Please would you correct the Service Centre in my account, in order that it does not show anticipated high speeds (it must be thinking we are on fibre still, as we used to be before we moved house in March). Although the word "UPDATED" appeared about a week or so ago, the numbers under that have not changed. Recently the speed has been, on average, about 12 and I do not think "fast" broadband would be likely to reach 35 or 40.
Your Line Speed
Est. speed: 35 Mb - 40 Mb
Measured speed today: 18 Mb
Apologies for "multiple posting" but thought maybe this could / should be sorted out in here rather than the fibre threads. (?)
I will raise this with the My Account team, There are a lot of issues with My Account displaying incorrect information at the moment that they are working to fix, hopefully when the next update is released it will be fixed.
Sorry for any confusion caused.
Whilst in the billing topics, as I said before, it seems that, before we moved house on 20th March, we used to pay less for faster fibre than we do now for "fast broadband". In March, faster fibre was £22.45, including a discount due to end in April next year; and unlimited UK calls boost was £6, again including a discount due to end in April next year. Now we pay £21.95 for fast broadband including a discount ending December next year and we pay £12 for the UK calls boost. As that is surely not right, can you rectify that, please?
A "round robin" email from the Talk Talk CEO rather rubbed salt into the wound, so to speak.
We signed up to stay on Fibre when we moved house in March. Talk Talk have failed to put us on Fibre and we have been on Fast Broadband since 23rd March, yet paying more now than we used to pay for Fibre.
I can see your fibre order is due to complete on the 18th.
Once that is complete we can add the missing discount for the calls boost.
Post back on the 18th
I read someone else being given help to use live chat so decided to use live chat myself: explained, hopefully concisely, what had happened since we moved house in March, and asked "Are you able to correct the matter so that we are not paying more for fast broadband than we used to pay for fibre?". After having received an apology for inconvenience caused, I was offered an upgrade to faster fibre (that we were on before we moved house), that would take effect on 18th September. We accepted the offer though, after previous assertions that it would happen, we wait and see, with hope, and look forward to receiving the welcome pack in the post.
I did say that we did not want anything that concerned television; however, the email mentioned a TV upgrade, which we would not use.
The £8 discount is off the fibre package (landline,linerental, internet) usually £29.95 the Unlimited calls boost is usually £12 so you have it for £6, The notes on your account say you agreed 27.95 for 18 months.
We have Fibre.
Speeds are varying from the speed tests: 43, 19, 25, 39. Maybe it takes time to settle down.
If anyone can tell me why it did not happen nearly six months ago, you're a better man than I am, Gunga Din, as the saying goes, because it is beyond my comprehension having suffered months of stress.
When someone tells me how to do this, I shall mark the thread as finished / completed.
Glad we finally got there, Speeds will generally settle down after 10 days. ensure that you leave the router on, otherwise DLM might start lowering the speed thinking the line is unstable
As to why this didnt happen when they original order was placed , is a mystery but my guess it that when the engineer originally went out he discovered there was no capacity at the exchange at that time, so connected you to the LLU service.
Again that is pure speculation on my part , As an apology I have made the calls boot free instead of half price for the remainder of your contract.
Hope that's OK
The router is always on. I do not know what DLM is, but I don't want it lowering the speed thinking the line is unstable
"As to why this didnt happen when the original order was placed , is a mystery" - a mystery indeed. An engineer came, as expected, three days after we moved house on 20th March, and connected the router in the garage, to our surprise; and he said he would return to do the Fibre. The rest, as you know, is history; no engineer has been since, internet connection was intermittent and slow, we relocated the router in the house, appointments made and not kept, telephone calls between Talk Talk and ourselves, etc and, eventually, one live chat conversation produced Fibre. All is well now; fingers crossed.
Thank you for saying that you "have made the calls boot free instead of half price for the remainder of your contract." Sorry not to understand, but would you mind explaining that, please? Thank you.
This will make your Fibre speeds faster.
It is normally @£5.00, unless applied at a special discount, and yours is free. This is how it affects speed:
Your Anytime Calls Boost is also free, instead of at the half price discount agreed earlier.
I would relax and be happy with all of this!
Got there at last, @JDean16.
