You know very well Tommy that the major reduction is the Openreach IP Profile, which is common to all FTTC, including Sky and TalkTalk. That is ~0.9679 of sync when G.INP is not implemented and ~0.9669 when it is.
As I said, on Plusnet the effect on FTTC of their Current line speed is at most 100kbps.
Deliberate misinformation for the sake of having a rant for the nth time is not helpful to people who come here to have things explained to them.
Edit: Also your references to millibits per second are pathetic from someone who professes to know what they are taling about. Megabits per second is Mbps, equalling 1,000,000mbps.
Firstly We all know that you are still defending the indefensible (Plusnet)
And my reference of mbps or with a capital M if you prefer was to bandwidth and not HDD space(millibits) lol
And as i have been a plusnet customer too who had a VDSL2 80/20 service, with a BTW IP profile of 77.44Mbps fast-path and 77.35Mbps since G.inp'ed
When the secondary Plusnet profile was set Automatically by their systems to
77.40 or 77.30 the max achievable downstream throughput was around 72.50 or less, when requested by me they set it to 78Mbps throughput was 73.5Mbps
Since i migrated to another ISP would also use WBMC from BTW my throughput is 75Mbps So my conclusion is that their secondary IP profile was restricting /artificially capping my max downstream throughput rate and not by the 100/200Kbps that you alluded too ,
So it could be said that the use of this secondary IP profile is really about them saving bandwidth so their claims of not slowing customers down are factually incorrect IMO
Also there is the other issues reported quite frequently on various forums , that issue being the Failure or long delays in the Plusnet IP profile updating , in the 2yrs that i was a customer, i had to call them several times about this,
usually after DLM had relented and my full sync rates had been re instated the plusnet profile failed to update for more than 24hrs , and was only changed because i rang them and asked them to manually change it
Oh yeah this is very relevant as it is directly related to the now missing icon , line speed or whatever they call it AKA plusnet IP profile and the often incorrect BTW speed estimate ,
I don't think a little info regarding how this secondary IP profile can and does affect customers throughput rates is "Deliberate misinformation" at all people deserve to know about this assuming they didn't already, Why should i keep quiet about it ? toi keep your dream alive maybe?
and another observation you are factually incorrect regarding BT openreach being responsible for the IP profile, The IP profile is a BTWholesale implementation and nothing to do with Openreach
