Will the speed upgrade be for everyone?

Hi,

I live in a village and it took me a while to get Broadband into it, I have just received an email telling me about free upgrades upto 8mbs, will this be for everyone or just a few exchanges.

I hope I can have it but if not such is life Smiley ....

Thanks

Everyone will be moved onto the higest possible speed for thier phone line, assuming 8meg is available on your exchange, otherwise you will get upto 2 meg. Bear in mind there are people on enabled exchanges who are only just in the distance for 512k so thats the best they are likely to get.

im currently on 1mb, does that mean for the same price i go on the next highest speed, im bit confused on speed upgrades, pls help me too.. Is it free as in just to go upto the next highest speed, but pay its monthly charges, or just free as in 8mb for example and pay same price as i pay for 1mb.

In short, your connection will be upgraded to the maximum it can handle.

Your current payment will remain the same.

Again, your line condition will determin what speed you can get. If it can support 4Mb & 8Mb speeds then when they become available on your exchange your will get it. If your line only supports a max of 2Mb that is the max speed you will get, even if your exchange can do faster.

No details about exchanges that support 4Mb & 8Mb speeds have been released. You will just have to wait and see like the rest of us.
