how much will it cost to go from 512 to max

how much will the regrade fee be if we want to skip the queue, because according to the statement on adslguide, bt have lowered their regrade fees.

Having Just read that it sounds like its now £5

on the BTw site it seems to be free, does this mean theres no Queue jumping?

I'm confused now!

Thats off course if Plusnet are providing us with a queue jumping option for MAXDSL. As I understand it there is an option to queue jump just yet and everything is still going on a first joined first upgraded basis.

ukdsl,

Thanks for that. Clearly something ( as well as a lot of other things ) I have missed recently.

However that is for if your upgrading your account as apposed to requesting a regrade ( as in from 2mb to 8mb but keeping the same package ).

Which in turn would mean a higher monthly charge.

You could of course downgrade again later (for a fee), but in the post referenced there was no garauntee that the upgrade would result in faster re-grade. Only an "I believe it will"

I read it as people wanting to "jump the queue" and get (up to) 8Mbps once the new packages were launched, just like paying £14.99 (or whatever it is currently) to get a speed regrade now, such as from 1Mbps to 2Mbps on the current packages.

I really hope that we can "jump the queue" and get an on demand speed regrade with the new packages, even if PN keep the current regrade fee and make a bit of money out of it and use it as a way of trying to prevent 180,000+ customers all wanting to do so!

And failing that, a reply 2 pages later from Ian Wild to a later post where the queue-jump style regrade had been asked about

I'd really like to order one of those 'business as usual' regrades for when my "up to 2Mbps" becomes "up to 8Mbps" in a few days time.

ukdsl,

I have a feeling that it will prove highly challenging for Plusnet to allow for speed upgrade requests. I say this as BT are limiting all ISP's to a set number of requests every day. Bearing in mind you have new signups, migrations ( who pay for a speed increase upon migrating in ) package regrades etc I dont think there will be much ( if any ) slots left for queue jumping.

Perhaps I may have to shoot myself in the foot and change my package to PAYG in order to get the new speed quicker ( but only possibly and not guaranteed ).

New signups (as in new activations) won't be speed regrades though will they, so you can take all that number of people out of it.

I think PN will still have space for day to day regrades if people pay for them, maybe it'll push back the freebie bulk regrades a bit, I don't know, but if you're paying to jump the queue, then what does it matter Tongue

If PN can't offer me an "on demand" regrade and another ISP can, then I really might have to think about going elsewhere, because I'm really not prepared to wait an unknown amount of time just to get a bulk regrade, especially with my exchange already showing as "green" and as having received the Max work done on it by BT.
