Upgrade to Adsl2+

Hi I recently moved my Mum to BT from another provider. However the connection is super slow. She's been going crazy as she can't video call her Mum or other family. I can't get up straight away but from what I can tell I think she's on adsl speeds which aren't great particularly upload. Can she be moved on to Adsl2+ as I believe that's what she was on with previous providers again judging by speed's. Thanks.

Re: Upgrade to Adsl2+


Fibre 1 or fibre 2 is available, and they would be much better for video calls,

You can upgrade online, or by calling 0800 800 030.
