I think that usually an existing customer will get some sort of welcome credit against part of the cost, but there is actual work to be done by the technicians to change a circuit over from standard ADSL broadband to fibre broadband, so it is not unreasonable for there to be some sort of one-off charge.
I see from my April 2012 bill that I paid a Fibre Activation fee of £25.

I'm wanting upgrade to fibre , I've seen its free set up but after reading the terms and conditions it says you may be charged £85 ? Any ideas why.
You shouldn't have to pay anything with the current offer that TT have going, until March 16th they are offering free installation & free activation, TT clearly state that new & existing customers are all treated the same so you should be ok.
Perhaps an OCE could clarify this for you?
Hi @Marky mark1
The guys are correct, you'll not pay for connection/set-up during the current offer period.
The small print says "There is no set up fee but you may see a charge and full credit of a further £85 on your first bill."
So, it's just a TalkTalk accounting thing. But interesting, nevertheless, when BT Openreach charge TalkTalk just £49 (according to the BT Openreach pricing list)
