It would help if you didn't include the closing ) in the URL!

ssl produces similar results to http (so also bypassing their rate limits) - http was being limited last month when I last check speed so I wonder what they changed

I have now tried the labs test version on https and had similar results to the Flash version on all 3 sections of the tests (x1,x6,upload)

It seems rather strange to me that 1x is impacted, but 6x isn't - most likely that would indicate rate limiting and a complete mess up on Plusnet's system, as opposed to any network issue

If I was seeing such issues and no quick fixes - then I'd be looking at changing ISP, but I am now out of min contract period

Also a static IP
You are currently connected to gateway pcn-bng04.

This is located in Colindale Point of Presence.
and oddly slow speed this morning - 3 tests all download around 30Mbps when it is normally steady at around 50.5 Mbps, upload normally around 9.3 Mbps:

(sorry somewhat off topic as the single thread speed isn't an issue here, just the overall speed drop)

Bob Pullen confirmed that the majority of the AG gateways are gone and those left are not accepting new PPPoE sessions. So when you get disconnected that is it.
And that is how I got pushed off the AG gateways.

Been getting a lot of disconnects with Plusnet over the last couple of days.

Speed has dropped right down to 0.8Mbps (usually around 38 down / 8 up), just going to reset the modem again.

After a reset it usually goes back up but will get worse after a few hours.

I've been seeing this kind of thing on and off for over a week . The answer used to be use an AG gateway but that is no longer an option. Colindale is worse than southbank and thing are worse at peak times.

Regards,
Steve
