BT Mobile Speed Increase?


[link to this post]
 
I started to notice things download a lot faster on 4G. so I did a test. I am on the 20GB package for £15 a month - and yet I am maxing out today at 60mbps which I thought was an extra cost?

Anyone else getting this? I am using a OnePlus 3T and this literally started to happen today

Seems like they didn't know the phone was out - caught it and then banded it as it's back to normal today frown

I was maxing out at 60mbps which I think is the extra speed limit. All I know is my data went down a hell of a lot, so I have decided to downgrade to the 500MB option, then cancel with 4 months to go and they will charge me abut £14 to leave

And then I will have to go back to 3.

Wouldn't mind Virgin adding an increased speed and on to their packages,,,, currently max out at 24/7mbps regardless of signal strength or area....

Can't complain for £15 a month and no contract though.... not noticed any issues with my usual usage.... would be nice to get VoLTE again though.

Hi Matt,

Well I dumped them today and went back to 3. £15 a month for AYCE data texts and 600 mins - which is more than enough for me I use the TTB Talk2Go app more than I do minutes anyway - and I was getting through 20GB on BT like nothing

Hi mate, fair enough, been tempted b y 3 a few times but my experience has been dire to say the least and as silly as this will sound 'I don't like having no 2G to fall back on'...

Specially considering where I'm going to be living for a bit.

Saying that Virgin may struggle as well, but I'll see what happens.

I've never seen it fall back to 2G, or I don't think so anyway.

It's hit and miss for me. Last time I was getting insane speeds but now on this new contract at the same place i get less than BT. But the data is back constant again which is the main thing. BT mobile was good value and good coverage and signal, but the 20GB didn't last long, admittedly 3 weeks out of the month, but still not enough.

it amazes me how much data you manage to use every month laugh

I thought I was a heavy data user, despite me dropping my usage considerably over the past year or so.
