Is it correct that you cannot upgrade to Fibre 900 if in contract?

So I have been trying to upgrade my FTTP to Fibre 900 - hardly a massive priority given current climate, but still!

It's available at my property - if I try to do an order as a new customer though, I get this :-

ADSL Checker :-

When I rang to upgrade yesterday the value team guy said he could only see 300Mbps available to me, and he indicated it was probably because I was in a contract.

Anyone in contract that has managed to upgrade?

Cheers!

Yep, I was in contract on the 300Mbps package and was able to upgrade to Fibre 900 package without issue.

It is masrked as KCI2 though which I think means that the equipment isnt fully in place yet?

Not 100% sure though

Good to know that being in contract is not an issue.

Dunno about the KCI2 thing.

I have no upgrade options available to me, so no idea what the issue is on that front!

So the 1000Mbps needs different / upgraded equipment at the exchange iirc.

The KCI2 marker is usualy a sign that costs and such has been agreed by not finalized / built yet, someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

My ADSL checker when I had the FTTP installed said up to 330. It subsequently changed last month to up to 1000.

I'm on a Nokia headend I believe - I have the tiny single port ONT.

Yeah it's very possible that the KSI2 means that the head-end upgrade has been agreed price wise, then but hasn't yet started to be built.

I'm on a Huawei single port ONT myself.

KC12 assure refers to initial FTTP install and nothing else.
