Re: Are PlusNet speeds in meltdown?

God, they still haven't fixed this yet?

The problem is definitely Plusnet-specific.

Last I heard Plusnet were still in denial about this, and still hiding their network latency graphs which they used to boast of once upon a time.

Is this widespread and thus ISP meltdown, or just the face of contention appearing on a few nodes for a few weeks on what is a consumer priced service?

Occasionally feels like contention, but generally downloads and streaming are fine, so I assume the traffic management is working. Some more esoteric websites / protocols are at peak hours sometimes feel a bit off using the application.

However latency seems okay from my BQM graph, despite the peaks from my netflix usage wink

I noticed an extremely small spike in average latency (<2ms) during Christmas/New Year but it has been fine since, this has to be a regional issue. I've had absolutely no issues since the start of January here in central Scotland.

This was done yesterday afternoon: TBB Speedtest

Hasn't changed much: Quality Monitor

Never encountered any packet loss either, even during Christmas and New Year.

I am seeing congestion issues today on speed test, however not really noticing anything on just browsing (it's allow slow at 1m). The connection has only been up since midday (possibly BT working on telephone lines getting ready for FTTC)

So a peek at a massive thread elsewhere and a few people seeing single thread issues and signs on congestion on even multi-thread.

I would run with something in between - there's contention somewhere on the consumer priced service and it seems fairly widespread though the cause is clear.

For me it hasn't been especially service affecting as I've been able to do everything I've wanted to. There has been some impact but as you rightly mentioned it is a pile high, sell cheap service.

Latency is higher at peak, speeds are slower, it's not been a killer.

For reference here's the current latency to the Beeb - it's excellent.

I'll post later once the congestion monster starts to do his thing.

Slow PC, proxy or av software issue I'd suggest, hence the horrid latency.

Clue is the long gap with no speed at the start.

Use the time to actually eat and sleep rather than stay up all night pattern searching the reams of PlusNet data then.

I'm getting occasional awful VoIP quality where what I'm hearing is significantly slowed for a few seconds, then there's a click and it catches up again. It's only happening in the evenings.

I've been using VoIP for a considerable time and it's only started happening recently.
