do you think this is pretty niftie without having to upgrade ?
Yep at those speeds you'll have great user experience. Always pays to work out exactly what you need broadband to do. even watching films etc will only use a part of what your getting. if your needs change later ,well then reconsider.
However, if you could get (say) 20% more at NO cost - why not?
I presently get very similar speeds to you - I'm upgrading on 19th - i'll let you know how it goes.
Hi.Just to want share with you about my try to upgrade.
I place d the order on Thursday 12/04 via online form.I had confirmation that BT received order and on my account was showing it will be complete on Friday 13/04 till midnight.That never happen.Later in the evening i received the message,they have difficulties with my order,and need to investigate,will back to me on Tuesday(today).Till 4 PM i don't have replay from bt,so i phone them.Nice ladie told me they need 2 more days to investigate,because its up to some bt suppliers.This suppliers told them I'm not able have higher speed,which is not true.My estimated is 79,9 up and 2 down.Dont know what to think about it.
Hmm this is odd.
The maximum you can get on Infinity 40MB on a speedtest is 37.5 right?
This morning, following my order request, I have now got a tiny boost and consistently get 38. This means I must be on the new speeds.
But on speedtester.bt.com my profile is still 38.71?!
How can I be getting a true 38 download speed and still have a profile of 38.71? *confused*
EDIT: Restarted the router (not the modem), and now I am getting 42Meg actual download speed on speedtester. So the profile was clearly stuck. I bet my BT vision is going to cause problems with this again. I have had issues with sticky profiles.
