apparently got 76Mb from plusnet

speedtest stuck at 15Mb

they said 'WAIT TEN DAYS LOL' but really? ten days for it to quadruple its speed? :chin: already on day 4 as it is.

the plusnet hub is the least configurable thing I've ever seen as well, so I'm just using it as a modem and letting my asus router sort dhcp, wifi etc out

however it's still 15Mb even when it's in its normal mode with straight ethernet to pc

What BT do on fibre to keep their uptime high is keep dropping your speed on any disconnects that are unexpected. So if you have a load in a short space of time, they keep dropping the max sync speed pretty rapidly until it's stable.

Once it's on there you are basically fucked until it's been stable for a long time (probably 10 days if that's what they are telling you) after which time your line sync speed slowly increases back up.

Google BT ip profile and speedtest and I think you can confirm it by running a BT speedtest that tells you the max sync speed.

Might be talking bollocks as I've been on cable for ages now, but that was the score in the old days :yes:

Only rebooted it once though.

11Mbps now

My ADSL was quicker than this :waiting:

Are you able to see the sync speed on the plusnet box?

Chuckles 02-06-2016 22:04

Their own stuff monitors for drops though. You might not notice because it reconnects in seconds.

Chuckles 02-06-2016 22:05

do that thing

Fibre DLM sounds like a bitch. Ask on thinkbroadband forums tbh, they're mint

I got full 76Mbps from it being turned on. Has an engineer been out? He should do a line speed check himself when he installs it.
