Plusnet news

PlusNet has revealed information regarding the way that broadband speeds are distributed among its customers.

The internet service provider suggested that the mean average broadband speed attained by users connected to BT's 20th Century Network (20CN) is 4.5Mb.

Using data provided by BT Wholesale, PlusNet noted that among the 800 or so trialists currently connected to the 21st Century Network (21CN), the mean speed was 6.5Mb.

As well as showing the improved broadband speeds offered to PlusNet customers by BT's 21CN, the data also revealed that 15 per cent of its subscribers are still paying for 512Kb, 1Mb and 2Mb services.

Meanwhile, PlusNet also explained that broadband exchanges in the UK are split into three markets by Ofcom, depending upon how many wholesale suppliers operate there.

In rural areas where there is only one such ISP in operation (market one), speeds were found to be noticeably slower than in urban areas with four or more providers (market three).

PlusNet can currently be seen sponsoring ITV London Weather and will carry a series of animated idents alongside the programme until December.
