1mb upgrade from 512kb

Could somebody tell me what it would cost me to upgrade to 1mb service from 512kbs.

My current monthly bill is £22.99, which i belive is £21.99 for the service and £1 for my second domain name.

Cheers
Russell

To upgrade you would be charged the following

One off charges: £50+vat
This breakes down to
£35+vat regrade fee for BT
£15+vat regrade admin charge by PlusNet.

It is currently a very manual and labour intensive process to use the regrade system. This should change soon, once automation becomes a reality from BT.

You would then be charged the monthly price of ADSL Home 1000, £32.99 per month (inc vat), plus the £1 for the domain.

If you're paying £21.99 that means you're on the ADSL Home 500 account.

To upgrade to ADSL Home 1mb, it looks like you'd have to pay a £58.75 (for a monthly contract) or £70.50 (for an annual contract) activation fee. I'm not sure if that's right, but that's what it says on this page.

EDIT: Yep, that information is completely wrong! :roll:

Thanks for the speedy repliy, If i decide to go for the upgrade what would the time scale be and would there be any downtime?

I beleive the timescale is the same as a activation, 7 to 10 days.

The downtime is small and is usualy 5 to 30 mins. This usualy happens during the night though.
