I'm looking to upgrade from my current 'L' broadband package (10mb) to a 60mb service and would appreciate any advice on the best way to proceed.
I've been with VM for about 5 years and am currently paying £27.50/mth for 10mb (!). From the VM website, I understand the current price for 60mb (after the introductory 3 month offer) is £27.50/mth, so I'm hoping my upgrade from 10mb to 60mb will not result in any increase to my monthly bill. First question, is that likely?
To complicate matters a little, my area is due to be upgraded for free (i.e. from 10mb to 20mb) "from July onwards". Would I be better off waiting for the free upgrade to 20mb, then calling to upgrade to 60mb? Would it make any difference if I ordered now instead? Also, is "from July onwards" likely to mean July/August or could it be significantly after that (e.g. 2013)?
Finally, I believe I'll need a Super Hub to take advantage of 60mb speed (I currently have the small black modem). Can this be self-installed or would it require an engineer visit? I'm fairly tech-literate (and am out of the house at work for most of the day!) so would prefer the self-install if possible - is that an option?
Sorry for the long-winded post! Any advice (on any of the questions) would be much appreciated.
