You may be lucky and not see significant issues with crosstalk. My line performs pretty much the same now as it did over 2 years ago when it was put in and I am certain that lots of people will have signed up since then.

No problems on ADSL1, must be a fibre broadband routing issue thingy tongue smile

What a difference a couple of hours makes - but this must be down to the gateway.
At 16:24hrs I got 37.4Mbps download and 7.2Mbps upload and 16ms latency (this is about my normal).
At 21:46hrs I got 19.3Mbps download and 3.5Mbps upload and 70ms latency.
Both above results on ptn-ag01 so I hopped and landed on pcl-bng01 and -
At 21:55hrs I got 38.04Mbps download and 7.24Mbps upload 16ms latency.

p.s. My BQM isn't pretty. - just realised that the link to BQM is 'live'. It wasn't pretty at the time.

In reply to a post by MrSaffron:
So a peek at a massive thread elsewhere and a few people seeing single thread issues and signs on congestion on even multi-thread.

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?
I was seeing issues primarily on single-threaded TBB tests throughout January and early February but after BT carried out some work on my exchange things returned more or less to normal. I can still see a few issues Sunday and Monday but fairly minor.

We have lines from a few providers for test purposes and our PlusNet circuit is monitored like all the others on a CQM basis A&A style.

The PN connection does exhibit of late some severe increases in latency at times - especially 8pm-11pm, not every night, but becoming regular enough we had noticed it even though the line is only there for test purposes.

Certainly when we have used it, we've found streaming performance horrible of an evening compared to other test circuits, though this is by no means scientific testing.

My speeds have been up and down, router reset solved it last night and I'm ADSL2+.

Sitting at 3MB/s (usually 12MB/s) this afternoon around 5pm but the pings have also been up and down, according to SpeedTest, my latency is 19ms.

Bit disappointed, maybe they're oversubscribed with all these cashback offers and they were featured in moneysavingexpert which probably means a large influx of users.

EE 4G for now, and Plus Net soon...

Looks like ptn-ag03 had trouble between 11:45 and 13:15, and Colindate IPSC took a dip around then as well. Are you on (legacy) ADSL or ADSL2+ perhaps dropped to ADSL?

Seems to be harder to jump gateways. A 30 second disconnect and reconnect didn't change my gateway.

It does normally need a bit longer than that, as I think it takes longer than that for the system to drop the PPP session anyway. Which means you stay signed in on the same one.
