Not really, we get 36/6 at work, and we need the 6 upload not 2. I suspect the same applies for many people. Plusnet really should offer 40/2, 40/10, 55/10 and 80/20.

Or, at least, 40/2, 55/10 and 80/20.

Its a mass market decision I expect, someone has probably crunched the numbers and decided that more people just want as cheap as possible up to 40mbit vs the people bothered about having more than 2mbit upload.  I consider plusnet a mass market isp now.

definitely don't like that 40/2 if a line is able to receive a download of 30 to 38Mbps the upload should be able to send 4 to 8Mbps

>>>  decided that more people just want as cheap as possible up to 40mb

I notice that TalkTalk has undergone some changes this week. - New logo, new site, new "TalkTalk for Everyone"......    and withdrawn 80/20.

Their 2 products are now named:
  • 'Faster Broadband' (adsl2+)
  • 'Faster Fibre Broadband' (40/2)

which to me is pushing descriptive license.

They are also claiming to be the first ISP to offer all-in-one pricing that includes both line rental and broadband rather than separate pricing.  Again not quite true - SSE & vodafone on their fibre products.

Well yeah, faster than what? to call something faster there should be something slower to choose.

I see you either typod or they fixed the site.

The adsl package is now called fast (not faster) broadband.

I'm uncertain but is the basic Plusnet G.993.2 service provided as 40/2 Mbps DS/US?  :-\  If yes, then the US looks about right.

 :-[ Excuse my ignorance, but by 40/2 I assume that's 40 Mbps download and 2 upload..right?

Again not quite true

Since when has such a trivial matter as facts stopped TalkTalk creating good advertising copy?

How do BT and PN prices (the real ones, not new customer offers) fit together for the various service levels? The reason for my question is that I wonder if it could be a way to lessen the attractiveness of PN's lower level offer, so making customers consider BT instead, were any cost uplift not too severe.

Other matters like the drop in service standards too, could they be part of an effort to merge PN completely with BT? Of course in doing that, they carry the risk that the group will lose clients to other ISPs. Some will have moved anyhow, but provided the risk-reward looks good, why not?

Yes.  :) 

DS = Downstream and US = Upstream, from the viewpoint of the end-user.
