Hi all -

I currently have what Plusnet called a pay as you go 2GB download per month 
account. For the same monthly charge, I can opt for what they call 
'Broadband Your Way' with a 15GB download monthly allowance! This sounds 
good on the face of it, but I'm wondering if it will mean slower speeds. 
I've had a look at and tried to make sense of the expected down stream and 
upstream speeds for different times of the day, and I'm not sure if I'll 
notice a difference between them, and what I currently experience. Firstly, 
I'm not sure how to check what current down stream and up stream speeds I 
get, but in the new package, they talk of download streams of between 256 
and 320, at the busier times of the day, but these numbers are also affected 
by what is being downloaded; the upstream speed is generally 128.

Is anybody on this list using Broadband Your Way, and able to share their 
experience of it with us? Or in a general way, can anybody say if the above 
speeds are adequate for larger downloads of music and audio books?

Thanks for any input -
