the ISP to route differently within its own network. (There's a SIN or similar somewhere).
Test 3 doesn't get routed to the ISP's routers at all. (Covered in the same document as referred to in the previous line).
