No.

Your kit will offer an MSS of 8960, the remote end will come back with 1460 and you use the smallest of the two.

The direct peering Dom put in place for the server has gone and it now goes via telia > godaddy

Kitz does it in 14 hops

Makes little difference at the end of the day.   
Plusnet uses dedicated WBMC and their own MSILs.  BTr does similar and you sometimes see the bRAS and core routing hops which are always hidden using L2TP for some other ISPs that use BTw shared. ...  although I notice you miss out on all the telia routing.

A good result.  :)

One quick query, please. What are you using as your modem (or modem/router)?

We moved out of our previous property shortly after we had negotiated a new 40/10 speed contract with Vodafone, so recontracted at the current property in order to avoid the not insignificant cancellation charges. Unfortunately we then experienced significant congestion in the evenings, even though we were many miles closer to their HQ. However, some months ago VF must have made changes to their backhaul, because the congestion disappeared, and hasn't been back since! Good for VF! :)

Last week I noticed that the contract would end in mid April - probably just as most ISP's are experiencing maximum disruption with staffing levels!  :(
I rang customer services the day India announced a lockdown, and neither the phone nor online chat was being responded to.  :( :(
I tried the 'upgrades' option on their automated call handler, and got through to someone in the UK who was extremely helpful! As a result I am now on a 80/20 contract (syncing at 77/20) and paying marginally less than I was for 40/10! The switchover was seamless, just after 3:00am last night.  :D

One happy bunny :thumbs:

I've noticed a complete lack of Openreach jobs on one.network lately, but still Virgin "new connections" seem to be going ahead, unless they end up missing the deadlines that presumably could have set months ago.
