First post - seen lots of useful info here so thought I'd ask a question.
I'm delighted to say at LONG LAST my local exchange (SMBTH) has just yesterday been enabled for WBC including ADSL2+ and Annex M.
I've been with EE (Orange/Wanadoo) for years now and currently get around 6Mbit/s download speed. I get a sync speed of 6.88Mbps with a 13dB line attenuation so I'm expecting a fairly big improvement from ADSL2+ as I'm very close to the exchange.
My question is what happens now? Obviously I'm keen to be upgraded asap but I want to know whether I just have to wait for EE and BT to eventually get round to upgrading or whether I can speed up the process at all? I'm guessing it could be weeks or months before EE do anything about it with no intervening action - I just wonder if anyone has ever had any success in speeding up the process?
Failing that - if I switched ISP, would that mean I was migrated when I switched now that it's enabled?
You can pester existing ISP to switch you, but be aware the availability of ADSL2+ over WBC can take a while to trickle down the call centre systems. Its cheaper for an ISP to do people in bulk, but as WBC is cheaper per month for them anyway they usually will do it if you pester.
If you migrated to a provider using WBC ADSL2+ then they should put you onto the new speeds.
