Almost quadrupled the average speed of the Plusnet router :datass:

I’ve been considering doing this too, but every time I look into it, I read that certain kits are not compatible with the Plusnet routers, so I get cold feet. What have you invested in? (And which router do you have?)

I have the Amazon Eero 3 packThis one, but got it at half price during Black Friday.

I still have the standard Plusnet router (not sure which model but think it's the currently provided one) which despite being not fully compatible seems to work perfectly fine without changing any settings or general faffing about, the only caveat being that some advanced features like blocking certain devices, limiting access times and content blocking don't work (currenntly) but as I don't need any of that I'm fairly happy with it.

Cheers. I actually had a kit (TPLink, I think) in my Amazon basket in Black Friday week, but by the time I’d checked compatibility it was sold out, and I now resent paying full price!

I bet Origin downloads are still slow as strawberry float though.

At this speed, it would take less than an hour to download the data that made up the world’s first image of a black hole (which, because of its size, had to be stored on half a ton of hard drives and transported by plane).


That's a big strawberry floating image :shock:

Upgraded our home internet yesterday so we're now getting about 150mpbs which is about the best we can expect now until someone gets their act together and extends the fibre rollout in our area
