I've been told by BT that I am being transferred from my standard broadband to a fibre broadband "free of charge". The email has come through today and the promised down load and upload speeds are actually slower than my standard broadband. Anyone know if the quoted "maximum" is really a maximum? If it is, and the speeds really are slower, can I get out of the contract?

in order for the forum members to help please can you post the stats from your router (if hub enter 192.168.1.254 in your browser) and if HH5 then go to troubleshooting then helpdesk and if HH6/SH2 then advanced settings then technical log information .
enter your phone number and post results remember to delete number https://www.broadbandchecker.btwholesale.com/#/ADSL
Someone may then be able to offer help/assistance/suggestions to your problem
If it's a free upgrade there won't actually be any contract. If the speeds quoted are the best it'll just be a case of cancelling the upgrade so if you can post the previous info as advised you'll get some advice
from dslchecker results it appears you had a 6.8mb connection speed in 1/20 which was well above your expected speed range for adsl. it does not look like you will get that speed on the fibre connection so maybe you should just phone and go back to adsl
you are obviously a long way from your street cabinet
