Regrade from 40meg to 80meg, how long?


[link to this post]
 
Sorry, I did look, but a quick one - anyone know how long it takes for a regrade between tiers takes?

The actual switch takes a few milliseconds - so you will not lose service.

When I moved fro 40 to 80 it took about 7 days from order to switch but could vary depending on Business/Residential.

Sure, that's what I was meaning (I was aware of the lead time).

7 days does seem long for what is really a glorified DLM change...

Mine was done overnight, I was initially connected on 40/2 and they couldn't put the regrade order in until connected, next morning I was on the higher speeds.

I think it is just up to the ISP, which we don't know. IIRC mine was less than a day.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 54.2/15.2Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Yeah, took about 5 hours for me. Switched over at midnight. Very happy.

The 20meg upload is absolutely fantastic. I keep having to pinch myself I'm not on a remote desktop or SSH connection to a datacenter here!
