BT Exchange regrades

Hi, Can someone post a link to the BT site where you can see when your exchange is going to get the free speed regrade (if that's the proper term?)
Thanks.

Punch your telephone number into http://usertools.plus.net/exchanges and you'll get the info you need.

Bear in mind that these are guide dates, and a lot of them have been missed by BT.

Can you expand on this theory - as my exchange was due to be upgraded in April and am still waiting (and I appear not to be alone).

BT may have delays in the schedule, but you'd still expect them to follow the original plan surely, of upgrading the April exchanges first of all - In which case why are a lot of people still waiting nearly 3/4 months down the line!

i find it weird how each exchange needs upgrading, whilst others that have been upgraded will need upgrading like 2 weeks later. This is what has happened to my exchange lately. It got updated in June, and then July, and now the VP is in teh red and the next upgrade is in August. Hmm...whats going on?Huh

After a little investigation, it would seem that my theory is a red hering.

dont stress over it, if your anything like me on the Anston Dinnington exchange, you will get a registered increase in speed on your router but you wont experience any benifit at all. I once got to 70 Kbps with the wind behind me. My mate on AOHell gets 130+ and i generally run at 60.

ITS SICKENING.

Dont think that your upgrade is really worth having as it may no be any good at all!

When did your sync speed increase you could be being throttled by PN - try some BT speed test see what they give.
