Got to admit that I was having a laugh reading your post despite the fact that by the time I got to Shopping Time I was getting bored and that about 50% of the post is total poop and 90% off-topic. I hope it gets left in place, then we can all learn about what's going on in the world crazy

I got all the way through it after coffee-make at halfway.

He actually makes a few good points amidst the several misconceptions and erroneous "facts". No solutions of course.

It's rather a shame he constantly has to display Tourette's Syndrome in his last two posts. I find it rather distracting and off-putting, rather than adding the emphasis I expect he intends.

I doubt if Corbyn would be wowing the lefties if he spoke like that tongue.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

If you can't make your point without swearing (masked or otherwise) then don't make it.

We have no issues with people sharing negative views of providers or other matters but these can be made without inappropriate language.

Downloading the El Capitan Beta 5 update (2.45GB) through apps store is taking an age currently, been going for about 10 mins and only reached 298MB.

Yet the other day I downloaded Beta 4 in a couple of mins... who do I blame for this one!

The deity of your choice? It is the ongoing trouble that unless you have monitoring of the whole network it is very difficult to state exactly where the bottleneck is - people blame their ISP but it could as easily be Apple or it might even be that there is an interconnect down somewhere.

'Twas ever thus - downloading the same size file from different places at different times can take vastly different lengths of time. Unlikely to be an ISP issue.

Well, to put it in perspective, currently I'm downloading an update from a usually very fast servers... my latency on my BQM's has jumped very high though the connection is barely transferring data, yet sped tests are performing fine... even over seas....

Oh and one of my BQM's has started to show some packet loss (which has become a usual thing but not until around 4PM - 9PM) so if its not Plusnet... I'm going to point the finger at BT Wholesale... reason for this pointing is that packet loss issues as I found out yesterday also affect my neighbour BT connection!

and before anyone points the finger at the NGA or Exchange... it don't happen on TBB's BQM only on one at Rapidswitch maidenhead which ping my connection, my neighbours and another 3 connections elsewhere...

I'm not trying to have a pop at Plusnet here... but very annoyed at the ongoing issues and sick of the lack of support that so many ARE NOT getting!

I just downloaded the El Capitan beta (6GB) through app store in about 11 mins. It comes from Apple's CDN server, same as all OS updates.

I regularly use downloads from Apple's CDN server to test broadband quality and have done for quite a while now, there is oodles of capacity and I have never once caught it going at less than line speed on BT connection at any time of day even on big release dates.

You prob need to raise this with Plusnet if you want it fixed.
