Thought I'd seen a thread/question before, but can't find it. Can I swap the hub one for the existing thompson now, or do I have to wait for the message saying fibre has gone live?
Fixed! Go to the fix.
Re: Upgrading from ADSL can I use my hub one before i get the notification?
You can use your new hub one prior to your "fibre" broadband going live.
I found that once the fibre service had really started (which doesn't happen when Plusnet send the e-mail saying it has) then I needed a router factory reset to get it going again and some intervention from Plusnet before I got the fibre speed.
I had the Hub One connected for ADSL as I was going to be away when the change over was actually going to happen and there would have been big trouble at home if the Internet was broken until I returned.
As it was, service could be restored until I got home and had a proper look.
I found the whole process poorly communicated by Plusnet as the e-mail which says your service has gone live really seems to mean that Openreach have scheduled the work.
I had a previously failed fibre migration because I was moving my phone line to Plusnet and because that was pending I couldn't have the fibre upgrade.
On the positive side, now it is going I've been very pleased with the 80/20 service (currently measured at 69/18 on my phone over WiFi).
Doing this again, I might have left the previous arrangements in place until the fibre change over. At least I now know a factory reset of the Hub One seems to be needed.
