When is Infinity going to be upgraded to 80/20 speed ?

i hear in the press that BT iinfinity is being upgraded soon to   80/20

 

has anyone got any news about when and cost if any

 

as they will have to compare with VIRGIN i would have thought

 

and Virgin upgrade was free to all

There's a few threads on this at the moment. There's no information other than that it's coming. Nothing on pricing or dates as of yet.

Hi Terry, that does not mean anything, Virgin don't give you free access to BT Fon or BT Openzone. There are always going to be differences between companies.

 

But I hope your rightSmiley Wink

i have had bt fon and openzone for years now

it is allows out of reach for signal

 

so i am not too impressed with any of them anyway

Also on Virgin boards there are complaints that due to the high speeds and not enough local backhaul a couple a people on the 100meg package downloading the internet on a node can make a pretty horrible connection for everybody else.

I think the complains on Virgins site equate fairly to the ones on here though regarding connections / slow speeds / dodgy wireless / the Homehub / etc.

 

Whenever there are such large userbases there are bound to be a few issues.  Neither party is perfect.

 

And there are bound to be teething troubles with new services (like the 100Mb / Infinity / Infinity-80 / FTTH / etc) too.
