Upgrading to fibre

Hi, myself and my partner are working from home and the internet is so slow. So we ran a service check and showed we are using too many video streaming items and suggested we move to fibre. I clicked upgrade and my account is now showing that i am on fibre but our internet is still really slow. 
how long does it take for Fibre to take affect? 
we have turned off all other devices or put them on aeroplane mode to help.

thanks!

Hi @Sanderh welcome to the community your post has been flagged for assistance and you should hear during the day. Your sync rate will be a good indicator Check your sync speed .

 

Then try once a 30 minute router reboot, leave the router switched of for 30 minutes.

The team here will also check your line for any faults.

Regards Divsec, I don't work here, know little, and have too many opinions.

Hi Sanderh,

 

Thanks for your post and I'll take a look now. I've run a test on the line which has detected a possible voice fault. Could I just confirm, are you experiencing any issues with the voice service such as no dial tone or noise on the line?

 

Thanks

Hi Sanderh,

 

Line tests are showing a potential telephone fault so I've raised this to BT Openreach as a non-appointed task. We should receive an update within 72 hours so if you don't hear anything beforehand can you bump the thread on Monday and we'll check for updates

Hi @OCE_Chris just to say the internet light is now showing up red in the router and we can’t get on it at all. 😞

Hi Sanderh

 

Apologies for the delay.

 

This fault is still under investigation with the line engineer, we have no further updates at present.
