Re: UPGRADE OF 40MB TO 80MB SPEEDS ?

It will be in effect a profile reset I think.  Because they will need to knock off your connection first, to remove the 40mb cap and then when you're line comes back on, it will have the 80mb cap applied.  You won't notice anything yet though, and as Webby has already stated on this thread, depending on who's made the MSAN in the cabinet, you could be upgraded anytime between 1am and 4am.

Windows 8 is a waste of time. It is soo buggy. And the start menu/ new screen is somewhat more of a headache than when having a broadband problem.

Re: UPGRADE OF 40MB TO 80MB SPEEDS ?

ok so thats ruled out the upgrade causing my decrease in speed. I dont think i will notice any increase in speed as my line is quoted as 30.9 mb but i asked the open reach guy and he reckoned i get about 50 but i thought id upgrade and see anyway cus its not costing me anything at the end of the day.

What's the harm? Nobody will care if it isn't really used alot, I downloaded it to try on my sisters old computer, keep putting it off though.
