Re: Plusnet-- Unrequested Cease on Line

@grumpy
If this is a swap to the new network then I would pay careful attention to your line speeds after the event. Also if you use the Think Broadband Broadband Quality Monitor, I would watch that carefully too.
There is a long lasting thread on the Plusnet forum where people on the new network have having issues with massive packet loss and has been ongoing for the last 3 weeks. There is currently no solution and Plusnet are still investigating.
One work around has been to get a static IP as this alters how your link is routed through Plusnet's networks.
So just make sure to keep an eye on your line.
The thread is https://community.plus.net/t5/Fibre-Broadband/High-p...

AIUI having a static IP address on PN puts you back on the old network. Or maybe it is no longer available for new issue?

They posted that those on static are not being moved. This will be because they don't actually issue a static IP address as such. They hold a fixed one in the account and override the dynamic allocation. As the dynamic allocation on the new network appears to be at the BRAS instead of in-house that isn't possible.

I thought that they were being moved but that the tracert would go the old route so that you couldn't spot the change

I've read that too on the multi page new network thread. It was also indicated that the static IPs would be migrated later in the process not at the same time as others on the same exchange.
But as Plusnet are trying to keep everything secret about this process, who really knows what is happening? GCHQ are more open smile

I hadn't read that far, as I haven't looked at it for a while.

I assume that they are being moved later then once they have set up a true static IP address system. Rather than the pseudo-one currently used.

Was Upgraded to 55/10 yesterday but Cease was still on Line
Plusnet have confirmed that this is because I am due to be transferred to new network.
Many thanks to all for help and advice and will check line speeds after change over.
