Plusnet just upgraded me to 8 meg

The data from the BT site is only a guide and shouldn't not be 100% relied upon.

For example the guide says for my connection, I would need a BT engineer to install my connection in order for 1Mb. However I upgraded my connection to 1Mb without any problems at all.

How exactly are they doing the upgrades? An area at a time? And would this not be a good idea to announce who is getting it?

I do beleive you are mixed up between several messages.

I don't remember PlusNet saying all customers would be able to take advantage of 8Mb right off.

The free upgrades of speeds upto 2Mb start this month though.

Philip is right plusnet didnt say all customers would get 8mb right off, you should have recieved an email which states

From April, you will be able to take advantage of these faster broadband speeds as they become available, giving you a free-of-charge upgrade to the fastest broadband available.

BT is working hard to ensure that as many people as possible are able to receive the maximum available speeds. Further, BT Wholesale's changes enable us to determine our customers' actual speed setting, instead of this being set at BT's local exchange.

Broadband Speeds

Well, I recieved an email from Plusnet telling me that in April BT are upgrading and as a result my internet will be upgraded to the maximum speed my house/phone line can handle up to 8Meg.

Then was told that it was not going to be an automatic upgrade, that each customer would have to ask for it and then it would take place.

Since that original email about 2 Months ago, I have recieved no more information and the web site shows nothing about any upgrade.

I am happy that I will get an upgrade (hopefully) but what is really annoying me is the fact that Plusnet have not said anything and it seems are taunting us with the idea, and then leaving us to stew.

Just my thought...

what I find awful is that everyone on >2meg lines are gettin FREE upgrades upto 2mb basicaly, where as those on 2meg already are getting nothing.. surly we should get a price cut or something seeing as how 2meg is now so cheep you can upgrade everyone for free?
