Help Moving to ADSL2+

Hello,

 

My exchange was finally upgraded to WBC ADSL 2+ at the end of 2013, almost 8 years after getting ADSL Max. However after waiting for a further 9 months, I still hadn't head anything about an automatic upgrade, so when I renewed my contract on 1st September I requested an upgrade. After checking the line I was told that it was available and should be activated in 24 hours, but the confirmation email I received said "We estimate your speed will be: between 6.5Mb and 8Mb".

Your speed test has completed and the results are shown above, however during the test an error occurred while trying to retrieve additional details regarding your service. As a result we are unable to determine if the speed you received during the test is acceptable for your service. Please re-run the test if you require this additional information.

"Sorry there was a problem checking your details. Please check you have entered the correct telephone number and then press 'Start Test' again."

 

"Sorry, but we've not been able to match all of your details

You can continue and run our download speed test now, but please note that we will only be able to offer you a limited assessment on the meaning of your results."

 

I have a Home Hub 2.0A, but currently I am using using a Netgear.

Re: Help Moving to ADSL2+

Firstly a big thank you to everyone and a quick interim update. After sending my details to the moderators, I was phoned back on Wednesday and now have an order for ADSL 2+ on my line, to be activated on 17th September (it takes 5 Working Days). We are then going to see if the new connection, fixes the issue with the BT speedchecker, having tried it with the phone number and the BBIP. I will let you know how I get on.
