I've found uploading has become a real dog, averaging around 800b/sec
outgoing but I'm not so sure whether thats demon or my modem. Also
downloading is now sat a crawl, usually around 2k/sec on a 44,000
connection. I did notice though when they brought the new US link online
around two months ago I did get fantastic download speeds for a couple of
weeks. Also could the weather affect my connection as I'm pretty sure the
actual copper from me to the exchange is extremely old.

Same here, I've heard some very good things about PlusNet and also some real
nasty stories. I think this is possibly more to do with the SurfTime
lottery than maybe the ISP.
