Not, sure. Here's my laptop's score. (Lenovo U430, not sure what WI-FI card it has)

I was a little bit farther from the router on this one though.

You said MByte, these are Mbit.

That's right, sorry, it's sometimes easy to get the two confused.

When the B is big, it is Bytes, when the b is small it is Bits.

I love Plusnet, I'm only supposed to be getting 38 down and 20 up.

Unlimited usage is great :D

 

How are your experiences with their support? when I called up I got connected to someone in 10 mins and they were really helpful and did it all instead of bouncing me arouond. I'm still stuck on unlimited ADSL (12/1) though.

I cant really say as I have never needed to call them as I have never had a problem. I am very happy with their service, best provider I have ever had. I switched to "fibre" online through their website so I didn't even need to contact them for that.

Probably they got some business-packages? Kabel Deutschland has them, where they can double your upload from 6 Mbit to 12 Mbit.

I would think so, too. An ISP doesn't just offer more than doubled speed out of nothing, like some people in here seem to think that.

indeed, the isp hes with is actually another isp with a changed name (bt) who is the company who owns every isp infrastructure in the uk expect virgin media, he will be on the 78/20 package and by the looks of things doesnt even know and will be paying more.

In that case, the marketing works very well [emoji38] [emoji1] .

He may not be getting the full speed for whatever reason.

BT and Plusnet are completely different companies. BT own all the infastructure and rent it out to other companies (in this case, plusnet) for a lower price per line that what a consumer would get as Plusnet would rent a very large number of lines.

 

You are wrong about the price too. Pusnet 76mbit+weekend calls is £10 for the first 6 months and £20 a month from there. The equivalent BT package (76mbit, weekend calls) is £26 per month, only for the first 12 months. I can't find what it is after, so one would assume it would be quite a bit more expensive. 

 

Another thing you to pay for is line rental - for plusnet this is £16 a month and for BT it is £17 a month. 

 

Overall you pay £26 per month for plusnet for the first 6 months and £36 after. For BT you pay £43 a month for the first 12 months and more after the first 12 months.

 

Also included in the cheaper price is support that doesn't suck and is based in England rather than India. I got what I wanted first time and within 20 mins calling plusnet support but my friend who uses BT still hasn't got his issue fixed, 3 months later.

See above.

Oh right I though it was 38/20 & 78/40. Well I'm paying for the 38/10 but the speed speaks for itself, I can show you my bill if you still don't believe me.

 

EDIT: Ok this is last months bill with some personal details erased of course.
