Trying to switch to "Unlimited BT Infinity 2 "


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I had Infinity 2 connected on Jan 25th, and now that the new "totally unlimited" products are out, I'd like to switch to that so that I don't get throttling of torrents at peak times. I understand I may extend the length of the contract by doing so, and that's absolutely fine.

I've called BT on 0800 111 4567 and been bounced about between tech and sales. Sales eventually put an order in, but there has been no change. The Glasnost test still says Bittorrent downloads are rate limited, and I still see poor download speeds prior to midnight.

For anyone who has successfully moved from the old infinity 2 to the new one, please can you tell me what product name appeared in the order email? What product name do you see when you log into BT.com under "My Products" (the text, not the graphic, please!)

In both places I see "BT Infinity Option 2" which I think is the old product. Does anyone else see "Unlimited BT Infinity 2"?

Thanks.
Jonathan.

Sorry, I can't answer your questions, but
- you can upgrade online via My BT
- It takes 5 days for the throttling to be removed

Thanks. If it takes 5 days, then that could well be my issue! I'll post back next week!

Hi cad42

If you drop me in an email I'll be happy to have a look over your account and verify that you are on the new totally unlimited package.

I see "Unlimited Broadband with BT Infinity 2".

Though the unthrottling may take a few days after the service change, the service change is usually quite quick.
Be aware that while the change is being actioned the website can temporarily report absurd results such as 'No Phone/No Broadband'.
Looks as if BT_CARE will sort it for you; good luck.

your product name wont change at all on the mybt site, even tho many of us moaned about it on the btcare forums it seems it falls on deaf ears.

The throttling will be removed within 5 days usually.

As a BT Infinity customer you are already getting the best speeds possible on your package. To find out whether you could go even faster by upgrading your BT Infinity package please visit www.bt.com/infinity to find out more.

Mine did ~ but the site is so absurd that I wouldn't be surprised at anything it said.
