How can you be mis-sold something that was a free upgrade?, if you went to hire a car and they offered to a different car at no extra cost, the only catch being it was a different colour, would you really have been mis-sold? O_o.
Why not call BT tech and ask them to change your line profile to a higher rate?, might end up being unstable but it should raise a couple more meg.
Really though, as webby points out, the difference between 34meg and 44meg isn't that great, 10 meg equates to about 1.2mb/sec in relative terms, with you already getting around 4mb a second, would 5.2mb a second (the absolute maximum of your lines estimation) make such a huge difference?
it is not a free upgrade as they have signed me up to an 18 month contract when I have 8 months left which I could have used to shop around but I got sucked in by the speed upgrade and I actually think 10 mb more is quite a bit
It does to me. I have multiple charts open for financial trading using different time frames. I need any extra bandwidth I can get so Firefox stops flaming falling over!!!!!
When a charts stalls, Firefox goes arghhhhhhhh. God I hate that browser.
why would I want to go back to adsl my problem is I had infinity option 2 already and was getting 34mb download when they bought out these new speeds the estimate that my line could handle went up which led me to believe if I upgraded I would get a speed increase so I upgraded and have received absolutley no speed increase and they have made me sign up to a new 18 month contract so if my line can only handle 34 mb download why is the checker saying I can get 44.2
The checker ESTIMATES you can get 44.2. I does not guarantee it.
for the last time I know it is an estimate but if my ip profile says my line cannot go over 34mb then the estimate is wrong it is not possible to get up to 44mb so the estimate they have given is not possible to achieve so they have offered a product that they cannot provide
I really don't see what it is you're failing to comprehend.
IP Profile is not FIXED, it's what is automatically set for best stability, you can ask them to switch the profile if you want, it just may not be as stable.
it is not a free upgrade as they have signed me up to an 18 month contract
This was stated clearly when applying for the upgrade, at which point you're given an ESTIMATE of what speeds you could get under THE BEST CONDITIONS.
it is YOU that agreed to these terms, nobody had a gun to your head.
You agreed to an extended contract in exchange for the possibility of higher speeds - if you're not willing to take anyones advice, and for example, phone up and ask for your ip profile to be switched, then why even bother posting?
Just a word of advice though, if you're going to call up and ask for assistance, don't give the people on the phone the same attitude you've shown here.
