it is the fact the products they sell are because they think that most people want to download i would happily sacrifice 25% of my download to add it to my upload as for me it would make a big difference

Thu Feb 26, 2015 6:14 pm
i would threaten them with oftel or something as it is not what your paying for really makes no differenece what ISP you use the only thing that differs is customer support or the cost of the product
hagz:
Thu Feb 26, 2015 4:43 pm
why should you have to dc all the time. Plusnet is owned by BT so i suggest they use a ot of the same hardware.
Slavechild:
Thu Feb 26, 2015 12:27 pm
There have been a few mentions of being on a bad plusnet gateway and to just DC and connect again until you're on a different gateway but I've had 3 gateways and all have been the same :/

Ok so to add to the list of sites that can only be access via proxy: Tumblr, grooveshark, a few "careers" sections for insurance companies i've been looking at and the forum for an arma server I play on. WTF
hagz:
Thu Feb 26, 2015 6:44 am
hmm make sure that plusnet are not filtering it some ISP's do it by default now.

My connection has been nice and stable today but I found that some sites, like the national lottery site, can only be accessed via proxy. I can assure you it isn't an 18+ block so god knows.

I see it as a privilege that i get to work with them, even though that working with them is only shuffling there poo around ;). Hehehehe... No i do groom, feed, clean their stables and take them outside. And now i have my own horse again which i really enjoy if you couldn't tell already XD.

Shire's are lovely big friendly giants! but you don't get many around here apart from the ones owned by old breweries.
Cotillion:
Wed Feb 25, 2015 11:52 am
I take care of a 18 hand shire on regular basis, he is my big friend ;) And 16 hand is a nice size, especially if you know how massive this breed gets (I got a Belgium draft horse). We expect Tank (his name) to become a real massive example of this breed. He is already pretty heavy build.
Slavechild:
Wed Feb 25, 2015 10:56 am
Ah that's a nice size, I'm so use to the new forest ponies, that get to around 14.5-15 hands max, I forget how huge other horses can get!
Cotillion:
Wed Feb 25, 2015 7:56 am
Ow, he is just a little boy atm, i think somewhere around 11 hands. He will probably end up somewhere around 16 hands.

Ah sweet :D thanks hagz! It was slow this morning and then fine for hours until this evening when it keeps swapping from fast to slow :-s I'll kick up a fuss with plusnet if it continues.
Slavechild:
Tue Feb 24, 2015 6:30 pm
How many hands is he now?
hagz:
Tue Feb 24, 2015 5:39 pm
basically your router talks to the exchange equipment as it does not know how fast to send the data initially. so basically they send info back and forth and then work out what is the best stable speed. if your still getting 200kb then i would definitely be complaining. Drop me a PM mate if you want any advice i work for BT Openreach

should be around 16mb but i'm betting from 200kbs to 2mb, I don't get the whole settling thing at all :-/

Slavechild it takes a max of 10 days for a line to "settle" usually it does it in 3-4 days. what connection should you be getting?
