    A PlusNet Fibre Journey

     

    Ok, so I was on BT Broadband Service until this morning and now have switched over to PlusNet Fibre and thought it would be good for others to follow this process from a DSL Stats perspective.

    My Broadband Service via BT was there Fibre 1 option (43Mb – 50Mb) – capped.

    Plusnet Service is there Unlimited Fibre Extra (upto 76Mbps) – uncapped

    I am on an Huawei Cab and have previously had G.inp enabled, so will be interesting to see what real stats I finally end up receiving.

    (Note: I realise this is not a like for like comparison in terms of synch, but given PlusNet Unlimited Fibre Extra was at a lower price than BT Fibre 1 option, it could be compared in terms of ‘value vs synch rate’, maybe)

    Below Stats from BT Connection:

     

    Below Stats from Plusnet Connection after Line changed over:

     

     

     

    Early days yet and hopefully G.inp and Download Synch speeds will increase ?

    PlusNet re-synch after 4 days, G.inp is On downstream only and Downstream synch speed has increased by 10Mbps

    Fastpath has also retuned to Downstream stream as it had a 8ms delay previously,  now gone

    I hope SNR downstream will reduce from 7dB to 3dB giving me an extra 6 Mbps increase ;-)

    Day 6 and another synch with cab, SNR is at 6 dB now which gave me an extra 3Mbps downstream speed increase,hopefully will be reduced further to 3 dB

    Day 8 and another re-synch, now receiving an extra 3Mbps increase in download speed, stats general seem the same as day 6 except SNR is now 5dB downstream, hence speed increase.

    Day 12 and another synch, alas no real change this time.

    Downstream INP reduced slightly but SNR remained at 4 dB
