Extremely dissatisfied with upgrade service

Firstly let state I have been trying to upgrade my ADSL from ADSL-MAX to ADSL2+, since the latter became available in my area.   Along with being a BT broadband customer for 10+ years.


Initially I was informed I had been automatically upgraded, which wasn't true.   Eventually I was informed I was still on ADSL-MAX, but would be upgraded if I took out a new annual contract.   I did this, and received confirmation of the order (VOL011-**********) and that I would receive a service of around 17Mbps.   This never occurred and was left with a 8Mbps connection, with G922.1 modulation (ie. ADSL-MAX).


Finally yesterday (25th October) an engineer turned up and confirmed while my line could handle ADSL 2+, I was still configured for ADSL-MAX, even though all records stated I was on ADSL2+.   He upgraded my configuration, to around a 17.8Mbps connection, with the correct modulation of G922.5 (i.e. ADSL2+).


Today I noticed my speed had decreased after he'd fixed things, only to discover my router had been reset and I was back to a 8Mbps connection, with a G992.1 modulation.


Speaking to the help desk (after a 30 min wait), I'm just getting the run around being told I'm on an ADSL2+ service.  They simply can't understand that while I'm "on" the service, I'm not receiving it due to not being configured correctly.


Please assist, as I'm on the verge or just cancelling contracts.

Re: Extremely dissatisfied with upgrade service

if you have already agreed a new contract and that included upgrade to adsl2/2+ then contact the mods for assistance

Already tried that route (VOL051-***********), hence why the engineer came out.


The problem is someone seems to have reverted it, plus I'm extremely tired of just been passed around.   The line is fine, as I was on ASDL2+ yesterday.   I simply want it restored, as per my contract.

I've now been contacted (but not by the mods, I think). There's a new order going through to upgrade my connection again, which I've been told will take between 1 - 5 days.

Guess we'll see if actually happens.
