Offer: "A special upgrade" - Just for me apparently!

Go to solution

Today I received an email offering me an upgrade to Superfast Fibre Plus at no extra cost.  I'm already on Superfast Fibre Unlimited with BT Mobile and limited BT TV (no sport).  As far as I can tell the only immediate benefit of upgrading would be to get the Smart Hub 2 for only the £9.99 delivery charge, a data boost to my mobile and the Keep Connected Promise bit.  I live in a small flat so wi-fi is currently not a problem.  I'm getting 48.8 to 49Mb/s download to the current HH5 which the OR engineers said was good given my distance from the cabinet.

So my question is should I go for it or wait for another offer?

Cheers and thank you.

Hi @RIC9380 

I suppose it's whether you can make use of the double data, but if it is actually free except for the delivery charge, then what is there to lose? 

You'll also need to have decent 4G coverage for the 'keep connected' promise, it would be no use to me because I can't get 4/3 or even 2G inside my house.

Hi @RIC9380   If you split the WiFi bands then don’t get a SH2. The option has been removed.

Are you happy with your current connection? Is it causing you any problems?

if happy and no problems then if not broke don't fix it

Thank you for your replies. I suppose that I'm slightly tempted by the offer of newer technology for nowt! I'll do a bit more research but in the meantime any further advice or comments would be welcomed. Cheers once again.

Just to say that I'm just going to leave it for now. Thank you for the input.

Newer doesn't always = better.
